Fugitive - Maniac LP


Fugitive - Maniac LP 

20 Buck Spin 

Blake Ibanez of Power Trip returns with a new band, FUGITIVE, and the ‘Maniac’ EP, 4 original tracks of the aggressive pit detonation Thrash he’s known for in Power Trip, with an even rawer and looser ferocity. A cover of the legendary Bathory’s ‘Raise The Dead’ rounds out the succinctly serrated 5 track debut.

Joined by Seth Gilmore (Skourge), Lincoln Mullins (Creeping Death), Victor Gutierrez and Andy Messer, Ibanez and co. cohere in intensely violent crossover fashion with FUGITIVE; a product of long earned experience in the studio and on the stage. A savage Death Metal vocal style, like Power Trip passed through an Obituary meatgrinder, solidifies ‘Maniac’ with the heaviness of a head hitting concrete. 

A short sharp shock of an EP, “Maniac” is a fierce introduction across its 17 minute runtime to a future that FUGITIVE is just beginning to write and a reminder that Texas heat remains a steadily potent force in underground metal and hardcore.
