Formed in early 2008, Power Trip draw from the sacred texts of classic hardcore, punk, and metal. After the success of their self-titled Lockin’ Out 7”, Power Trip has unleashed their debut LP MANIFEST DECIMATION, out now via Southern Lord Records.
Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags. Exodus, Leeway, Sepultura, and more, Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’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. 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, with nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence. In the wake of their rabid live shows, images of impending doom and destruction have become synonymous with the name POWER TRIP.

IRON REAGAN are no strangers to the fine art of crossover thrash. Comprised of veterans Tony Foresta, Phil Hall, Mark Bronzino, Rob Skotis, and Ryan Parrish, between them they fill, or have filled the ranks of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, Mammoth Grinder, Darkest Hour and numerous other bands. Formed in 2012, the punk-metal quintet quickly released a demo EP followed by their debut full-length, Worse Than Dead via A389 Recordings, and splits with both Exhumed and Toxic Shock. The gang then signed to Relapse Records and released their self-produced sophomore full-length The Tyranny of Will, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) in 2014.
Alongside the release of The Tyranny of Will came a now cult-classic music video for their song “Miserable Failure”, directed by Whitey McConnaughy (Red Fang, ZZ Top), that has catapulted past 1 million views and showcases the band starting a "flash-mosh" on the streets of Portland, OR.

Since 2014, IRON REAGAN have toured the world almost non-stop, with high-caliber acts in the punk, hardcore and metal worlds such as Poison Idea, Napalm Death, Voivod, Skeletonwitch, The Black Dahlia Murder, GWAR, Seven Seconds, Eyehategod, etc. including appearances at Hellfest, Full Terror Assault, Brutal Assault, This is Hardcore, Party San Open Air, and numerous others.

Now in February 2017, IRON REAGAN calls upon thee to join the holy order of thrash on their latest full-length, Crossover Ministry. Comprised of 18 tracks and thirty minutes of frantic, punk-metal fury with relentlessly catchy riffs and irresistible, mosh-ready grooves, Crossover Ministry is a further continuation of the band's punchy, thrash gallops and unique hardcore punk attitude. Once again, Kurt Ballou was called upon to mix the record with guitarist Phil (Landphil) Hall handling the recording. Hear their vicious sermon at a circle pit near you!
