A CHORUS OF OBLITERATION
MONO VS. STEREO
The Showdown is an outfit that has their fingers on the pulse of the new wave of American metal movement. On the Tennessee native’s 10-track entity, you’ll hear a flurry of Swedish influenced guitar runs such as the ones heard in “Iscariot” and “From the Mouth of Gath Comes Terror”, furious vocals sounding like a cross between Lamb of God, Testament, and Shadows Fall, and a plethora of headbanging rhythms and raging drum parts that display the band’s understanding and love of the metal genre. While the market may be saturated with a lot of bands doing the same thing with only slight moderations, A CHORUS OF OBLITERATION exhibits a band who do a little bit of everything very well, a characteristic that sets The Showdown high on the list of new metal bands to explore.
