I love this EP from start to finish, the javelin is such a good introduction to what’s to come. I’m looking forward to future projects from fugitive, also that bathory cover song is awesome
Favorite track: Raise The Dead.
This ep has grown like a pustule on the back of my neck since it dropped just like The Exorcist…it just keeps getting better…I’m foaming at the mouth for moreeee…take this shit on the road boyssssss. Way to keep the spirit alive Blake thank you for this
Favorite track: Hell's Half Acre.
Blake Ibanez of Power Trip returns with a new band, FUGITIVE, and the ‘Maniac’ EP, 4 original tracks of the aggressive pit-friendly Thrash he’s known for + a cover of Bathory’s ‘Raise The Dead’.
Joined by Seth Gilmore, Lincoln Mullins, Victor Gutierrez and Andy Messer, Ibanez and co. add a darker rawness to the equation with FUGITIVE as well as a formidably savage Death Metal vocal style, like Power Trip passed through an Obituary meatgrinder.
A short sharp shock of an EP, “Maniac” is a violent introduction across its 17 minute runtime to a future that FUGITIVE is just beginning to write.
