Taking a break from the straightforward black metal that usually makes up a Saint Vitus show, the bar tonight hosts Dallas's Power Trip, a band that plays tortured metal overlaid with thrash. The crossover of genres doesn't end there: Frontman Riley Gale is known for his hardcore punk growls often likened to those of Cro-Mags and Discharge. The show follows the release of the band’s debut full-length, Manifest Decimation, one of the best metal albums of the past year. Beyond that, Power Trip are known for their live show (just ask their BFFs Trash Talk) and with the raw violence of openers Suburban Scum, Manipulate, and White Widows Pact, the night should prove to be a bloody one.
