On neutral territory, very close to the center of the state off of I-20 about 180 west of the DFW area lies the small town of Abilene, Texas. This is where The Zone Sports Bar & Live Music Venue will host the chosen battle ground for a very unique kind of Texas showdown. Three bands have been chosen from both opposing sides, east and west Texas, to give the audience the most intense performance possible and perhaps win them over. The fate of their one shot for an explosive everlasting first impression in a live setting rests in the hands, hearts and bodies of the metalheads who dare to accept the responsibility Saturday night.

Ladies and gentlemen, the breakdown of the moment you have been waiting for. To people who wish they could be here, to the town of Abilene, Texas and the millions that will be following on social media…
