TRAP THEM - SEANCE PRIME CD (DE166)
The cover has a skull on the front cover, but hell talk about an eerie beauty it has to it. Coupled with mixture of colours - black, white, green, purple (very Misfits) - really nice. I can only imagine a vinyl version of this (if it exists) being totally stunning. And yes, the music is equally and beautifully devastating as they artwork. 'Seance Prime' is a thunderbolt of articulated noise, that will knock you down, again and again while you breathlessly try to fight a losing battle. Give up, just let TRAP THEM shroud you in a blanket of some of the fericious and best combination of crust, d-beat, metal, hardcore, noise you are going to hear in a long time. Recorded on an 8 track analog tape, definitely adds an organic sound to it, which definitely draws you into the realness of it all. Awesome sound quality, layout, artwork etc. The lyrics are like the continuation of a story, with an apocalyptic theme riding through it. Their 3rd release, and I for one hope it won't be their last.
