Seizures In Barren Praise


If you only read indie rock websites, you might think Fucked Up put out the only good punk/hardcore record of 2008. Yet in truth, this year proved to be a stellar one for heavy indie music across the board, with bands like These Arms Are Snakes, Torche, Genghis Tron, Psycroptic, The Sword and Krallice all putting out records worthy of making any best of 2008 lists. The one that seemed to stay in our rotation the longest was Seizures In Barren Praise by Trap Them.

Maybe it's because they embody everything we love about the genre. Primarily considered a thrash/hardcore band, Trap Them has the ability to slow it down to a sludge or keep your fists pumping with sing along chants. It's no secret they're a band on the rise, but with this Kurt Ballou-engineered gem, Trap Them has established themselves as one of the leaders of the hardcore pack.
