Anybody who knows anything about music, let alone metal, knows that this album owns. Anybody who listens to this album can't deny the sheer talent oozing from each member of the band. Granted, you might not like the album, but you have to respect it. Some of you people get to caught up in "genres", when the people actually writing the music don't give a crap about it. The Showdown just write the music they love, just like so many other successful bands do.
