Crossover thrashers Power Trip seem forged especially for RAM. 65% Metal. 35% Hardcore. 5% pro wrasslin'. Right before the Trippers hit the road they took the time to headline the Manitoba Metalfest giving us the opportunity for a long overdue chat. Vox/mainman Riley Gale was eager to talk record 2.5 (??) "Opening Fire 2008 -2014", their SOLD OUT (!!) Decibel cover, and the band's musical involvement with the WWE. On 4/20 no less. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we go over the Lamb Of God stolen axe incident, the Cro Mags lawsuit sitch, and producer Rick Rubin's controversial "Slayer/black metal" statement. Musically we crank some Power Trip, new tunes from Tanith, Destrage, Windswept, Amygdala, some Necrophobic, and introduce (another Trip) in Canadian punkers Guilt Trip in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!
