Dallas outfit Power Trip are pretty fucking good at what they do. Their approach to metal and hardcore is no-nonsense — no gimmicks or played-out bullshit; just intense riffing and songwriting. Today, the band has announced their next record, Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord), and ignited the firestorm that is "Firing Squad." The song doesn't play around, immediately throwing the listener headfirst into a car crash of guitar and yelled vocals, courtesy of frontman Riley Gale. Old-school thrash and hardcore coalesce perfectly, the band's riff assault slowing down before launching into a sweet two-step section, then a solo that'd warp anyone's brain.
