Having just completed a massacre of the West Coast of America with Southern Lord labelmates Nails and Xibalba, Dallas, Texas-based Power Trip are just returning home this week as their debut LP Manifest Decimation sees worldwide release via Southern Lord.

Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags and Leeway, Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite.

With nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence, recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia, Manifest Decimation wages war on all in its earshot, much like the Power Trip name has become synonymous with in the wake of their rabid live shows.

To warn the world of its release, a stream of the scorching Manifest Decimation is now available. BE DECIMATED HERE (https://soundcloud.com/earsplit/sets/power-trip-manifest-decimation)

Order Manifest Decimation direct from Southern Lord (http://powertripsl.bandcamp.com/) and stay tuned for new Power Trip updates and in the coming weeks.

Power Trip take you on a journey with Manifest Decimation both musically and lyrically. It’s an excellent debut and whatever you may have heard, the reports of Re-Thrash’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Thrash lives.” – THRASH HITS

This is, quite possibly, the best crossover thrash revival album that’s been made. If you told me it was a long lost album from the mid-80s I’d be inclined to believe you. Exodus, Nuclear Assault, Cro Mags, Hirax and so on. Municipal Waste seemed to kickstart the thrash revival and since then there’s been tons of fairly mediocre bands floating about. Even the best bands just sounded like mere pastiche. Power Trip don’t fall into that trap though. They’ve cracked it. They’ve made a crossover album that is genuinely as good as the original 80s stuff.” – SPOONFUL OF TAR

“…great riffs, catchy shout-along choruses, legit “mosh parts,” and brief ambient excursions that don’t take away from the overall intensity.” – PITCHFORK

“Manifest Decimation is a breath of fresh air in a genre that had been taken to a pretty logical extreme over twenty years ago.” – METAL ASSAULT
