Interview

Power Trip Frontman Riley Gale On Thrash, Trump And Gerrymandering

There are many reasons to still be a metal fan, no matter how long you've been around the scene or the genre. From seeing reunions from bands you'd thought would never be in the same room again to visiting festivals across the globe. The main reason however, will always be the discovery of new and up and coming bands. One of the groups which has captured the attention of headbangers of all ages the world over is Power Trip, the crossover thrash quintet from Dallas, Texas. The band has been going from strength to strength in recent years, particularly since the release of their second album, "Nightmare Logic" last year.

At this year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, the band took to the main stage on Saturday morning and blew the crowd away with their ferocious brand of thrash. Afterwards, I had the pleasure of meeting up with vocalist Riley Gale to talk about the band's growing success, their home state of Texas and the dangers of gerrymandering in the modern political climate. You can watch the chat in full below.
