Blood In The Gears
The Showdown's new album, Blood in the Gears, represents the band down to its DNA, on the cellular level. Blood allows your body to survive. Gears make machines move. This rifftacular Tennessee band's gears are greased with the blood of their passion. And the end result is electrifying.
Nearly every song has a solo, and there ain't nothing wrong with that. Judge even admitted, "This album is influenced heavily by Southern rock, like Pantera. With this record, all we listened to Pantera, Down, Black Label Society. You are supposed to ride a motorcycle while listening to this."
The old saying is "American by birth, Southern by the grace of God." For The Showdown, it's more like "Southern by birth, metal by the Grace of God." Blood in the Gears demonstrates that fact from start to finish.
