Trap Them - Sleepwell Deconstructor

Trap Them may have a number of musicians from other not-so-well-known groups present in their line-up, but that won't stop them from putting most metal fans in the position of a deer in headlights. A mucky mess of noisy stabs and shrill noise, their Kurt Ballou-produced "Sleepwell Desconstructor" routinely grinds, thrashes and vomits forth enough crusty blood to make sure aural sanitization will be necessary afterwards.

While the roots and similarities to other bands do run far deeper, Trap Them more often than not sound like a bastardized Converge/Cursed split gone wrong (or right.) Unrelenting songs flush with antagonistically screamed vocals, feverishly distorted guitars and a drumkit being put through the paces are all generally included within each track. Also present is the kind of barren stage sweat soaked venom usually practiced by homicidal sociopaths.

True this is all pretty much par for the course and at around a minute and a half a song it's the palpable desperation and conviction that makes the biggest impact. The churning musicianship doesn't hurt either, but with such a frenetic onslaught and hell-bent momentum this is niche music that will either encourage one to sweat blood and bash themselves into walls or disown their ears.

(3.5 / 5)
