Beards. Boots. Breakdowns. And a 10-gallon hat.
It\’s a Southern-fried beatdown destined to ignite mosh pits from coast to coast, thanks to the thunderously chunky breakdowns with extra grit and girth. Overall, the song is a pummeling blast of vicious, metal-tinged hardcore, all acerbic guitars and chugging riffs over which McWhorter viciously spits, \”Nothing was given to me / That shit was earned / The hard way.\” It\’s a line that sums up not just the song, but also much of the album as well—and the underlying positivity that underpins all of it.
DeRusha weighs in about the album as a whole, saying, \”This record is every side of Gideon forged into one. The title says it all — MORE POWER. MORE PAIN.\”
Indeed, that song is just the start of the band\’s next chapter. A self-empowering call to arms, it continues —much like the rest of the record— to redefine who and what and why Gideon are. The result is the most uncompromising reason for their existence to date.
