Trap Them are an absolutely brutal metal/hardcore band formed by Ryan McKenney (ex-Backstabbers Inc.) and Brian Izzi (ex-December Wolves). In early 2007, Trap Them released two stunning records on Rhode Island's Trash Art! label, both engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at Godcity Studios. First was their crushing "Self Titled" debut 7"EP. Bringing to mind influences Entombed, Nasum, and even Black Flag, the release was a devastating three song wake up call to the aggressive music community. Just two months later, Trap Them released "Sleepwell Deconstructor", their debut full length on Trash Art!. The album's viciousness is awe inducing, proving that they already deserve to stand among the elite of the extreme metal and hardcore genre.
Easily their heaviest release to date "Seance Prime" was recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at Godcity Studios. "Seance Prime" is a tornado of D-Beat hooks, frantic bursts of speed, and earth shaking dirges. Erasing the line between metal and punk with every unpredictable twist and turn it takes. Once again proving that Trap Them are one of the most relevant and interesting bands in aggressive music scene today.
