Downtrend / Bio

Formed in 2004, Pikeville Kentucky's Downtrend fuses hardcore riffs with melodic hooks. Downtrend has always been a hard-working band with the reputation of doing whatever it takes to move a crowd. In April of 2007 the band signed with Universal sub-label, Vision Metal Records.

Downtrend has also gained national attention as they have appeared in the April '09 issue of METAL EDGE Magazine with their song "Lover's Leap Weekly" featured on the compilation CD that accompanied the magazine. Downtrend has also made multiple appearances on the television show "Up Late" guesting with such stars as the legendary Pauly Shore. With the April 2009 worldwide release of their Vision Metal debut, "NOVATION", Downtrend unleashed the "Madness" nationwide. In October 2013 the foursome released their follow-up to NOVATION titled "ONE STOP SIN SHOP". "One Stop" reached new levels for the band showing a much more versatile songwriting style. Featuring tracks that could fit in many different genres or styles.
