With VENOM AND TEARS, its third outing for the Trustkill label, Throwdown fires another salvo of hardcore artillery. As on past outings, the Orange County, California band stays true to its no-frills, metal-tinged sound, as frontman Dave Peters leads the ensemble with signature ferocity on stinging tracks such as "Holy Roller" and "Weight of the World."
