Nightmare Logic

If you want to fill the Lemmy shaped hole in your listening space then you need go no further than Power Trip whose new album “Nightmare Logic” is released on February 24th on Southern Lord. The band have that blistering rock and roll swagger which Motörhead had down to a fine art.

Power Trip display that raw energy which is a hallmark of the best rock bands. They extract the best of Hardcore, Metal and Punk creating a lean, fast and potent brew. Hailing from Dallas, the band have taken their classic Exodus-meets-Cro-Mags sound to new places. With elements of bands like Pantera or Pentagram, the sophomore release, and second on Southern Lord Records, raises the bar somewhat. Since 2013’s debut “Manifest Decimation” they admit they have got much better at what they do and that is apparent from the improved song writing and delivery.

The promo says:

.“Gale’s lyrics reflect that aggression by honing in on the devaluation of human life by those who’ve gained power through money and politics. By creating a broad dissection of human suffering above reproach from personal agendas, the lyrics attempt to unify and inspire listeners. Coming from the hardcore world, where every band vaguely fights “the man”, wants to live free and break down the walls, Power Trip noticeably stands out. Instead of skirting around the fetishization of fighting back, Nightmare Logic focuses in on real oppression felt by many all over the world, whether that’s fighting addiction and the pharmaceutical industry (Waiting Around to Die) or right-wing religious conservatives (Crucifixation). Taking cues from Discharge and Crass in Margaret Thatcher’s UK, Nightmare Logic delivers poignant social information directly into those homes engulfed in the sour turn of global politics towards right-wing agendas ”

Highly recommended!
