BROWBEAT Unleashes the Sound of Rebellion with “The Showdown” EP; Video for Title-Track Online

The time of rebellion has come! Tomorrow the Italian hardcore/metal legend BROWBEAT will finally release the new EP The Showdown – a razor-sharp attack against corruption, mass media, and the limitation of our freedom!

With this record the Italian act unleashes his fury against the brainwashing system, the exchange of fake news, and the will to bury the last traces of humanity under a pile of lies!

Watch the new official video for the title-track on The Metallist PR YouTube channel!

Three years after Remove The Control (Indelirium Records, 2019), BROWBEAT comes back with a heavy accusation of those governments corrupted by the powerful multinational companies, responsible for pursuing their dirty interests, illegally exploiting the environment, and limiting our freedom. A fierce criticism is also made against the majority of ignorant and stupid people who have been brainwashed by the media colluded with the power. The authors of No Salvation (Vacation House Records, 2000) – one of the most important albums in the Italian hardcore scene – come back with a 5-track EP for fans of Hatebreed, Lionheart, Machine Head (early period), Madball, and Acacia Strain, including a furious cover of Sepultura’s classic “Slave New World”.

If you are fan of hardcore and groovy riffs, this is a release not to be missed!
