Power Trip- Live In Seattle 05.28.2018 (Album Review)

Musician: Power Trip
Album Title: Live In Seattle 05.28.2018
Gebnre/ Subgenre: Thrash Metal/ Crossover
Label: Dark Operative
Release Date: June 11, 2020

On June 11, 2020, Texas crossover thrash act Power Trip dropped a really awesome surprise on fans when they released the live album Live In Seattle 05.28.2018. And, I am here to tell you that's a really fun listen!

The performance captured here comes from their tour with Sheer Mag, Red Death, and Fury. The album is mixed and mastered by, Zachary Rippy of Sound Signal Audio and sounds great. Production is crisp and thick, yet keeps the raw concert feel to it.

There are 11 ass-kickers here that come from the band's discography. Among the favorites included are: a crushing and blistering rendition of "Soul Sacrifice", the fucking awesome modern classic that is "Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe)", and the all-out crossover assault of "Manifest Decimation". The album closes off with the super catchy and fun "Crossbreaker".

Power Trip are one of the kings of modern day crossover thrash, on top of being a killer live act. And, Live In Seattle 05.28.2018, wonderfully captures that. With no actual concerts till next year, hopefuly, this is a nice little gift to the fans. At the very least, it is a truly awesome way to tide over us fans of the band, till they give a new, original record.
