Trap Them – Blissfucker


Bandcamp | Facebook | Prosthetic Records

Trap Them es de las pioneras en tocar hardcore/crust influenciado por death-metal sueco con toques d-beat, o algo así como blackenedarkd-beatcrusthardcore… Mis ojos lloran sangre después de leer esa etiqueta. Es importante tener en mente que Trap Them fue de las primeras en tocar este estilo de musica. Dejen de comparar al papa con los hijos.

Después del aclamado Darker Handcraft, pasaron tres largos años y una lista (muy larga) de bandas que tenían de referencia a Trap Them. Para mi algunas habían pasado a ser mis nuevos dealers de este tipo de musica, porque había rumores que Trap Them ya no existía, que odiaban a sus fieles seguidores y jamas editarían nuevas grabaciones, gracias a todos los punks que descargan musica ilegalmente. Solo eran rumores.

Blissfucker hizo que valiera la pena esperar, algunas veces toca esperar demasiado, demasiado es negativo, y lo único negativo de Trap Them sucedió en el 2008 cuando iban a tocar en Tijuana con Extreme Noise Terror y no tocaron. Esa es otra historia.  Blissfucker es el álbum que te hará golpear al vecino estúpido que viste formal diario, tiene un Mustang 2012 y pasa escuchando Metallica (no tengo nada contra ellos) a todo volumen, hace rugir el motor v8 frente a tu casa y se cree narcotraficante.

No esperaba este álbum, no tenia conocimiento y vaya sorpresa. Siento como si hubiera re-descubierto Sleepwell Deconstructor, versión remasterizada con nuevos arreglos. Asi me sentí al escucharlo por primera vez.  Será porque me transmite la misma energía. Mejor escuchen el disco completo y no crean en mi comparación.  Altamente recomendado.

Have been listening to this record a few times today and i totally get into this band, haven’t heard before them and the more i know about the band i ask myself why i never give them a listen… better late than ever. So, as some of you know they recently did a split with Republic of Dreams and they have been releasing records since 2010, to date some says this are their best recordings so far, i’m still curious to listen their past recordings, anyway, have been listening this record for almost four times.

The side A starts with a sampler and then a metal riff that turns into an insane grindcore slot intoxicated of d-beat and metal, least but not least are the vocals, she doesn’t follow any path, her vocals are clean sometimes, most time transmitting her angry feelings. That’s not all about this record, on side B they also throw to the mix some sludgy down-tempo riffages , along other sounds like hardcore or screamo; it’s interesting how each song has their own touch and makes this album different from others. ¨We aren’t afraid to experiment with new sounds and ideas, but not so much that we lose sight of what we are predominantly: punks playing really fast.”.

Cloud Rat is not the only three piece band, but these guys make a complete sound with one guitar, without bass, only drums played really heavy. The lp is already out and you can order your copy in America here:  Europe:

I had some time i don’t listen to this kind of stuff,actually i heard before of this band, but, i don’t get much into them. Now, with Black Sun/Fake Gold they really catch my attention with these eleven songs of pure d-beat with that rock and roll feeling but sounding heavy with the hardcore thing. These band shares two members of Monarch[French Doomers], if you like bands like Totalitär, Discharge and Anti-Cimex you should give a listen to this record.

All Pigs Must Die – All Pigs Must Die

Chaotic Hardcore|D-Beat|Metal

Shirts & Destroy



I saw this at many blogs during the past month and today i decided to download it, fuck…the first listen is like a kick in the nuts, they have people from Converge,The Hope Conspiracy and Bloodhorse, but the main fact is the music not the members, all the time they keep that metallic riffs and the d-beat going on here and there, each song sounds sick, if you have free time go to their myspace and read their about them. I just hope this band play some live shows and don’t be just a jam band. If you haven’t hear this, you should probably download it now.
