Meatwound Announces New Album “Largo”

Magic Bullet Records today confirms the impending May release of “Largo,” the pummeling new full-length album by Tampa, Florida’s corrosive quartet Meatwound, in addition to issuing a trailer and more info on the LP.

After a successful run in support of the “Addio” debut, Meatwound returns with seven more songs of ungodly sonic devastation under the title “Largo.” While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found intact on this release, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding tracks this time around.

The aural attack was once again captured by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, just south of Largo, Florida, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound. As with the debut, the visuals have once again been executed by former Florida Man Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

Power Trip Releases “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” Video

Texas’ Power Trip just released an official video for “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” as the band continues to tour the planet in support of the “Nightmare Logic” LP, currently torching the West Coast of North America and heading to Europe next.
