Additional Notes
Originally started as project-band, made up by members of Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Superjoint Ritual, Crowbar and many others. When C.O.C. was put on ice in 2006 and Pantera broke up for good in 2003, they decided to make Down their main band. In spite of this, Kirk Windstein and Patrick Bruders are still involved in Crowbar and Jimmy Bower is still involved in Eyehategod.

Todd Strange is credited with playing on NOLA, but all bass on the album was played by Kirk Windstein. Strange was a full member of the band before and after the album was recorded but the other members of the band were not confident he could perform to the standard needed for the recordings.

After the release of the NOLA album, Down called it quits in 1996 because of all members continuing to work on their own projects. They did, however, reform in 1999 and then released their second album Down II, before disappearing once again. After Hurricane Katrina disaster, Down regrouped again for Down III: Over the Under. The title is a reference to the band members getting over various personal low-points, including Katrina and the murder of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.

Big Ross is generally considered a member of Down despite only making occasional recording contributions and not touring with the band.

In late 2009 Rex Brown was hospitalized after being diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. He was replaced onstage by Danny Theriot. As of June 22, 2011, Rex is no longer part of Down.
