Throwdown set to record album

California's Throwdown will be entering the studio next month with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall) to record their new full-length album, "Vendetta." The effort will consist of thirteen tracks, including the following: Shut You Down Burn I'd Give My Life This Discipline And We Rise Here's what vocalist Dave Peters says about the new album: "We want to remind the hardcore and metal world what this music is and isn't about, because some people seem to have forgotten. We wrote these songs to crush all the trendy bullshit out there, and we're going to do just that... We make it a point to make each record twice as brutal as the one that preceded it and we were worried that we couldn't do that after 'Haymaker.' But two weeks into the writing process for 'Vendetta,' we just had to laugh. These songs destroy that album... We're making the heaviest record of 2005, unless Meshuggah goes into the studio, then we'll be making the second heaviest record of the year... Everyone has that one or two special records that makes them want to punish everyone that ever wronged them. We want to make that record for today's hardcore and metal kids. An album that does what Pantera's 'Vulgar Display Of Power' and Sepultura's 'Chaos A.D.' did for us. We won't be satisfied until we've made that album." Look for the record to hit stores in July via Trustkill Records. Meanwhile, in March, Throwdown will headline a two-week tour with The Chariot and It Dies Today, followed by a U.S. and Canadian tour with As I Lay Dying.

swellsucka 1/14/2005 4:55:14 PM

Cool. I guess.


wyldweasil 1/14/2005 5:01:30 PM

Meshuggah are making an album....


buckwheat 1/14/2005 5:28:57 PM

too not beyond repair no care


DROPDEAD 1/14/2005 5:38:28 PM

honestly, the worst band ever.


youisretarded 1/14/2005 5:52:35 PM

id kick that dude out of the band if i were in Throwdown, for making such a gay statement...and how can you crush a trend if you ARE the trend?


wigjam 1/14/2005 5:56:22 PM

that gay needs to never mention sepultura ever again. and i'm pretty sure they were more brutal and at least decent with the GOOD singer. that shitbag sucks


Beardo 1/14/2005 6:04:01 PM

as much as this band sucks, they are pretty hilarious live. not that i'd pay to see them but when hatebreed is playing it doesnt really matter who else is on the show


BryanFerry 1/14/2005 6:26:51 PM

Just what the world needs...another completely half-dcked hardcore record.


ToDieFor 1/14/2005 6:43:30 PM

hahahhah....."brutal". yeah, "brutal" comes to mind when i think of Throwdown......or not....


ToDieFor 1/14/2005 6:43:57 PM

fred durst called. he said his music already sucks...stop trying to make it worse.


amongdan 1/14/2005 9:52:02 PM

i guess i can say im hopeful that they deliver... people need to stop taking this band seriously and remember they started out as a joke band.


xsamx 1/14/2005 10:22:55 PM

awesome band.


d4n 1/14/2005 10:37:49 PM

i'm going to check out the new album when it comes out


gorilla_nuts 1/14/2005 11:22:13 PM

Dave is a cool dude and all...but what the fck is that crap. Hopefully when he sings it doesn't sound like he's constapated....be prepared for breakdown breakdown breakdown breakdown, fck fck straight edge fck fck got my family fck


KRIZKILLZ 1/14/2005 11:54:11 PM

Is that statement serious? I am aware that Throwdown started out as a joke (good clean fun split anyone?), but that sounds pretty serious if you ask me. "Brutal" and "Heavy"? Throwdown? No.


KRIZKILLZ 1/15/2005 12:00:32 AM

Oh, and look at the bands they're going to go on tour with in support of their "heaviest record of 2005". You don't call yourself "brutal" and then go on tour with christian kids sporting combovers and mascara.


wiretap 1/15/2005 3:40:28 AM

i'm pretty sure no one has forgotten about lameass straight edge anthems.


SeveredInTwo 1/15/2005 3:51:50 AM

Ive just about had it with god damn BROdown!!


a_new_religion 1/15/2005 4:03:23 AM

you guys suck, throwdown rules. the end.


DROPDEAD 1/15/2005 8:45:04 AM

"breakdown breakdown breakdown breakdown, fck fck straight edge fck fck got my family fck" -- haha. that is every throwdown song. they need to break up asap.


disconnect 1/15/2005 9:43:23 AM

everyone suck my weiner, cause old throwdown was fun....i just hope this album doesnt blow dck like haymaker


karatexkid 1/15/2005 11:49:45 AM

maybe we'll get lucky and the new throwdown will sound like meshuggah haha


letsgetserious 1/15/2005 12:18:58 PM

this album will have so much chug


motherfckzombies 1/15/2005 12:39:34 PM

Until they are satisfied?!?!? fck that means they could never break up! fck!


robotplague 1/15/2005 4:34:34 PM

that was the most over confident comment ive heard in a really, really long time. this is most likely going to suck balls regardless.


xscottx 1/15/2005 11:01:29 PM

Good song titles.


thenrobotskill 1/16/2005 12:37:00 PM

Throwdown is horrible, really, really bad.


xscottx 1/16/2005 2:59:36 PM

But they have GREAT song titles though.


xFUCKxEDGEx 1/16/2005 3:21:00 PM

Since when did Throwdown become "metal"?!? fck THAT!!!


xFUCKxEDGEx 1/16/2005 3:22:55 PM

... and just because they were on Ozzfest doesnt mean they can call themselves metal either.


xscottx 1/16/2005 5:13:24 PM

Lamb Of God called them metal. DUH!


xFUCKxEDGEx 1/16/2005 11:32:26 PM

SeveredInTwo 1/17/2005 2:52:50 PM
