You’ve heard it once and you’ll hear it again: Power Trip is metal for punk fans, hardcore for metalheads. Frontman Riley Gale’s brash vocal howlers channel a young Lemmy of Motorhead with the ferocity of early SSD Records bands. While their recordings are ace (try listening to “Manifest Decimation” without breaking into head-bangs, we dare ya) their true power is found in their live show. It gets violent; you have been warned. The Dallas genre-bending punks will be joined by Austin heavyweights Mammoth Grinder, New Brunswick’s Razorheads and Brooklyn hardcore staples AJAX. If you like it loud, you’ll get it loud.
