Emotion tempered by diligence. Passion through performance. Each note carries a story of its own.
Captivating the audience on stage, their undeniable chemistry is one of the driving forces behind the melodic metal band TerraDown. Blurring the boundaries of different genres with a passion for pushing their own, every step taken is a move toward growth and development.
Introducing a band with a love for experimental technicality and a touch of theatrics, TerraDown consists of five members from the Netherlands. Their journey began in 2016, with their crowning achievement being their performance at Wacken Open Air in 2019. Now, in 2023, they're staging their revival with the release of the EP and video clip: 'Checkmate.' This release tells a personal tale of losing control, conquering physical and mental illness.

,, ... After those shows the Dutch Metal Battle winning band TerraDown is performing on the Talent Stage. Luckily the sound is way better compared to the sound during Hallowed Fire’s show. So, TerraDown is grooving and pounding very heavily and a huge amount of power is coming off of the stage. Of course, that isn’t only due to the better sound, but also due to TerraDown themselves. Their groove metal brings a very nice and powerful vibe like it should with groove metal. That also makes that quite some physical energy starts moving, for as far as that wasn’t the case already, resulting in quite a lot of headbangers. In addition to this very strong show, there’s something else standing out: the fact that frontman Nick Brouwer is appearing very self-assured. He carries this show in a very masterful way and clearly shows, together with the other members of TerraDown of course, why TerraDown won the Dutch Metal Battle.’’ - Tim van Velthuysen, editor DutchMetalManiac.
