THROW THE FIGHT is another band that I've recently found out about after listening to their music on Spotify. This is one of those albums though that I am very mixed about. First off, this album has a ton of potential to be great, with an interesting mix of metal, rock, and punk, and has songs that stand out as good songs, such as THE WRECKAGE, HIS BLOOD MY HANDS, IT's FOR YOU, and WEAKEST HOUR. However, the vocalist (even though he has a good singing voice that sounds like a cross between 36 Crazyfists, Depswa, and Thousand Foot Krutch) does a not-so-good job at screaming. On some tracks, it's used to a good affect, but on others, it's somewhat misplaced, and at times goes way over the top. The song STOP YOURSELF is a huge example of this, with a bridge featuring annoying screaming that makes the song unlistenable. Now, by how I'm executing this review, you may think I'm being too harsh on this album, but really, I just think it's OK, despite its huge flaws. Like previously stated, this band has potential to be great, but the end result is sort of disappointing. I would say to buy this album with caution.

Before I get into my review, I'll just say this: I've had the privilege of being able to follow Throw the Fight from the beginning. Since Throw the Fight is a local band where I'm from, I discovered them before they even released their four-track EP. I've seen them live. I've talked to these guys (and I must say, they're really cool. There's none of that typical musician arrogance from these guys). I've even been asked by one of their guitarists for feedback regarding a few of their songs. But anyway, the album...

To give you an idea of what Throw the Fight sounds like, their sound focuses on catchy, upbeat riffs with clean vocals and a touch of screaming. The lyrics aren't necessarily the most original, but the sincerity is definitely there.

This record starts off fast with the catchy track "Ready For War", then moves right into "Weakest Hour" without slowing down much. The third song, "His Blood, My Hands" is my personal favorite. The insanely catchy chorus on this track is what sparked my interest in the band in the first place. The next three songs on the album don't stand out, but they each have a bright moment or two. Fortunately, the next two, "Into the Fire" and "It's For You", are both catchy and memorable enough to make up for the previous three. The closer on this album, "Vital Signs", isn't special, and it just didn't seem like the right choice to end the album with.

The bottom line: Throw the Fight demonstrates their potential on this album, especially with the songs "Ready For War", "His Blood, My Hands", and "Into the Fire", but they failed to blow me away. Clocking in at almost exactly 34 minutes, this is by no means a lengthy album either.

Overall, a solid first effort from a young band with a bright future.

Every so often at The NewReview we like to do a little throwback (as a reminder for you people that might have missed out) on some music that we are still getting down and dirty with long after its release. I am talking specifically about a band very well known as Throw The Fight. These rockers out of Minnesota released their first full length album, In Pursuit Of Tomorrow, a little over a year ago. And let me tell you, if you missed out then, don't make the same mistake twice. These guys are well on their way to the top; and after a prestigious mention in Alternative Press where they were voted as one of the Top 10 Unsigned Bands and a great debut album, I see nothing stopping them now. I sat down and really dug in deep with In Pursuit Of Tomorrow, and it still gets me just as fired up as it did the first time I heard it.

This record has an energy that you can feel right off the bat blasting out of your stereo. Track by track, they keep a level of momentum that drives their music right into your veins. "The Weakest Hour" is a fast-paced, rocking little number with a hook that will slice through you cerebellum mercilessly, leaving its catchy chorus stuck in your head for days. "His Blood, My Hands" is the same way. This track has a nice little chug-a-lug with the guitars, a big chorus, plenty of energy, and a nice breakdown...which all make for a good time in my book.

Keep going, because "Stop Yourself" and" Into The Fire" are two songs that really deserve a listen. The guitar work on both of these tracks is charismatic and captivating, and the gritty vocals fit in with their style perfectly. There is just enough variation between singing and screaming in these songs, and the music follows along that path perfectly.
