Power Trip have made the consistent delivery of their old-school crossover thrash aggression an art, as evidenced by last year's masterful Nightmare Logic. The Texas quintet, quintessential southerners, have served up a second helping of the good stuff via a new single entitled "Hornet's Nest," released via Adult Swim's also consistent Singles Program.

The message of the song is simple: don't fuck with Power Trip. It also could be about American touchiness and trigger-happiness being over-the-top and harmful for the world. The song doesn't let up at any point, even well after a normal human's face and ears would be mush. It fucking rules and you can listen to "Hornet's Nest" below.
