Its Metalmax here coming at you with another blog, this one being a review of a band you most definitely need to be checking out. The band's name is Power Trip and their debut album is called Nightmare Logic. Now this is a band thats been getting some buzz in the underground. They just recently opened for Cannibal Corpse and they continue to win new fans all around with their amazing brand of extreme thrash.
The first track entitled Soul Sacrifice starts off with a big thunderous intro and then proceeds to set the tone for the sound of the rest of the album. Its fast, brutal and extremely riff based and resembles older style thrash metal while adding more modern touches to it. From there on in, you know you're in for a major ride of power. The next two songs are especially something special. Executioner's Tax(Swing of The Ax) has that amazing mosh pit feel that recalls late 80's concerts you'd see from the likes of Exodus and Sepultura. What makes the track so special, is the fact that the guitar solos are just completely out of this world and it feels like you're just jumping off the stage into the crowd. Next up, we have the tune Firing Squad and the beginning of the song appears to borrow a riff from Pantera's Rise while still remaining original and cranking up the intensity. In other words, it would make Dimebag Darrel all the more proud. Waiting Around to Die has an amazing vibrating intro that puts you into a space like trance before the opening riff comes in and takes you on the next journey into the ultimate thrash metal frontier. All in all, the album as a whole is just fun to bang your head to from start to finish. I see an amazing future for these guys and it can only get better from here on in. I give it 10 out of 10 on the askmetalmax richter scale because Nightmare Logic is a very promising debut album and I can only see more greater things for Power Trip in the years to come. so go check these guys out because they're extremely worth it.
