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.


Converge / Napalm Death split

Origin: United States | England
Genre: Death metal / Grindcore / Hardcore
Tracks: 4
Label: Deathwish Inc.
 Legendary bands Converge and Napalm Death have come together for a split release, bridging the worlds of personal and politically driven extreme music.

Recorded as part of their new album sessions, Converge offer up the blazing new song “No Light Escapes”. Already a staple of their live set, this whirlwind of an emotional charged song is a soon to be a discordant hardcore/metal anthem for the band. Also on the release, Converge offer a “We Are The World” styled rendition of the influential Entombed classic “Wolverine Blues”. Joining them in tribute is a number of friends including Tomas Lindberg (Disfear, At The Gates, Lock Up), Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Split Cranium), Kevin Baker (APMD, The Hope Conspiracy), Brian Izzi (Trap Them), and more. A new Converge album will surface later in 2012 on Epitaph/Deathwish.

On the flip side, metal pioneers Napalm Death offer up two new aural monsters. First, “Will By Mouth” erupts in classic grind fashion. A buzz of brutal guitars and a crushing blast beat lay a foundation for Barney Greenway’s vicious vocal attack. All of it uniquely bleeding together to paint a vivid picture of social unrest. Also on the release, Napalm Death offer the slower and textural new song “No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal)”. A deeply resonant number that lyrically sheds light on the horrific Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984. Without question, “No Impediment…” is truly a powerful and poignant moment for this legendary band.

I know this have been floating around many blogs, many people was waiting for it and today it’s finally released in physical format. Words from Southern Lord “ second album from Seattle’s barbaric wrecking crew that is BLACK BREATH!  Sentenced to Life is the highly–anticipated follow–up to the band’s raging 2010 debut album, Heavy Breathing. The new album projects an even more vile, metallic sonic attack than it’s predecessor… with a bit less rock and roll swagger and more full–on crushing death metal rage. This is a product of furious creativity jammed into a short span of time, written in the seemingly endless Winter after returning from their November 2010 European tour. Bearing 10 thunderous tracks in just under 33 minutes, Sentenced to Life features such smashing BLACK BREATH ass kickers as Feast of the Damned, Doomed, Forced Into Possession, Home of the Grave and of course the title anthem, Sentenced to Life. The band once again recorded at God City Studios with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, High on Fire), and had the finished product mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side. Easily the band’s most thunderous recording to date, BLACK BREATH sentence every listener to a life of head banging after spinning this motherfucker! “. Recommended.
