Throwdown

Orange County, CA, has long been regarded for its contributions to the ever-expanding international hardcore scene, from the positive youth anthems of Insted to the fiery declarations of Inside Out. It's a tradition that has been carried on by Throwdown, a no-holds barred, mosh pit-conducting crew of straight-edge musicians whose lyrical self-determination is as uncompromising as their heavy music. Not afraid to attack in song those who have left their scene and its ideals behind, Throwdown isn't a band that writes "parts" intended to incite the dance floor: their songs are nothing but pure, unadulterated, stomping mosh from start to finish.

Throwdown formed in the summer of 1997, releasing their debut, self-titled 7" single that same year through Prime Directive Records. The lineup for that EP consisted of guitarist Tommy Love, bassist Dom Macaluso, singer Keith Barney, drummer Marc Jackson, and guitarist Javier Van Huss. 1998 saw the emergence of Throwdown's first full-length album, the blistering Beyond Repair, the product of a new partnership between the band and Orange County-based label Indecision Records. After the album's release, Van Huss was replaced by Brandan Schieppati. The following year, the band unleashed the Drive Me Dead 7"/CD EP, also through Indecision. Schieppati was next to leave the band (to concentrate full-time on his other band Bleeding Through), being replaced by Dave Peters.

In 2000, Throwdown put out their sophomore album, You Don't Have to Be Blood to Be Family. They also recorded a tongue-in-cheek metalcore version of Sir Mix-a-Lot's hit song "Baby Got Back" for Radical Records' Hardcore Takes the Rap compilation, which also featured Candiria, Stretch Arm Strong, and the Movielife. Drummer Jackson was then replaced by Eighteen Visions skinsman Ken Floyd. The special relationship between Throwdown and the far flashier metalcore act Eighteen Visions is worth noting. Not only have the bands shared stages together on many occasions, but they have often shared members as well. Van Huss, Schieppati, Peters, Barney, and Floyd have all at one point or another been a part of Eighteen Visions, a band that, while straight-edge like Throwdown, has a decidedly separate musical identity, persona, and agenda.

Next becoming a part of the reputable Trustkill family, Throwdown resurfaced in mid-2003 with Haymaker. The album saw the band's fan base noticeably expand, and earned them a second-stage spot at 2004's Ozzfest. 2004 also brought the release of the DVD Together. Foever. United. Guitarist Love amicably exited at the year's end, and the group soldiered on as a four-piece. Throwdown's follow-up, Vendetta, was issued in June 2005. They co-headlined nationwide dates with the Black Dahlia Murder in early 2006 before heading out as openers that spring for In Flames. A brief Warped Tour stint followed that summer. By this time, the band's lineup consisted of vocalist Peters, bassist Matt Mentley, drummer Ben Dussault, and guitarist Mark Choiniere. Venom & Tears arrived in summer 2007. ~ Ryan J. Downey, Rovi

I used to love seeing these guys at the Showcase, but they need to put Keith back on vocals and stop trying to suck Pantera's nuts.

Pantera meets Hatebreed, what's not to love about Throwdown?
Report as inappropriate
Loved the first 3 albums, but the last couple have too much singing. Go back to the hardcore, angry vocals. Sound like a generic Pantera now, and there is only one Pantera.

I bought Vendetta back in 05 and kicked my A** album front to back awesome heavy and hardcore at its finest right there

They ran out of straight edge lyrics. Now they have upgraded their lyrics.

They definitely don't suck.

Appreciate good music!

How have they sold out? Nobody knows who the f**k they are unless you listen to good underground music, so you can all shut your f**king mouths about TD, they are one of the best bands out there and they motivated me to be straight edge myself, they are pure and true, all of you people don't know s**t about respecting an amazing band

Throwdown along with Hatebreed. R true hardcore, rage n roll.

I was going to write something about how they totally sounded like Pantera, but now I realize how unoriginal it would be to say that. Well, umm... yeah. Nevermind.
Report as inappropriate
Look..all the smack talking about them being PanterA rip offs.

Not every band out there (or metalhead) wants a completely new, untapped sound all the time......no t everyband can be groundbreaki n g and unique.

Some bands do unapologetic a l l y take up another bands sound, throwdown isnt the only.

Its not a bad thing, in fact its an honor for any true PanterA fan. They deserve to be copied, thats flattery.

Throwdown rocks. Thats simply all that matters.

Excellent Thrash metal band, I like it. They perfectly occupy the empty space left by PANTERA, Hellyeah!!!

So they went from being a hatebreed cover band to a pantera cover band?

i dunno how sellout you can be if 99% of people in the world don't know who you are and even 90% of metalheads haven't either and of course all the songs sound the same they are all brutal!!!!!! ! lol
