Black Sun Down formed in December 2008 at The University of Kent in Canterbury. They started out playing Rock covers in venues around Canterbury. They consider their main influences to be the likes of Led Zeppelin, Guns 'n' Roses, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Black Label Society, Black Stone Cherry and Alter Bridge. Work began on original material in 2011 when the current line-up was finalised. Currently they've written a handful of tracks ready for an EP which they are hoping to record in 2013. Recent gigs include support for Martyr De Mona in London and also a performance at the Metal 2 The Masses competition. There are plans for more gigs to be booked up, and possibly a UK tour, once the EP is completed, but in the meantime they will continue to perform local gigs in Kent and the odd night in London.
