Throwdown Set To Release 'Deathless', Prepare For Tour
November 9, 2009
Throwdown's new album 'Deathless' is being released this Tuesday on E1 Entertainment. The album, 'Deathless', follows Throwdown's most powerfully diverse offering, 'Venom & Tears', which critics hailed as the best effort from the band. Revolver Magazine has called Throwdown “the future of metal.”

Vocalist Dave Peters had the following to say about the forthcoming release:

“We're very excited to have our fans finally hear this album from start to finish. When we write and select songs for the album and then create the track listing, we make it a point to have the sequence flow in a story format, so it's always a little bittersweet when we put a "single" out before the record is actually released. We like sharing that one song but at the same time would rather fans hear it in context of the album.”

“We've been off the road for about a year, immersed in the process of making this record the best we've ever created on a songwriting and production level. Hearing it in its completed state for the first time as a band was gratifying, but finally getting to share it with the people that matter most and then play those songs live for them is really what completes the whole circle. Feels good to finally be at that point.”

Throwdown Prepares For The Deathless Tour I
September 28, 2009
Prepare for an event you don’t want to miss as Throwdown headlines The Deathless Tour I. The tour will be presented by Hatewear.

Throwdown
will be joined by Bury Your Dead, For Today, Abacabb and The World We Knew. This tour follows Throwdown's current European tour with Chimaira, Unearth and Daath.

The Deathless Tour I
is the first U.S. tour in over a year for juggernauts Throwdown and the first tour in support of the band’s new album, 'Deathless' which will be released on November 10th, 2009. 'Deathless' is produced by Mudrock and mixed by Zeuss (Hatebreed).

Throwdown
vocalist Dave Peters says, “We can't wait to hit the ground running for this record. We haven't toured the States in over a year and have been working our asses off making this album the best we've ever made on both a songwriting and production level. We're playing two songs off ‘Deathless’ on our European tour with Chimaira and Unearth right now and making sure we don't fuck them up for everyone in the States.

We're really excited to be out with our good friends in Bury Your Dead as well. We've had a lot of our fans asking for this tour over the years and we're excited to finally make it happen after so long.”

Throwdown
, tightly coiled, is squeezing the world for the kill and poised to sink their collective fangs into the backbone of American metal. Rising from the underground world of the do-it-yourself hardcore scene with a recipe made up of Pantera, Machine Head, Sepultura and early Metallica, their mission is boldly proclaimed both on the stage and on record.

The highly acclaimed band has spent the last several years touring relentlessly on shows such as Ozzfest (2004), Sounds of the Underground (2005), and the Vans Warped Tour (2006 & 2007). Previous Throwdown tours include a headlining tour with Soilwork as well as tours supporting Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God, As I Lay Dying, Korn, Ozzfest, In Flames, Machine Head, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy and more.

The upcoming album, 'Deathless', follows Throwdown's most powerfully diverse offering, 'Venom & Tears', which critics hailed as the best effort from a band. Revolver Magazine has called Throwdown “the future of metal.”

Despised Icon Post New Video Online, Announce Fall Tour
September 18, 2009
Brutally intense, unrelenting and outright savage are just a few ways the metal community will describe the new offering from Montreal’s hottest export Despised Icon as their new full-length effort, 'Day of Mourning' is a true lesson in violence. This unrelenting new offering is set for a Sept. 22nd release.

The group recently shot a new conceptual video for the album’s vicious title track, “Day of Mourning,” and it’s definitely not your traditional metal video clip. The video was shot with famed Montreal hip hop video producers, Kartel Film. Expect to see cemetaries, fancy cars, 40 ozs, scene sluts and a double dose of brutality. Head over now to www.myspace.com/despisedicon, or simply scroll down to check it out.

All of you DI fanatics out there can rejoice as the band will be embarking on a massive North American headlining tour this fall with Through The Eyes of The Dead, ABACABB and Molotov Solution. This Lambgoat.com sponsored “Day of Mourning Tour” kicks off on Sept. 25th in Grand Rapids, MI so be sure to either see below or visit the band’s newly revamped MySpace page in order to view their complete touring itinerary.

The material contained on this disc should come bearing a caution label stating “Is known to evoke extreme, erratic and violent tendencies coupled with a desire to kill.” The dichotomy of the dual vocal assault of Alex Erian and Steve Marois adds depth and dynamic that few bands can attempt to replicate. The addition of new bassist Max Lavelle quickly proved his skills keeping up with the maniacal drumming of Alexandre Pelletier who delivers his most impressive performance yet, raising the bar for his peers within the genre. Longtime guitarist Eric Jarrin and newcomer Ben Landreville round everything out with a blistering, frenetic barrage of cut-throat riffs.

Despised Icon
brought on board an all-star team for the 'Day of Mourning' recording process. They joined back up with longtime producer (and former guitar player) Yannick St-Amand for all tracking duties with renowned producer Andreas Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, Born of Osiris) entering the fold to mix the effort, with mastering being handled by Alan Douches (Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nile).

Despised Icon Announce Headlining Fall Tour Package
August 14, 2009

Alex Erian
(vocals) further comments: “The ‘Thrash and Burn’ tour is almost halfway done already. Thanks to everyone that came out so far. The shows are huge. We’ll be back on a massive headlining North American run in the fall with our new record in hand. We’ll be sharing the stage with our homies in Through The Eyes Of The Dead, ABACABB and Molotov Solution. We haven’t played with any of those dudes since 2007. Can’t wait to meet up again and destroy a town near you! We’ll be playing a bunch of cities that were skipped on ‘Thrash and Burn’ so come hang out.

“Also, we want to say thanks to everyone that checked out our new song ‘MVP’ on our MySpace. Your support and encouragement means a lot to us. We recently shot a video for the record’s title track ‘Day Of Mourning’ with famed Montreal hip hop video producers Kartel Films. Expect to see cemeteries, fancy cars, 40’s, hot bitches and a double dose of brutality. Trust us, the video rules! We’ll post the new song, along with pics and a making of the video soon.

“Our new MySpace layout is finally online. It has plenty of cool new features. We hope you like it. Also, for all you extreme drummers out there, we’re getting ready to launch www.alexgrind.com in a couple of weeks. The site will be packed with drum clips, pics and news from the beast known as Alex Pelletier. This man isn’t human. We look forward to seeing you all soon.”
