Power Trip : Manifest Decimation

Oil isn’t the only source of power in Texas you know: straight outta Dallas comes the full-throttle hardcore metal attack of Power Trip, whose debut full-length Manifest Decimation drops June 10 courtesy of the mighty Southern Lord label. Inspired by legendary old-schoolers like Cro-Mags and Nuclear Assault, the five-piece barrel through 35 minutes of headbanging, sweat-soaked crossover thrash riffola that will take fans of a certain vintage back to the genre’s 1987 glory days, with frontman Riley Gale leading the troops with Lemmy-esque bark-along choruses and some serious black metal growling. It’s scuzzy, putrid stuff – as if Paolo “Madman” Girardi’s gruesome cover art (above) wasn’t a big enough giveaway – infused with a punk energy that is as addictive as it is exhilarating; check out the title track below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
