Vocalist David Bunton commented on the new album: â€œBack Breaker is the sum of our bandâ€™s raw power, aggression, and total dedication to heavy metal. Itâ€™s all about our band getting what we do live on tape. Back Breaker is the record The Showdown made when we stopped caring about anything but heavy metal. If a riff is heavy, you donâ€™t have to over think it. Just let it crush you. We are 100% dedicated to heavy metal and pushing ourselves to playing it as loud and rude as possible.â€
The track list for Back Breaker will be as follows:
01 – Titanomachy – The Beginning
02 – Hephaestus – The Hammer of the Gods
03 – Aphrodite – The Disillusionaire
04 – Achilles – The Backbreaker
05 – Prometheus – The Fires of Deliverance
06 – Cerberus – The Hellhound Awaits
07 – Odysseus – A Song of Hope
08 – Ares – I Am Vengeance
