The marketed live performance featured a headlining efficiency by Fugitive, a band that includes Power Trip guitarist Blake Ibanez and Scourge vocalist Seth Gilmore. After Fugitive performed their preliminary set, Ibanez and Gilmore remained onstage, and had been joined by Power Trip members Nick Stewart (guitar), Chris Whetzel (bass), and Chris Ulsh (drums).
With Gilmore on vocals, they performed 5 Power Trip songs, together with “Soul Sacrifice,” “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe),” “Hornet’s Nest,” “Manifest Decimation,” and “Crucifixation.”
The poster for the present had talked about a “particular visitor,” however the efficiency should have been a welcome shock for anybody in attendance. Footage from the gig reveals the followers going completely wild throughout the mini Power Trip set.
Gale died in August 2020 on the younger age of 34. At the time, Power Trip had been one of the acclaimed steel bands to emerge over the earlier decade, placing a contemporary spin on thrash steel.
In a March 2021 interview, Ibanez stated, “We do wish to proceed to play music collectively; we simply should not positive what that appears like right now.”
It is unclear if the one-off gig will result in extra reveals with Gilmore as vocalist or if the band will formally reunite beneath the title Power Trip. For now, see footage of the shock efficiency under.
