According to a press release, "Countdown is a mixture of brand new material and several rescued-from-the-vaults demo gems, which interlock seamlessly for a classic Driver-style album, aided by Roy Z's emphasis on vintage production values that harken back to the glory days of early '80's heavy metal ala DIO's Holy Diver and OZZY's Blizzard Of Oz/Diary Of A Madman."
Countdown features vocalist Rob Rock (IMPELLITTERI), acclaimed guitarist/producer Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, ROB HALFORD, TRIBE OF GYPSIES) and features original drummer Reynold 'Butch' Carlson (JAG PANZER, JOEY TAFOLLA, TRIBE AFTER TRIBE), along with seasoned players Ed Roth (GLENN HUGHES, MONTROSE, Impellitteri) on keyboards and Aaron Samson (ODIN, GEORGE LYNCH, JOHN 5) on bass.
Additional contributions come from bassists Ray Burke (LIFE AFTER DEATH, Bruce Dickinson) and Daniel Cordova (SHADES OF CRIMSON, VENGEANCE RISING), as well as veteran vocalist Mark Boals (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ROYAL HUNT). Mastering duties were again handled by Maor Appelbaum (Halford, SEPULTURA, Yngwie Malmsteen).
