Power Trip - "Executioner's Tax (Swing of The Axe)"

In February, Texan thrash-metal band Power Trip released their excellent sophomore record, Nightmare Logic, via Southern Lord. Now, you can watch the video for the single "Executioner's Tax (Swing of The Axe)."

The video takes grainy, VHS-style live clips of the band and combines it with current-era war footage for an absolutely awesome trip that fully captures the band's sound. It's a brutal onslaught of chugging guitar riffs, howling vocals, and blast-beats that are primed and ready to make your ears bleed. The track feels like an instant power-metal classic from the 80s heyday of thrash and the video is a marvelous counterpart. It's a rage-fueled, surging number that guarantees to unleash some anger from within and it's sure to relieve mounting tension that has built up in the early part of this disorienting year.
