Power Trip guitarist Blake Ibanez issues an apology for calling someone a terrorist

Blake Ibanez

Recently a pair of screenshots started circulating on Instagram, then spreading across social media, showing Power Trip guitarist Blake Ibanez (also a member of Fugitive) responding to someone on the platform in a direct message saying, "You're a terrorist." 

What this was in response to was unclear, since the screenshot of the message reads, "Post unavailable." 

The second page of the post provided with the screenshot said:

For context on last slide on Blake. Foos a joke. Good job on being an idiot as your band reforms.

This continued with a list of demands from a member of the NYC punk community to help keep Zionism out of their scene due to Ibanez's alleged advocacy for Palestinian harassment. It read:

Keep Zionism out of our scene.

We in the NYC punk scene have worked tirelessly to use our community to bring awareness to, and advocate for, the Palestinian people who are being systematically exterminated, displaced, and betrayed by Israel and the United States.

We have become aware that a member of the influential Texas band Power Trip not only espouses harmful Zionist ideology, but has been advocating Palestinian harassment in the punk community. They play in this band as well as the venues booking them have been made aware of the situation yet have done nothing. As such, it is up to us to use our collective voice and demand the NYC punk community stay safe and fascist-free for everyone.

We are calling on Dan D., who we trust is a comrade to our movement, to revoke the Power Trip booking at Knockdown Center so long as fascist ideology remains present in the band. We are also calling on the bands playing with Power Trip - Ceremony, Frozen Soul, Public Acid, and the final agony to call this out and refuse unless members of Power Trip (PowertripTX) emphatically check Blake Ibanez (@blakeibanez who is also a member of @fugitive_tx) and make a statement addressing the matter.

Should they play, a Palestinian flag and a statement condemning Zionism must be part of the show.

All proceeds must be donated to the Palestinian relief effort.

In response to this, Ibanez issued a public statement acknowledging that the response he gave was an emotional one and extended an apology to those affected, stating:

Hey everyone, 

First and foremost, the most important thing about what l am about to say is: Free Palestine and Permanent Ceasefire now. 

I wanted to take a moment to address claims that have been made about my beliefs on Israel and Zionism, and my actions following October 7th. 

I grew up in a Jewish household in Dallas and have had family and friends living in Israel, a place I have visited before. As the events of October 7th unfolded, a person who I don't know responded to something I had reposted regarding the severity of the attacks in Israel. In my emotional state it felt antagonizing, and I responded by calling them a word that l should not have. 

I can't speak to other people's experiences, but i understand how much weight words can hold, and know that in that moment it must have felt hurtful, dismissive and disappointing to see. I have since reached out to that individual to apologize directly, but want to do so publicly here too. I apologize for any pain, anger or confusion that my posts may have caused to friends that follow me, or fans of my bands that follow me. I realize that I have a platform and ideally I would use it only for amplifying worthy causes and beliefs. On that day I failed, and I am truly sorry. 

I have learned a lot since then, and understand that it is entirely possible to care about the well being of my family and friends and also support a Free Palestine. 

I have never endorsed the actions in response to what occurred that day in Israel and I have never been in support of the occupation. I once again deeply hope for an immediate ceasefire and for the safety and freedom of all Palestenians. 

I appreciate the knowledge that I have gained throughout this experience and am eager to do whatever I can to earn the trust back of those I have let down. 

I have always been proud of what my bands stand for. In that moment, however, I let my bandmates down as well and what I posted from my personal account in no way reflects their personal views or those of the band as a whole. It is nothing that we have ever collectively or individually stood for. It is easy for a band's messages to get blurred as they grow and move into different scenes, but Power Trip never wavered in championing the rights of the oppressed. That was true then, and it is true now. 

Once again, I am truly sorry for the mistake that I made. If anyone has more questions or concerns about it I am here to talk and continue to learn. I appreciate the high standard that the community I am a part of holds itself to, and will strive to hold myself to that same standard always as well.

Wow. Big mistake. You appologized and now whatever career you had is done. You should have simply ignored them - and in a few days it'd have been forgotten. Now they own you. You never give these people attention. Any attention fuels them to continue to bring up your name. Ridiculous demands to fly a flag of an unofficial state and religion you don't belong to just so you can play and earn money is disgusting. Next time take my advice and ignore them - you can't appease these people nor are they interested in mutual respect

anonymous 80 days ago

This whole situation is laughable and pathetic.

