Lane told you about Trap Them covering tracks from Edge Of Sanity and Hot Snakes for Decibel’s FlexiDisc series and now you can stream both of the covers!

You can check out those covers after the jump, courtesy of MetalSucks.       Continue reading

TT-BlissfuckerOkay, no need to get into semantics, but I fucking adore Trap Them. This band has yet to release anything that hasn’t taken me by storm and the same can easily be said for their forthcoming Blissfucker.

Days Go By: TRAP THEM Complete New Album

Brad FickeisenAt long last, Trap Them have completed their new album. Of course, the band recorded the album at Kurt Ballou’s GodCity studio and I’ll go out and say we will see this album during the first quarter of 2014. That is not concrete, but it sounds about right to me. I am also sure that we can expect nothing but pure awesomeness coming from Trap Them. The band was joined on percussion by former The Red Chord drummer Brad Fickeisen (pictured above).

To get you in the mood (although you should always be in a mood for Trap Them), you can stream the bands fantastic 2011 album Darker Handcraft. Enjoy and prepare your anus.     Continue reading

WeekendplaylistWell, I don’t know about you, Gnargonauts, but I learned a lot of shit this week.

Oh yeah, say hello to our new writer and long-time reader Robby Beck!     Continue reading
