Throwdown announces new album

Thursday, December 5, 2013 9:26 AM PT / 8,011 views
Official press release: Legendary Southern California metal act, Throwdown, are set to release "Intolerance" on January 21, 2014 via eOne Music. The new LP will be their first since "Deathless" was released back in 2009. Frontman Dave Peters weighs in on the announcement: "Completing this record felt great in so many respects, most important of which was the opportunity to finally give longtime supporters of the band this music that I've had swirling around in my head over the past four years. The variety of people from different places and scenes, who have found the band through vastly different avenues over the past 15 or so years, will each get into it for their own unique reasons I think. And for those who think it's junk, it's only about 28 minutes they have to regret." "Intolerance" combines the massive production punch of the moody, sludgy and powerfully diverse masterpiece "Deathless" (which spawned the Sirius XM staples "This Continuum" and "The Scythe") with the focused resolve of the band's genre-classic-filled back catalog. The big sound that developed on "Deathless" works magic upon the brutal missives found all over "Intolerance," nearly all of which clock in around 2 minutes. "Deathless" and "Vendetta" collaborator Zeuss (Hatebreed, Crowbar, Demon Hunter) returned to mix the new record. Intolerance cover A cornerstone of the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal, Throwdown have earned hard-fought accolades from the likes of Revolver and Metal Hammer magazines, who likened the stomp of "Venom & Tears" to Pantera. Following Dave Peters switch from guitar to vocals over twelve years ago, the band delivered the songs from "Haymaker," "Vendetta" and "Venom & Tears" on celebrated tours with Lamb Of God, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, In Flames, Korn, Fear Factory and Cavalera Conspiracy and at major festivals around the globe, like Download UK. Drummer Jarrod Alexander (American Nightmare, Suicide File, My Chemical Romance) made his first recorded appearance with Throwdown on "Haymaker," returning as a session player again for "Deathless" and the brand new album, "Intolerance." The new album was recorded at Hurley Recordings in Costa Mesa, California with rising producer Davey Warsop and mixed at Planet Z. "Intolerance" features guitar solo contributions from Dave Nassie (Bleeding Through, No Use For A Name, Infectious Grooves), who joined Throwdown's recent touring lineup alongside Demon Hunter drummer Tim "Yogi" Watts and "Deathless" era bassist Mark Mitchell. 01.

Pantera called, they said to stop trying to be Pantera.

anonymous 12/5/2013 10:01:34 AM

They should just stop. The only reason people go to see them is to hear anything off of haymaker or earlier

Hibuddywazup 12/5/2013 10:03:44 AM

Big butts are stoked.

What`s up with all the negativity here?? And I don`t get why sounding like Pantera is a bad thing?????? So what if the band sounds like Pantera because of the vocalist. Should he change his voice just so that people who might think he`s copying Pantera will hate him?? Hell no!

anonymous 12/5/2013 12:02:41 PM

^ Hi Dave Peters!

When I say 'Crowd', you say 'Fund', gaygoats.

anonymous 12/5/2013 10:11:30 PM

I heard a track online. It's good. Haymaker Vendetta-ish

anonymous 12/6/2013 4:56:32 AM

Lolololol@ people still being straightedge

anonymous 12/6/2013 6:00:09 AM

It's weird that this is the same throwdown from back in the day. Haven't listened to them since venom and tears, which is actually good, but not throwdown.

anonymous 12/6/2013 8:42:42 AM


anonymous 12/6/2013 10:36:31 AM

he didn't say it was their best album yet. hopefully that means this band will fckin finally croak.

anonymous 12/6/2013 11:53:39 AM

No one finds it weird that the word "hardcore" isn't used anywhere in this press release? Y'know, considering their roots?

anonymous 12/6/2013 12:25:54 PM

News flash: adult with mortgage and car payment abandons hardcore.

iwilladapt 12/7/2013 11:20:40 PM

venom & tears and deathless are so bad. so, so bad.

anonymous 12/8/2013 4:11:51 AM

They were better when they write songs as jokes. Now they're just a joke.

anonymous 12/8/2013 6:24:03 PM

BEST NEWS ALL YEAR! See all you faaaaartgots in the pit...

anonymous 12/13/2013 6:50:50 AM

Dave Peters likes it raw and won't pull out even if you ask nicely.

anonymous 12/28/2013 3:19:08 PM
