Trap Them return to the forefront of American extreme music with their latest masterpiece of brutality, "Darker Handcraft," their Prosthetic debut and follow up to 2008's "Seizures In Barren Praise." The band once again recorded their metal, punk, d-beat, hardcore hybrid with Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his God City Studios. Lyrically and sonically, "Darker Handcraft" is as bleak, angry and desperate as ever. The album's artwork was done by similar minded artist, Justin Bartlett, who has also collaborated with Gorgoroth, Sunn 0))) and more.
Trap Them was formed in the early part of the decade in New England, by vocalist/lyricist Ryan McKenney (ex-Backstabbers Inc.) and guitarist Brian Izzi (ex-December Wolves) who shared a love of bands such as Entombed, Black Flag, Nasum, and Tragedy. The lineup is completed by bassist Stephen LaCour and ex-Coliseum drummer Chris Maggio. Though the band has seen several lineup changes, they're more powerful than ever, even though you can find their members scattered in Louisville, Seattle and Austin.
The band has found themselves on the road with the likes of Skeletonwitch, Napalm Death, Victims, Job For A Cowboy and Black Breath among others, and have appeared at Maryland Deathfest and New England Metal and Hardcore Fest. They've released previous efforts on Trash Art!, Deathwish and Southern Lord Records, but "Darker Handcraft" is poised to be their greatest work yet!
Neighbor draws from punk, experimental and underground influences as well as classic soul and country to produce a unique breed of Heavy American Rock&Roll...

From a city of musical innovators, Jar'd Loose present the next
chapter in their hometown's history of heaviness. Jar'd Loose's sound
is all their own — thoroughly rocking yet left-of-center, totally new
yet aligned with the spirit of their musical ancestors, from The Jesus
Lizard to Entombed.
At the core is teeth-clenching momentum — brutish, hellbound
noise-rock driven by Eva and Pete Adam Bialecki's chugging freight
train riffs and Phil Hardman's bare bones beats, built for maximum
headbanging. Leading the charge is frontman Eddie Gobbo with a voice
like no other. Gobbo holds court with a tormented, raspy punk snarl
that's one of a kind — unhinged and real.
Atop this foundation, the band takes startling left turns. Riffs
transcend all expectations, making detours into unforeseen realms —
what starts as a fist-banging dirt rock anthem shape-shists into an
ebullient refrain or a haunting death rock dirge. It's Jar'd Loose's
ability to rock out hellishly then pull the listener into strange new
dimensions that makes Goes to Purgatory one of the most exciting
debuts to hit the streets this year.
