Trap Them - darker handcraft
Seattle's TRAP THEM return to the forefront of American extreme music with their latest masterpiece of brutality, "Darker Handcraft," their Prosthetic debut and follow up to 2008's "Seizures In Barren Praise" on Deathwish Records. The band once again recorded their metal, punk, d-beat, hardcore hybrid with Converge guitarist , Kurt Ballou at his God City Studios. Lyrically and sonically, "Darker Handcraft" is as bleak, angry and desperate as ever. The album's artwork was done by similar minded artist, Justin Bartlett, who has also collaborated with Trap Them, as well as Gorgoroth and Sunn 0))) and more. TRAP THEM was formed in the early part of the decade in New England, by vocalist/lyricist Ryan McKenney (ex-Backstabbers Inc.) and guitarist Brian Izzi (ex-December Wolves) who shared a love of bands such as Entombed, Black Flag, Nasum, and Tragedy. The lineup is completed by bassist Stephen LaCour and ex-Coliseum drummer Chris Maggio. Though the band has seen several lineup changes, they're more powerful than ever, even though you can find their members scattered in Louisville, Seattle and Austin. The band has found themselves on the road with the likes of Skeletonwitch, Napalm Death, Victims, Job For A Cowboy, Black Breath, among others, and have appeared at Maryland Deathfest and New England Metal and Hardcore Fest. They've previously released colossal cds and vinyls on Trash Art!, Deathwish and Southern Lord Records. And to coincide with the release of "Darker Handcraft", TRAP THEM will return to Europe for a full tour in April with Rotten Sound, Gaza, Kandidate and Haust.