109 countries can't all be wrong. Sure they can. 109 countries with agendas and ties to Russia, Iran, and Middle East. Does the USA or Russia or China bow down because 109 countries cried? Of course not. If you knew what you were doing was right and 109 corrupt disagreed with you, would you bow down? U probably would. How come these 109 countries don't make a peep about all the innocents dying in Yemen or Sudan which each having exponentially more child casualties into the 6 figures. They don't make a peep because those 109 countries turn a blind eye to muslim on muslim violence

Imagine one day in the future when ppl look back on the conflict and wonder how utterly stupid massive amounts of so called "educated" people were. Every single piece of information that comes out of Gaza goes through Hamas. A criminal, murderous, extremist religious sect who has openly stated their intent to manipulate Western media as a modus operandi is providing you statistics. They must be laughing at how easy marks you people are. It's actually unprecedented, the idiocy. Imagine the mafia giving you statistics

anonymous 80 days ago

Hey remember the Arab Springs Protests/ riots where millions of Muslims marched for freedom and democracy about 10 years ago that engulfed the entire Middle East? Where 60 000 Muslims were slaughtered simply for demanding muslim leaders stop robbing them blind and ensuring century after century of poverty? No I didn't think you did. The populations are highly conditioned for submission from millenia of brutal suppression. You say 109 countries but you're really saying 109 governments who aren't even backed by their people.

anonymous 80 days ago

SWING OF THE GOO

anonymous 80 days ago

The intercept? Lol Yes there is plenty of evidence. It's just too horrible to release the videos publically. Also because sixkos like you would celebrate the videos. That's why they were shown in limited scale in controlled environments. You can continue to delude yourself for all I care. I'm well aware you can't be convinced to change your opinion even if presented with undeniable truth. You'd say oh it's AI or something like that. I'll leave you with a parting message though coward. Gazans will never see victory. Even if Israel disappeared somehow over night, nothing would change. They'll always be in poverty and despair at the hands of their leaders who rob them blind. According to WHO 50% of Palestinian marriages are inbred. How you going to pull out of poverty? 8, 9, 10 kids - half born with severe genetic mutations. No real health infrastructure to accommodate large families, let alone families of inbred children with severe disability. Good luck.

anonymous 80 days ago

Jews do not get kicked out of every country they lived in. You're simply an idiot. It's ironic you are saying I'm missing the point when you don't have one. How gullible are you?? No jew wants to live in some broke poverty infested inbred shitehole get real

"Yes there is plenty of evidence. It's just too horrible to release the videos publically." There's so much evidence, we just can't show it, and nobody who investigates it can find it. source: trust me bro

Muslims live in terrible poverty across the middle east. They are robbed blind and left with stone age conditions despite being mineral / oil rich. Gaza is a garbage dump 50% of marriages are inbred. No muslim country will even take a single Palestinian refugee

No. They did show it - across the world in specific conditions as well as to any world leader that expressed concern. Maybe learn to read? You dont release insanely violent gang r*pe torture to the general public you moron. I don't know maybe they do that over in Yemen or some shite? Truly an idiot. I didn't tell you / ask you to believe anything. I'm well aware you are not willing to accept truth like so many other willfully ignorant. You probably think Joe Biden stole the election

The fact you think a group of violent extremists who are taught to hate from childhood didn't sexually assault a single female in a lightning fast attack meant to inflict as much damage as possible before pulling out proves you have no concept of what happens in violent conflicts the world over. Of course they r*ped. Who are you kidding? The main hamas spokesman "Ghazi Hamad" after the first few weeks after Oct 7th even admitted on air after being caught off guard in a BBC interview that "these acts on civilians are regrettable, our men got caught up in the musical festival. We did not anticipate this being in our way. They were ordered to attack only soldiers or adult men, not the women or the children. This music festival threw our men into chaos and confusion" He then paused for a long minute before ripping off his mic and storming out "this interview is over!" I will own you. My knowledge is unsurpassed. I'm prepared to dissect you.

The NY times did not admit it was BS. Keep trying though . If I have the time I will make sure to continue to own you. Perhaps in an OPINION article someone may have expressed doubt at the LEVEL of sexual violence. Hence OPINION. Only an idiot would actually think there was not a single r*pe

"lightning fast attack meant to inflict as much damage as possible before pulling out proves you have no concept of what happens in violent conflicts the world over." Yeah man, everyone knows when you're engaging in a surprise attack combat mission where you're trying to disable response systems and take as many hostages as possible before reinforcement shows up you take a break f*ck some inbred hassid in the middle of enemy territory. Are you retarded? Again, if there's so much evidence why don't they show it? They'll walk it back like the did the 40 beheaded babies, the babies in ovens, and even the overall casualty numbers. And they'll try to hide it just like they've tried to hide that a significant amount of the Israeli casualties came from friendly fire because it's a military of incompetent cowards. Cant even take a piece of land the size of Philly after 4 months

