Seizures in Barren Praise (Explicit)
by Trap Them
Released: Nov 2008
Label: Deathwish Inc.
This second full-length from extreme quartet Trap Them is a dark, epic exercise in complexity. Creating a buzz with their energetic combination of grindcore, hardcore and d-beat metal, Trap Them's lyrics focus on depressing, everyday life in the fictional ghost town of Barren Praise, which adds a darkness and depth to their already intriguing concept. Bludgeoning Kurt Ballou-produced tracks like the spiraling "Flesh and Below" and the hammering "Invertopia / Class Warmth" are vicious enough to cause convulsions.
