Throwback “Not Falling” from Mudvayne!

It’s time for us to say a few things that might be considered controversial. First off for us, while “Dig” was without a doubt the groundbreaking single from Peoria Illinois quartet Mudvayne, it was their complexities, their use of odd time signatures and tapping sequences and the playing that appeared on their first pair of

Throwback: “Officer Down” from Stampin’ Ground!

In the year 2000, Stampin’ Ground delivered an Earth shattering album that crossed over Groove Metal and Hardcore in “Carved From Empty Words” that Ultimately ended up with the Cheltenham band fronted by Adam Frakes-Sime appearing on the main stage at Download Festival in 2003. Sadly calling it a day a year later but returning

Throwback: “Medicated” by Downthesun!

Some bands are destined to burn out and others to fade away. Originally called The Six and opening for Slipknot in their home town of Des Moines Iowa, Downthesun inked a deal with Slipknot’s Maggot Recordings label after their original label London Sire Records folded. The band were active between 1999 and 2003 with a

Throwback: “The Great Red Shift” by Most Precious Blood!

“Our Lady Of Annihilation” by Brooklyn New York Metallic Hardcore crew Most Precious Blood from 2003 that took everyone by surprise. They had formed a couple of years earlier from the ashes of another band called Indecision and were based around the axe wielding duo of Rachel Rosen and Justin Brannan. The bands second album

Throwback: “Nobody Takes Pictures of the Drummer” by Nora!

New Jersey Melodic Hardcore and perhaps one of the founders of the Metalcore sound crew Nora are actually best known for being the band of Good Fight Music label owner Carl Severson.

Throwback: “Figure of 8” from Kill II This!

Manchester Industrial Metallers Kill II This let us have their third album “Trinity” back in 2001. The band seemed to be on the rise having supported Megadeth on their “Cryptic Writings” tour in 1997 and gaining critical acclaim from Metal Hammer Magazine for their sophomore album “Deviate”, which appeared a year later. They ended up

Throwback: “Ebolarama” by Everytime I Die!

Having formed in 1998, it was June 2003 before Buffalo New York Hardcore Punks Everytime I Die dropped their sophomore album “Hot Damn!” via Ferret Music. Recorded at Trax East Studios in South River, New Jersey with Eric Rachel in the production chair, it famously outsold the bands debut full length “Last Night In Town”

Throwback: “War Is My Shepherd” from Exodus!

Something of a lazy throwback for a Monday morning but why not? When Thrash legends and arguably the fifth member of the “big four” of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax otherwise know as Exodus launched 2004’s “Tempo of the Damned” upon us it was a sonic assault happily received. The bands first album since their

Throwback: “Die MF Die” by Dope!

We could talk about the rumours that the Ghost of Wayne Static is in fact Edsel Dope using the name “Xer0”. It could just be a coincidence that Dope is on the bill for all of the 20th Anniversary Tour for Wisconsin Death Trip by Static-X but… Then again maybe not. It could also be

Throwback: “Disaronno Lips” from Carcer City!

So seeing as it’s Monday and we all hate Mondays (well at least those of us who have to go to work to pay those bills), it’s time for another Throwback tune of yesterday gone by and a trip down memory lane’s yellow brick road. We’re not going to throw back as far as usual
