You make it ugly and bitter, or you don’t make it at all. The music is there for one reason: to annihilate. There is no room for humor, for novelty, for number painting. There is no room for peace. This is the code that Trap Them lives by. There is only one thing you can do about it:
Trap Them didn’t form in 2002. They simply cracked the hostile cocoon into something more than an idea. It became a living breathing monster, deadset on distortion. Founding members Brian Izzi and Ryan McKenney gave themselves no guidelines, no pre-conceived delusions of takeover, no aspirations of success. They wanted to create music and they wanted it to damage.
Over a decade and seven critically acclaimed releases (three EPs and four LPs) later, Trap Them have never strayed from the path they chose to walk. The music went from heavy to heavier, from dark to darker. Feral. Between every release, weeks and months were spent spreading the black gospel of distortion around the globe.
There may be many questions about Trap Them, but there are only two answers. There is none more ugly and, most certainly, none more bitter.