Barely any Palestinian innocents have died. Who dictates that number? Hamas. What is Hamas? A criminal, violent, extremist religious group who's declaration to mislead and manipulate world media, particularly western media(easy marks) into sympathy for them. The Hamas Dr. Who counts the dead has admitted combatants are included in the death toll. Call them terrorists or freedom fighters, it doesn't change that it's unheard of to place dead innocents with dead combatants. This is against international law and absolutely no country practices this utter disrespect to dead innocents. Once you pick up a weapon and intend to use it you are no longer legally a civilian. So let's take 30 000 dead. Now minus all the dead combatants and that will be your real number - likely around 5000 which is peanuts when it comes to war. Yemen has hundreds of thousands dead - 70% being children. In Sudan a child dies every 2 hours. Not a peep from any of you

You can find the worst videos imaginable from every single modern conflict including this one.

"Indeed, Gale – who had frequently made no bones about his dislike of Trumpian economics – was also keen to designate Power Trip a safe haven for all. As he put it in an 2017 interview: "We're political in a sort of morally relativistic way where if someone is wearing a Power Trip shirt, you can probably assume that that person isn't like some weird, racist, meathead piece of shit – hopefully … We try to make it pretty clear that we might all be white males, but this is not a band for white males to enjoy and be dumb rednecks." For Gale, the power and energy of metal was not for macho posturing, but a means for honest release."

Infernus here, aka Roger Tiegs, founder of Gorgoroth. Blake Ibanez's apology sickens me. A true disciple of darkness wouldn't grovel before the opinions of mortals. Free Palestine? A ceasefire? These pleas show weakness. Gorgoroth's strength lies in upholding darkness and chaos, not appeasing the masses. Ibanez's attempt to reconcile reeks of submission. A true disciple knows no remorse. Let the flames engulf those who question Gorgoroth's sovereignty. Ibanez's betrayal stains our legacy. Let his cowardice serve as a warning. We are the harbingers of chaos, and none shall stand in our way. 🔥

Craig Golias here, the beast of bodybuilding. I may not dabble in black metal, but I know a thing or two about standing your ground. Blake Ibanez's response is a textbook example of backpedaling. Real men don't apologize for speaking their minds. If you're going to throw shade, own it. I respect Ibanez's passion, but he needs to toughen up. In the world of heavy metal, weakness is a death sentence. Power Trip needs to remember their roots and stop bending to the will of the mob. Stay true to your beliefs, no matter the consequences. 💪🤘

Todd Jones here, representing the hardcore community. I commend Blake Ibanez for owning up to his mistake and offering a sincere apology. It takes courage to admit when you've misspoken, and even more so to publicly acknowledge it. We all make errors in the heat of the moment, but it's how we handle them that defines our character. Blake's commitment to learning and growing from this experience is admirable. Let's focus on unity within the scene and continue advocating for important causes like Palestine. Respect to Blake for setting a positive example. Hardcore for life!

Mortiis here, from the depths of darkness. While the drama of mortals may amuse some, I find it to be inconsequential in the grand scheme of eternity. Let them bicker and squabble over their earthly concerns; I am preoccupied with matters far beyond their comprehension. The energies of the universe flow through me, and I have no time for the petty grievances of mere mortals. Let Blake Ibanez and his ilk sort out their own affairs while I continue my eternal quest for power and dominion.

Cornel West here, philosopher and scholar. In times of conflict and misunderstanding, it's essential to seek understanding and empathy. While emotions run high, we must remember the humanity within us all. Let us engage in dialogue, not discord, to bridge divides and foster mutual respect. Blake Ibanez's apology reflects growth and accountability, signaling a path toward reconciliation. Let us support one another on the journey toward justice and unity. Peace and solidarity to all.

Chuck Schuldiner's spectral presence here, embodying the essence of metal's purity. In the cacophony of controversy, let us not lose sight of the music's power to unite and inspire. While tensions flare, remember the universal language of heavy metal, transcending borders and beliefs. Blake's apology is a step towards harmony, echoing the ethos of honesty and redemption that defines our genre. Let the riff reign supreme, forging bonds stronger than steel.

Hey Lambgoat crew, Katarina Economou of Escuela Grind here! 😊 Just caught wind of the Blake Ibanez situation, and it's got my head spinning. Drama seems to follow musicians like a shadow, huh? While I don't know the full story, I hope both sides can find common ground and move forward positively. Sending good vibes from Sandals Jamaica! 🏖️✌️
