Below is our complete At The Throne Of Judgement news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Ohio's At The Throne Of Judgement has re-formed, albeit on a "part-time" basis. As you may recall, the band broke up in late-2007 after one release with Rise Records. The group explains:
"We are not going to be a full-time band (full-time meaning we drop everything just to tour the country). However, we will go back to being a part-time band.
"As you know, we are spread out all over the place because all of us attend different colleges in different cities and states. So this isn't going to be easy, and it's definitely going to take a little bit of time. But we feel like we still have to create some siq james wether or not we tour.
"What we plan on doing is writing a new album (which we have already started on). Brad is living in Nashville for school. With him being the main writer in the band and him living so far away we had to work out a new way for our writing process. Lately we have been laying out what we want to do with this album. We have decided to do a concept album. Eric has already written outlines for the entire album, and FYI it is gnarly.
"We have been working on some ideas, and brad has been tracking some of them. We're going to do some pre'production ourselves once we get a few songs done and then enter the studio soon after to record so we can post them! Remember, we are in the beginning process of all this, But I can assure you there WILL be another ATTOJ album!"
Ohio metal band At The Throne Of Judgement has called it quits. Formed two years ago, the band released an album with Rise Records earlier this year. Here's a statement from the group:
"We have come to a point in our musical journey where we have been forced to make a decision. Several unforeseen events have unfolded that have brought us to our current situation. The five of us began touring as 3 students fresh out of high school and two students withdrawing from college. Each member graduating from high school had a significant scholarship to a college that they were turning down to tour. As you may or may not know, you don't make any money touring when you're a brand new thrash/death metal band in the scene. In fact, you lose money (not trying to discourage anyone). We never viewed making money as a priority, but there comes a time where you must realize that it is just not financially possible to continue.
"We are all completely content with the decisions that we have made over the past year and do not regret a thing. One of our goals when we started this band was to make music we enjoy and overall have a good time. As time moved on, we all began to realize that it was inevitable the band would not last forever. We have learned from our experiences and ultimately got everything we wanted out of the band. Therefore, we came to the conclusion that it was time to move on.
"Our music has taken us from coast to coast and everywhere in between. We have seen so many amazing things, met so many incredible people, and have so many great stories to tell. As cliche as it sounds, the friendships we have made with each other and with other bands are priceless and we hope to meet up with all the bands we we have toured with again. We love anyone who has ever come out to a show, bought a shirt, given us a place to stay, cooked breakfast for us, bought our CD, shaken our hand after a show, or shouted that we suck! We could never do it without you guys.
"We will be playing two more shows. One on December 20th at The Mad Hatter with Sea of Treachery, and a final farewell show that is yet to be scheduled. Eric will be performing at both.
"This may be the end of ATTOJ but it is only the beginning of our journey as musicians. We are constantly writing new music, some metal, some not. So definitely keep your eyes and ears open for new projects to emerge from ATTOJ members. We love all of our fans, all of our bros, and all of the bands that don't make money and drive around the country in vans to keep metal alive! First Post, No Care Ever."
