Power Trip, Texas's sensational crossover thrash metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
Power Trip was formed in Dallas (Texas) in 2008 by bassist Chris Whetzel, drummer Marcus, vocalist Riley Gale, and guitarists Blake "Rossover" Ibanez, and Nicky Stewart. Their musical style is best described as a blend of hardcore punk (a subgenre of punk rock that began in the late 1970s and is generally faster, harder, and more aggressive than other forms of punk rock), thrash metal (an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression, frequent use of fast percussive beats and low register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding style lead work, and lyrics often dealing with social issues and reproach for The Establishment), speed metal (a sub genre of heavy metal that’s usually faster and more aggressive - but less abrasive and more melodic than thrash metal - and also shows more inclination to virtuoso soloing), and death metal. They've had a stellar career with 2 studio albums, 2 extended plays, 5 demo tapes, and they've performed at Pitchfork Music Festival and South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival. The band currently consists of Riley Gale, Blake Ibanez, Nick Stewart, Chris Whetzel, and drummer Chris Ulsh.
