The fourth album from crust/hardcore/sludge/grind outfit Trap Them may contain some of the catchiest songs they’ve ever written—see the smokin' hot riff of “Gift and Gift Unsteady,” reminiscent of Entombed’s classic “Seeing Red” lick—but it’s just as heavy as always. Heavier, even: The grindcore of late album cut “Former Lining Wide the Walls” (two, maybe three, of the 11 song titles make sense, FYI) takes their D-beat-drenched, feedback-laden horror to new levels of extremity. As always, the Kurt Ballou production gives the album the depth and punch that it deserves, making this the band's most dangerous declaration to date. GREG PRATT
