New Band To Burn One To: THROW THE GOAT

HEAVY PLANET presents...


BAND BIO:

For those of you who like your rock ‘n’ roll hard and edgy and are a bit tired of the “Temecula set list” of classic rock and Johnny Cash covers that most local bands furnish, then there’s a group from Idyllwild that deserves your attention — the brain-melting “mountain metal” of Throw the Goat.

Comprised of longtime friends Michael “Barba Rojo” Schnalzer (bass/lead vocals), Brian “Puke” Parnell (lead guitar/vocals), “Johnny Trash” Wilson (rhythm guitar) and Tim “Senor Queso” Olivier (drums), Throw The Goat is a self-described “nu grunge stoner punk” band that is a “wrecking crew of heavy rock madness.”


THOUGHTS:

"In a way stoner punk is a bit of an oxymoron, stoner usually means slow and lethargic while punk is all about attitude and is fast-paced. Forget the labels, Idyllwild, CA band Throw the Goat is straight up rock and fuckin' roll. Blasting their way through 12 songs no longer than 5 minutes each on their debut full-length album "Black Mountain" the band shows the furious pace at which their music is played. There are no "epic" songs on here, this is just a terrific high energy rock album with a raspy pissed off vocalist, steady rhythm section and sing-along choruses. The band occasionally slow things down a bit, such is the case on "Break the Mirror" buts redeems themselves with the meaty punk anthem "Beef". This is a fun album with catchy songs and balls-out passion and attitude. I am willing to bet that this band puts on one hell of a live show."

  2. I’m the kinda girl who sings in the shower, talks to animals like they are people, packs way too much for a weekend trip, puts on a smile because people expect it, holds back her feelings because she’s been hurt too many times to count, hates mornings but will get up for a cup of coffee, acts tough but cries when she gets mad, says she isn’t ticklish when she really is, and wears her heart on her sleeve and hope no one rips it off and smashes it.
