Power Trip - Power Trip

Location:  Dallas, TX
Genre:  Hardcore / Metal / Thrash
Release:  2011

The newest offering from hardcore thrashers Power Trip is quite the banger.  Unfortunately this is a streaming only release until the official vinyl is pressed.  Opening this record is the song Devine Apprehension which sets the tone for this album.  All the necessary elements for a solid hardcore / trash album are in place blending the speed of Exodus and Anthrax with the heaviness of the Cro-Mags and Leeway.  The second track, Suffer No Fool, musically reminds me of the song Crush The Demoniac by the Cro-Mags.  This entire seven-inch has a very strong Cro-Mags Best Wishes vibe to it which I really dig.  To close this out they recorded a cover of the Prong song Brainwave.
