Throwdown


New album Intolerance is awesome. I usually avoid anything even remotely straight edge, but damn! Sounds like a lost Pantera album.

I can't even remember the last time I heard anything about them. It's a shame, as I had hoped to never hear about them again.:P

Throwdown turning to Pantera is what made me run away from them.

They lost me when they started to sound like Pantera, always liked the old singer better. There first album with this guy singing was pretty good though, but then it went downhill.

what's the deal with Pantera here? What exactly does everyone dislike them for? Badass metal with a guitar sound like no other and typical hardcore style lyrics? Been a fan since like 92 when I bought Vulgar on cassette because the cover looked cool.

I think the thing that turned people off on Pantera was that so many douchebags followed them back in the day.
Rednecks, jocks, etc. pretending to take that tough guy thing to heart, even if it wasn't intended to come off that way.
In fact, from what a friend told me, who had the pleasure of hanging with Darrel and Vinnie, is that those guys were solid, genuinely cool nice fellas.

I love Pantera musically, but Phil's dumb "what you talkin to me?" corn ball lyrics / vocals/ tude turned me off after a while. Maybe it is what I mentioned above, with bozos local to me strutting around in Pantera shirts starting fights and what not.

Having said that, I had them on the other day and thought on how sad it is that Darrel's life was cut short wondering what he could have been capable of musically had he not been murdered.

I love Pantera. Saw them on every tour, including Cowboys from Hell when I was like 14 in a small club where Dimebag gave me a beer. Cool motherfuckers.

That said, I still think Throwdown chug gallons of cum provided by gay giraffes.

Jawn hit it on the head I think. Pantera just never clicked with me. Always seemed to just try hard and lacked a feeling of being believable maybe.

Older TD with the previous singer is my favorite. It's all a personal pref. Just my two cents.

Phil fucks up Pantera like Bono fucks up U2 haha. Musically they're amazing but a lot of Phil's lyrics & definitely the attitude is where it turns to shit.

As for Throwdown, I can't remember the last time I listened to them and I have no desire to test the waters with this.




A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.

The last thing I liked from Throwdown was Haymaker. I thought that was a solid album, then Vendetta ruined it for me. I'm just not interested.
