Trap Them by Zach Dilgard
Trap Them

As discussed before, Trap Them are here, just in time to bludgeon Union Pool TONIGHT (Oct 28, 2008) with their Entombed-hardcore-grind hybrid and local Swordswallower-s Tournament in tow. Their new album, Seizures In Barren Praise, drops November 11th on Deathwish.

Trap Them was also on hand this past Saturday (Oct 25th) at the Brooklyn Vegan Day Show at the Knitting Factory along with Rival Schools and many many others. The show my first experience with recently recruited ex-Unearth drummer Mike Justain, who is a force to be reckoned with in both skill and intensity in live performance. Anchored by the short violent outbursts of vocalist Ryan McKenney (when his mic wasn't crapping out on him), a great band just got better, and if you are free tonight and are a fan of heavy music, make sure and swing on down.

Due to some time changes Saturday, Trap Them, unfortunately, played in the Old Office while the main stage featured Made Out of Babies who brought their big guns as well. Made Out Of Babies pics are comin right up. In the meantime the rest of the surly Trap Them evidence is below...

"with the 'hole' in the low as shizzack ceiling."

I am fully in support of spaces like Stolen Sleeves Collective. There used to be shows in the same building next door to the current loft. Those were the best shows in town. The current Johnson space has a super low ceiling as you probably know, kinda claustrophobic. I do not dig that so much as the overall set up isn't very inviting to have people dance to music which leaves an odd aftertaste at punk shows. but maybe that's just me. The construction with the 'upper level' and the open space in the ceiling/floor on the other hand is interesting, especially in conjunction with the low ceiling. hard to explain, especially if english isn't your first language. again, I think what the folks at Stolen Sleeves do is awesome and gets my full support. I am looking forward to hopefully many more great shows there.

I am sorry if my initial posting sounded disrespectful. it wasn't intentional....

No shit. At the end of the day of heavy music, there wasn't much heavy music. With the cancellation of Akimbo and the doublebooking of Trap Them and Made Out of Babies, you only had an hour of heavy music. The first half being the double booked time slot, and then the Vreid set.

Rival Schools are not heavy music. If Civ was made-for-radio punk, then Rival Schools are made-for-radio alternative rock. Bring back Quicksand.
