THROWDOWN Frontman Sings With SOULFLY; Band Prepare For ARCH ENEMY Tour

THROWDOWN have just wrapped up their national tour with SOULFLY. However not before THROWDOWN vocalist Dave Peters joined SOULFLY on stage in L.A., Tucson and Anaheim to perform some of his favorite SEPULTURA songs — "Refuse/Resist" and "Territory". Max Cavalera, who helms SOULFLY, was previously in SEPULTURA, which was a huge influence on countless metal and hardcore bands for their uncompromising brutality and outspokenness. THROWDOWN, who are also known for their hard-hitting brand of hardcore with metal elements, have been covering SEPULTURA's song "Roots Bloody Roots" for years.

Commented Peters: "We were sending a song out to Max every night, he invited me up to his bus to hang out and we talked about how THROWDOWN had been covering 'Roots Bloody Roots' for years and how people brought it up in interviews he had done. He thought it was strange but cool that a hardcore band was covering his songs. He joked about us playing the song and him singing it and it eventually turned into me doing one of my favorite SEPULTURA songs with them."

THROWDOWN, who hail from Orange County, CA, were in their home element when Peters joined SOULFLY on stage. "I felt like a child that got picked for the Make A Wish foundation. I came in too early the first night cause I was so nervous, which I felt dumb about considering I have known that song for thirteen years. It was pretty sweet watching Max play that song at the first Ozzfest in 1996 from 300 yards back to helping him play it a few feet away."
