Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags and Leeway, Manifest Decimation hurtles POWER TRIP‘s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. With nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence, recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia, Manifest Decimation wages war on all in its earshot, much like the POWER TRIP name has become synonymous with in the wake of their rabid live shows.

“The thunderous clash of the drums kick in along with the choppy guitar work, it’s execution catalyzing but not yet propelled, drawing to mind naval carriers, F-22’s, and uneased military officials at the hilt, ready for blood… The riff finally kicks back in, rising in tension. An unfazed extraterrestrial force looks onward among the rubble of thousands of dead civilians. 10/10” – American Aftermath

“…by far the most intense batch of songs the band has written thus far… a massive beast of a record that takes no prisoners and will most definitely have you reaching for the repeat button upon it’s end…” – Toxicbreed’s Funhouse

“…great riffs, catchy shout-along choruses, legit “mosh parts,” and brief ambient excursions that don’t take away from the overall intensity.” – Pitchfork

“Although much of this material is steeped in party thrash and hardcore conventions, the reverb adds some distance between the listener and the music, and the muddy production gives each song an evil vibe. The end result is a cavernous, menacing sound that’s heavy on atmosphere but still aggressive.” – Metal Injection

“The quintet’s first LP brandishes muscle at the easiest provocation, bench-pressing power chords like rolls of paper towels and ripping T-shirts through sheer machismo.” – The Austin Chronicle

“Manifest Decimation is a breath of fresh air in a genre that had been taken to a pretty logical extreme over twenty years ago.” – Metal Assault
