4.0 excellentKenneth E. Rathburn CONTRIBUTOR | February 27th 17

Excellent crossover thrash material, weaving through a short-but-sweet collage of tracks so seamlessly and with such brevity that it begs to be replayed again and again.

Thrash metal that isn't awful, wow! Might more-or-less utilize Evile's philosophy of trying a bunch of styles and never really backtracking, but it's still solid thrash, if only that.

3.4 greatTrey Spencer STAFF | March 1st 17

Old school thrash with some really cool riffs. The vocals could be better and all the songs are roughly similar, but it's still really good.

3.5 greatVoivod STAFF | February 28th 17

Power Trip acquired quite a reputation for themselves with their first album as a crossover thrash allure, so their sophomore album was eagerly awaited; Nightmare Logic is not crossover thrash by the numbers, rather it comes as a pastiche of different US thrash styles (Slayer, Exodus, Metallica etc) in which well-intended groove plays a seminal part. That said, album is devoid of real stand-outs, which makes it an ideal soundtrack for extra-curricular activities, namely weight lifting.

A breath of fresh air in the thrash metal scene. I love this record.

About as solid a crossover thrash album you'll ever hear in this day and age. If you want your thrash to reinvent the wheel, stop reading, because this is not for you. If you want your thrash to be fun, riffy, and have a lot of attitude, then by all means proceed, because Nightmare Logic is definitely for you. It's a bit hard to differentiate the songs from one another when listening to the record, but on a song-by-song basis they're all expertly done crossover with just the right amount of attitude to give it some personality. As far as what's going on during the songs, it's not rocket science: delectable riffs, powerful vocals, speedy and entertaining drumming, and tightly-played bass. These guys may not be world-beaters, but there's no doubt that they know what makes a good crossover album and have no qualms providing that, so if you're a crossover fan, you should guaranteeably enjoy this.

This is a lot better than Vektor

3.5 greatTheManMachine | May 1st 17

Nothin' really beyond the ushe as far as crossover thrash goes, but when it's this solid+spirited who cares? Punchy production that's heavy and never overdone, all-around rippin' performances, short but substantial duration -- not only a terrific hybrid of hardcore and metal, but of fun and tough too. The most these guys go goofball is when they make a trip to the executioner sound like a real hoot and even get you to empathize with him ("Even a killer has to get paid!") -- routinely however they're more on the ol impending doom/mass slaughter/perils-of-mass-complacency train, maybe kinda trite-thrash as well but sounds rather righteous these days and considerably rousing here. And they got ya both having a blast singing along to it and trying your hardest not to run amok without one mention of a party. Also included for interludial apocalyptic reinforcement are some gurgly steamrollers and robo-synths.

3.5 greatcjbizzlebizzle | April 3rd 17

A very refreshing Trash/Crossover album. Power Trip excel in blending in retro thrash elements without it sounding forced or incredibly obvious that they are trying to hommage old school thrash. This approach results in a great blend of metal that captures what the greats were able to accomplish in years past but still sounds like a 2017 effort. Short and sweet at 33 minutes long, the average track length of about 4 minutes allows each song to stand out on its own. They really did a great job with the layout of the tracks here. Aggressive, full of soul and in your face. This album is one that any fan of metal should spin at least once. It will be interesting to see where they go from here and hopefully it isn't another 4 years between albums.

This band sucks. And by that I mean they're basically taking Kreator, Sodom, Metallica, Exodus, etc and rewriting their songs. Nothing to see here. Move along. Vocals are weaker than all the bands mentioned as well.

Nightmare Logic may not bring nothing new to the table, but it recreates old 80's thrash exceptionally well.
