Power Trip are straight-up old-school thrash metal. It’s powerful and has planet-sized cajones. Although their sound is infused with subtle modern elements, it’s still hard to believe that they’ve only been around for a decade.
To help the band celebrate, Dark Operative Records has released (April 27th) Power Trip’s Opening Fire: 2008-2014, which is a complete collection of the band’s earliest non-LP output.
Opening Fire: 2008-2014 documents Power Trip’s self-titled 7”, This World (from The Extermination Vol: II LP compilation on Flatspot Records), Hammer of Doubt (2010 version from America’s Hardcore LP compilation on Triple B Records), and the entirety of The Armageddon Blues Sessions. All tracks have been lovingly remastered by the band’s longtime producer, Arthur Rizk, with the release being rounded out by stunning artwork from Portland illustrator, Matt Stikker.
Opening Fire: 2008-2014 is being offered initially via all streaming and digital service providers to mark the launch of Power Trip’s North American headlining tour with Sheer Mag, Fury, and Red Death. Digital orders for Opening Fire: 2008-2014 can be made here. LP, CD, and cassette versions are currently in production and will be available in the coming weeks.
