THROWDOWN Frontman On Splitting Hairs
Dave Peters of THROWDOWN has penned a guest blog for Headbanger's Blog about the fusion between the hardcore and heavy metal musical genres. Read it at this location.
THROWDOWN's new album, "Venom & Tears", is scheduled for release on August 7 via Trustkill Records. The CD was produced by Mudrock, who has done seminal work with such bands as AVENGED SEVENFOLD and CHIMAIRA.
Peters previously stated about the new CD, "We kinda went back to our roots as far as what got us into playing music, rather than sticking to what got us into hardcore. When I saw my first hardcore band live in 1992 I remember thinking, 'Whoa, this is like PANTERA without the guitar solos.' We weren't trying to consciously add metal or other elements into our songs. When we wrote 'Haymaker' (2003) that's about as bare bones and raw as it gets. Add four years later of playing and touring together to that and we've developed quite a ways with influences, execution, and fuck it, we'll play a solo if we want to too."
