Recently, Texas based hardcore/thrash metal band, Power Trip, have announced the follow up to their iconic, most recent album, “Manifest Decimation”. This upcoming album, titled “Nightmare Logic”, is assumed to be released in either late 2016 or early 2017. However, what is know for sure is that the first single off the record, “Firing Squad”, will be released this Tuesday! This record will be the first full length album by the group since 2013, and the anticipation for this new material is at an all time high, especially for massive fans of the Southern hardcore/thrash metal band like myself!
Power Trip is one of the members of a short, but paramount list of modern thrash metal based bands that I actually thoroughly enjoy. I usually find it hard to get into any thrash metal artists, due to the fact that the metal subgenre is not a division of music that I find highly entertaining or inspiring. However, Power Trip is so skilled in their unique mix of aggressive hardcore music and hard-hitting, in your face thrash metal that it is nearly impossible to not absolutely love their material, especially “Manifest Decimation”. Even if you don’t particularly care for either the hardcore or thrash metal subgenres, the Power Trip discography is something you absolutely need to listen to. I definitely recommend starting with later releases by the group, but regardless of where you start, you need to give Power Trip a chance if you haven’t yet.
Next week I will be writing a review for the first song off the upcoming 8 track album. I highly doubt it will be anything but flawless and absolutely addicting, but I will be most interested to see how it compares to “Manifest Decimation”.
