Best of Metal 2017: #2 Power Trip-Nightmare Logic

Sledgehammer. To. The. Face.

That about sums it up on this one.  Couple this album with Body Count’s Bloodlust and you have the perfect compendium of anger albums for 2017.  Nightmare Logic isn’t reinventing the wheel, but what it does, it does extremely fucking well.  The biggest compliment I can give this album is that it could have easily come out in 1986 during the halcyon days of the Bay Area thrash scene and it would have fit in just fine.  This album is going to go down as Power Trip’s Reign in Blood.  It’s short and sweet and it will just decapitate you if you’re not careful.
