About my show

Amongst all this i play fresh promo tracks alongside lots of local and regional acts & tunes we all love.
My favourite things
Mostly westcountry rock and metal "Shirestyle" but i have been know to bang my head to the likes of The Defiled, Slipknot, 5FDP, Evile etc...

POWER TRIP
Manifest Decimation

Channeling the old-school energy of legendary acts like Cro-Mags, Nuclear Assault and Leeway through modern thrash warfare, Texas crossover battalion POWER TRIP has wrapped up production on their debut LP for Southern Lord and have distributed the details on the beast that is Manifest Decimation.
Amidst massive touring over the past five years, and having unloaded a cache of demos, splits and D.I.Y. releases along the way, the high-powered metallic punk/hardcore attack of Dallas-based POWER TRIP caught the attention of Southern Lord, who brought the crew on-board for the release of their first full-length.

Recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Argyle, Texas, and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon's Gate in Philadelphia, the eight tracks on Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite.

The intense album layout was created by Italian artist Paolo "Madman" Girardi, completing this vile package for delivery via Southern Lord on June 10th, 2013.
