I'm a total audio snob. If songs or podcasts sound like shit, I will turn them off. No questions asked. This week's band sounds fucking incredible. Their vocals, guitar, the production/mix-awesome. Throw The Fight is from Minneapolis, MN and is one of the "harder" or more progressive bands I've featured on #audioangst so far.
First things first. I love 80s music so whenever I hear a present-day band do an 80s cover, it immediate bonus points. Throw the Fight has a cover of (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight that is AMAZING. This up-beat, rocking version would make the original band, Cutting Crew, proud. The double bass drum makes me want to lift heavy shit and slam it on the ground. Now, let's get into the band...
The band formed in 2003 and consists of: Kade Kastelitz (vocals), Ryan Baustert (guitars), Kris Weiser (guitars) and Jeff Baustert (drums). These guys are musically influenced and ran inspiration from bands like; Rise Against, Story of the Year, Killswitch Engage and Papa Roach.
In addition so their banging 80s cover, I really like "Bury Me Alive." It's the perfect balance between progressive, hard rock and punk music. Their latest single, "Going Numb" is already at 50K listens (at the time of this article being written). If you're more of a pop-punker, you need to also check out their song "Wolves in the Dark."
I appreciate all the support and thank you so much for reading this article. If you want to take your support to the next level, I'd be grateful if you checked out our merch and I'll see you next time.
