Power Trip release “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” video

Power Trip released one of the year’s best metal albums (thus far) with Nightmare Logic, which is out now via Southern Lord. Even better than their albums, though, is their live show. I last caught the band in Austin earlier this month during SXSW, where they played Townsquare HQ, and it was the best set I saw that whole week. They’ve now got a video for “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe),” a highlight of their new album and their current live set, and the Andy Capper-directed video combines war footage with clips of a typically wild Power Trip show (it was shot in Denton in February). It’s a very fitting combo, as you can see for yourself below.

A week after that show during SXSW, Power Trip played Austin again at the Mohawk. A pic of the insanity is above. The band is currently on a West Coast tour with Destruction Unit, who are also one of the best live bands in underground rock right now. If that tour comes near you, don’t miss it. After that, they’ll tour Europe with the legendary Napalm Death. All dates are listed below.
