Vocalist Dave Peters of THROWDOWN recently revealed his 10 favorite albums of 2007 for MySpace's "A Place for Metal". Watch the seven-minute clip below.

THROWDOWN's latest album, "Venom & Tears", was released on August 7, 2007 via Trustkill. The CD was produced by Mudrock, who has done seminal work with such bands as AVENGED SEVENFOLD and CHIMAIRA.

THROWDOWN bassist Matt Mentley previously stated about "Venom & Tears", "This album was a lot more collective in the writing. The new songs really stretched my abilities as a player rather than falling back on same progressions we already did in previous albums. However the songs are a blast to play and will be amazing in our live set." Vocalist Dave Peters added, "We kinda went back to our roots as far as what got us into playing music, rather than sticking to what got us into hardcore. When I saw my first hardcore band live in 1992 I remember thinking, 'Whoa, this is like PANTERA without the guitar solos.' We weren't trying to consciously add metal or other elements into our songs. When we wrote 'Haymaker' (2003) that's about as bare bones and raw as it gets. Add four years later of playing and touring together to that and we've developed quite a ways with influences, execution, and fuck it, we'll play a solo if we want to too."
