iTunes Review

Achieving elder-statesmen status in the world of hardcore music can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it means you've enjoyed a long career and earned countless fans. On the other, in a genre as rigid as hardcore can be, it means those fans expect a certain stylistic uniformity. Throwdown bucked this expectation with their previous two albums, Deathless and Vendetta, wherein they experimented with melodic choruses, stratospheric solos, even harmonies—nodding to acts ranging from Pantera to Alice in Chains. For Intolerance, they go back to the basics, delivering an album that clocks in at a concise 28 minutes of near-constant brutality. From the explosive "Fight or Die" to the blitzkrieg of "Hardened by Consequence" to the caustic thrum of the title track, this is some of the most brutal music of the band's career. The standout track "Defend with Violence" serves as a mission statement: "Defend with violence/Our honor, our way of life," roars Dave Peters amid harrowing blast beats and churning guitars.

Customer Reviews

Very repetitive

Throwdown is a band with a lot of potential, however, in the case of this album it is not fully realized. The riffs on this album are all very similar, consisting of down tuned open E palm muting with some down tuned power chords thrown in here and there. The thing that bothers me about this album is that the riffs all sound the same, and there is not really much difference between the songs. To me, they all sound the same, like one long song. Also, when songs clock in at 2 minutes, it is really hard to develop a riff, or an idea for a song to set it apart from the others. Many of these reviews were written in December and early January, way before the album was even released, so writing a review before an album comes out is just downright silly. I don't understand how you can write a review off of one song from a demo and say "it seems solid, expecting great things". That's just wishful thinking, and giving a one song demo a 5 star review over a month before the album's release is downright fanboy propaganda. For those of you comparing Throwdown to Pantera, yes, the vocals do resemble Pantera, and that is one thing this album has going for it. However, the music is overly simplistic, and very easy to play, whereas Pantera is full of technicality and virtuosity on the guitar side. Some of the pedal combinations that Dimebag used in Pantera were groundbreaking, so if you are going to use the Pantera comparison, at least have an idea of how complex some of Pantera's arrangements are. The lack of good guitar solo's from Throwdown is a letdown as well. Don't get me wrong, they have some material that is great, but this is not it. From my perspective, it sounds like this album was thrown together in a very short amount of time with very little effort. I don't want to sound like I am ripping on these guys, but if you listen close, and actually review the whole album instead of just one song before publishing a review, you may come around to my point of view. On the plus side, I like the lyrics and the vocal delivery.

Straight forward straight edge

Deathless was a departure for throwdown but was a amazing record, a classic in the groove metal style, Intolerance is a return to their more hardcore roots, very to the point and hard and heavy throughout, has the great production values of Deathless but with a more stripped down approach, strong messages in the lyrics and very consistent,if you loved vendetta you will eat this up


I really like the album and yes i already bought my copy i simply do not like the fact that the album is 28 mins long the songs are 2 minutes but oh well. Great record though!


Formed: 1997 in Orange County, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

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...
