Throwdown - Holy Roller (CD)

Holy Roller

For all of you who don't know this band I have to warn you about something… THROWDOWN is one of the best and heaviest fucking bands out there! We're talking about a band that can rip your head off with its unique Hardcore sound! The US metallers are here with a brand new album, and I got this single CD to have a taste of what is about to follow with the full-length Venom & Tears, which if I judge by this CD will kick you right in the face!

The California based act is active since 1997 and fortunately for us, the music lovers, has delivered incredible albums like Haymaker (2003) and Vendetta (2005). The band is one of Trustkill's strongest weapons for sure, and their new album seems to be raising their name even higher in the Metal scene. Many line up changes and tough breaks occurred, but THROWDOWN showed their strength and overcame everything. Let's not forget that these guys have shared the stage with acts like LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING and SOULFLY, and have also played in festivals like Ozzfest and Sounds Of The Underground.

If you have been bored of every fucked up loser trying to be the tough guy and swearing allegiance to Hardcore and the next time he is playing Emo and Metalcore just to follow some trends, THROWDOWN are here to keep this goddamned scene real and unfold their brutality! This band is like nothing you have heard before. Try mixing the true Hardcore music with some groovy Thrash Metal stuff like PANTERA. Basically, THROWDOWN can be described as a more thrashened version of HATEBREED. Low tuned guitars, fucking heavy sound and great rhythm section are being accompanied by Dave Peters' (ex-BLEEDING THROUGH) vocals and offer a more than interesting result. I think I don't have to make any comments regarding the sound, since THROWDOWN always had heavy and solid sound.

Many bands try to keep it real or keep it true. THROWDOWN don't have to try, they just do it! In my humble opinion, these guys are - along with HATEBREED - one of the best band that brutal Hardcore has to offer. This single CD made my day, and if Venom & Tears is like this, we will probably be talking about one of the top 5 releases of 2007. Keep it real fuckers!
