TRAP THEM Release Fan-Filmed Live Footage

Hailed by Revolver as their “most dangerous declaration to date…contain(ing) some of the catchiest songs they’ve ever written,” TRAP THEM‘s long-awaited sophomore Prosthetic release “Blissfucker” is available now! A limited-edition clear vinyl variant is now available at independent record shops throughout America, so make sure to check your local shop to scoop one up before they’re gone! A list of participating stores can be found at this location.


Last week, the crust/punk/hardcore quartet performed live at the annual Copenhell Fest in Denmark. You can view a fan-filmed clip of TRAP THEM performing their new song “Lungrunners” from the festival below:

Having teamed up once again with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Skeletonwitch) — who previously recorded the band’s groundbreaking 2011 release “Darker Handcraft” — TRAP THEM founders Ryan McKenney (vocals) and Brian Izzi (guitars) recorded “Blissfucker” at Godcity Studios with the addition of Brad Fickiesen (drums) and Galen Baudhuin (bass). “Blissfucker” contains 45 minutes of unrestrained, unmedicated, unapologetic displays of depression, desperation and blasphemy.

TRAP THEM will perform select dates along the East Coast over the summer, including both nights of this year’s Deathwish Fest alongside Converge. A full list of appearances can be found below:

RAMMING SPEED Streaming New Album

In advance of the release of their Prosthetic debut Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die, Boston thrashers RAMMING SPEED teamed up with Terrorizer Magazine to stream the new album in its entirety! You can listen to it right hereLabeled “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal” (Noisecreep), RAMMING SPEED are currently out on the road with Valient Thorr and Gypsyhawk and previously toured alongside acts such as 3 Inches of Blood, Goatwhore, Trap Them, Holy Grail, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, Torche, Phobia, Black Tusk and Saviours.

 Recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Black Breath, Kvelertak) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatwright (Tragedy, Sleep, High On Fire), Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die memorably combines the charging rhythms of d-beat punk and the aggression of thrash with NWOBHM-worthy guitar harmonies and grind’s blinding speed.
