POINT OF ORIGIN TAKING METAL RADIO BY STORM
DOWNSPIRIT was originally formed in 2009 by SYMPHORCE/Ex-FREEDOM CALL guitarist Cédric “Cede” Dupont in order to fulfil his long-time dream to form a band dedicated to the combination of blues and metal music.
DOWNSPIRIT recently posted footage of the recording sessions for their debut “Point of Origin”. The footage can be viewed at the link below.
In only its first full week at metal radio, “Point of Origin” has been steadily picking up steam thanks to key adds by commercial radio stations: WCHZ (Augusta, GA), WIER (Burlington, VT), WKTA (Chicago, IL), WRIF (Detroit, MI), KJML (Pittsburgh, KS), FMJ (Los Angeles, CA), WEDG (Buffalo, NY) and WKGB (Binghamton, NY).
DOWNSPIRIT‘s main goal is to play live as much as possible – from the smallest club in your neighborhood to the biggest stadiums in the world. Whatever might cross their paths in the long-term future – this band is about to crank your stereos, rock your house and turn it all into one big rock party!
“Point of Origin” is not just an album with excellent songs on it, furthermore it is a sound experience that catches the attention of its listeners from the first note to the last beat! The melancholic feeling of blues music combined with the power of Heavy Metal riffs and strong melodies, a band including well known and talented musicians who came together to deliver quality sounding music with power and passion: THAT’S DOWNSPIRIT!
