Power Trip have been extremely busy this year, from devastating the stage at Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festival high energy performance to taking home the Metal Song Of The Year award for “Executioner’s Axe” at the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards. The accolades continue as Power Trip’s album ‘Nightmare Logic’ has just been named number 1 of Loudwire’s 25 Best Metal Albums of 2017 list. Whether you're a classic metal purist or a more open-minded fan of genre-melding and newer sub-genres of heaviness such as djent or deathcore, 2017 has delivered some serious talent across the board. Our Dallas thrasher’s sit atop that list
You can see the entire list here, and listen to Power Trip’s ‘Nightmare Logic’ Below.

1. Power Trip, 'Nightmare Logic'
Power Trip are the breakout metal band of 2017, armed with razor tight, pit-happy new age thrash hymns found within ‘Nightmare Logic.’ Stripping away any touch of excess (while resurrecting dive bomb solos), the Texas natives pared down cuts like “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” and the title track to perfect mid-tempo juggernauts, dealing death as they upped the intensity on “Soul Sacrifice,” “Firing Squad” and others. Arthur Rizk’s production is entrenched in the old school with raw tones and organic drum sounds that bring the messages condemning power, corruption and greed to the street level. This year belongs to Power Trip and as they boldly declared at the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards, “Watch out old timers, we’re here.”
