Kerrang! Ranks DOWN IV Part I as the Top EP of 2012
"This is how you do an EP, folks. Six tracks that last longer than most of your albums, some of the heaviest riffs of the year, and the return of one of metal's best ever frontmen (Philip H. Anselmo, y'all). EP of the year hands down. Even better, there's another three due to crawl out of a Louisiana swamp sometime soon!"
