We are proud to announce that we took home the award for best overall band! We want to take a minute to thank all of our fans who took the time to vote, our friends and family for all the support we have recieved over the years, and the CBC crew for making the Calgary scene so supportive, and welcoming for bands of any calibre. There’s nothing more gratifying, or motivating to recieve such recognition for all the hard work we’ve put in to the band throughout its history, and all the hard work to come in the future of Throne Of Vengeance.
It’s the love of music, the fans, and the support they give us that keeps us doing what we love and never looking back.
We leave you with the quote of the CBC.

About: The Calgary Beer Core was founded by Mark Russell with the goal to get more exposure to Calgary’s great, but ultimately hidden underground music talent. Along with a handful of bands and a lot of work, the Calgary Beer Core has grown into Calgary’s premiere promoter of Hardcore, Rock, Punk, Metal,you name it.The Calgary Beer Core has striven to give back, not just to the music community, but Calgary as a whole. Yearly events like Rock for Tots and partnerships with the interfaith food bank have allowed them to give back to Calgary.
The Calgary Beer Core is also behind the one and only Beer Core Awards, an annual Awards Show that pays tribute to Calgary’s great live acts. Once a year, bands all hope to win the highly prized “Corey” as voted on by their peers.
About TOV: Bridging the gap between metal and rock with help from dual guitar harmonies, pounding drum lines and wide-ranging vocal harmonies, Calgary’sThrone of Vengeance released their EP ‘Live Evil’ on October 19, 2013 that echoes the band’s signature thrash-tinged rock.
“‘Live Evil’ is “a collection of songs based on our experiences in the last two years, covering everything from a close friend’s imprisonment for a victim-less crime to the realization of humanity’s demise to the contrast between good and evil and life and death,” says drummer Trevor Cobb.
“If there’s anything we would like people to take away from the record, it’s that you should be your own person, do what makes you happy, be aware of your world and be real. We have the power to control our own destiny. Together, we are more powerful than any world leader.”
Having shared the stage with numerous legends over the years, including Kill Devil Hill, 3 Inches Of Blood and Steven Pearcy of RATT, Throne of Vengeance is ready to take things to a whole new level with Live Evil. Are you ready for a major ‘bangover’?

“Calgary metal band Throne of Vengeance rule the local rock scene with heart and soul…Recorded with Emmy-winning producer Paul Sabu, who recorded the band’s 2011 debut Flesh Engine and has worked with such names as David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Shania Twain and Prince, it captures Throne of Vengeance’s sound in a huge, warm and oh-so slick way. It’s all pro from the get-go.” – Calgary Herald
“the record follows their 2009 EP Toxic Black Cloud and 2011’s Flesh Engine and delivers the thrash-tinged classic metal for which the quartet is renowned.” – Beatroute
“One of the keys to Throne Of Vengeance’s energy and drive lies in their passion…masters of their own domain…Their work is solid and I recommend you check them out” – Beatroute Magazine
“Calgary has an amazing music scene, and in my opinion, if you want to listen to great metal music in this city, this is the band that you need to see.” – X92.9 FM
“The band have hit the sweet spot of heaviness and melody that is hard to find. They have had a considerable amount of local success and LIVE EVIL will help them continue to build on that…this piece is rock solid release with excellent production and a good mix and balance of the instruments. The band tapped Paul Sabu (Only Child, ex-Malice) and countless production credits of big name artists like Alice Cooper. The songs range from mid-tempo to quite a bit faster, songs like ‘Hands Tied’ almost creeping almost in that power metal speed zone. The quartet use some gang-vocals a bit to back up vocalist Tommy. The band also will throw in a hint of acoustic guitar once in a while as well adding to the rock end of the spectrum.” – Metal-Rules
“…they joyously pay homage to their influences while creating their own distinctive sound…there are no lowlights and no filler tracks – each song is a mighty entity unto itself and worthy of your ears.” – Extreme Metal Television
“Whether you are a die-hard metal fan, or prefer rock n’ roll, Throne of Vengeance is the perfect blend of both… a great album to put on if you’re going to get together with friends, have a barbecue and drink beer. It feels like a summer album, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in feel-good thrash rock.” – Vancouver Metal
“The band is perfect for fans of classic metal such as Dio, Iron Maiden and Megadeth.” – Canadian Music News
““Live Evil” features seven hard rock songs including my two favourites, “Live Evil” and “Terminal Velocity”. One thing that I really enjoy about this album is that guitar reminds me of classic metal. You can feel the passion and drive in the songs.” – Canadian Beats
“Their shows are energetic, well-attended and the crowd absolutely loves them…I’ll babysit those maniacs anytime!..One of the few metal bands out there who are 100% convincing in that they genuinely LOVE what they do, and it shows.” – Philly Roach, Owner/Operator – The Distillery Rock & Roll Ballroom, Calgary
