Overthrown

Genre: Metal

Country of Origin: Singapore

Overthrown is a Singapore based hardcore band (Lion City Hardcore) founded in 1996. Ignoring current musical trends, the band has assiduously carved themselves a path in the local hardcore scene.

Heavily influenced by 90s hardcore icons like Madball,Strife and Earth Crisis to modern day hardcore giants like Terror and Hatebreed, Overthrown plays effusive traditional hardcore with a swirl of swift riffs, breakdowns and in-your-face lyrics. The resurgence of old school hardcore has helped to breathe life to a stagnant genre. With the sound, the passion, and the work ethic to turn attention of even them most fickle fan squarely towards its stage. They released two demos, one split EP and two albums.

Overthrown have actively played tons of shows around the region since 2004 and somehow helped bring a sense of unity back into the scene. They are a living proof that hardcore lives worldwide as they toured Europe successfully in 2012 despite being unsigned to any label. Never backing down on their ideals or changing their style, their no holds barred attitude has built the band an unequaled following that show no signs of limitation. Overthrown will be releasing a new EP in June 2013 and will be heading for their second European Tour in July and August.
