Throwers is a band from Germany, founded in 2011. Since then, they have been recording, touring, recording, touring, recording and touring. They shared the stages with acts like Celeste, Ken Mode and Mantar, among others. I can only imagine how destructive those evening must have been, judging from what I'm listening to right now. This goes beyond sludge. In fact, I think these guys just discovered the hardcore version of sludge metal.
Anyway, to hell with all the classification-attempts because those seem to be wasted on Throwers. Somehow, I think being asking about their influences, they will probably answer 'the heaviest of any genre'. The result is a crushing amalgamation of sludge, post-metal, grindcore and hardcore. The only thing that seems to be a constant, is the thick earthquake-causing sound coming from all the instruments and the pissed-off vocals.
To give you an example of how heavy Throwers actually are, let's check out some of the possible influences. Besides the fierce outbursts of metal, there are a few calm passages. Yet, instead of being atmospheric soundscapes, Throwers turn them into noise-drones. Furthermore, there are very few of those breathers. The rest is sheer throatsnapping insanity, complex, technical, fierce, brutal and punishing.
In Seven songs, Throwers guide you through a dirty and impending world where everything that represents beauty is mercilessly destroyed. I'm not going to name a favorite track, because the whole damn thing is absolutely overwhelming. Fans of sludge, noise rock, hardcore, grindcore or anything 'fucking heavy' for that matter, should check this out. If you survive, you will be so damn satisfied by this piece of mayhem...
