Trap Them
Trap Them
Trap Them was formed in 2002 in Boston, MA by vocalist/lyricist Ryan McKenney and guitarist Brian Izzi, who shared a love of bands such as Entombed, Black Flag, Nasum, Swans, Neurosis, Darkthrone, and Tragedy. The current lineup is completed by bassist Galen Baudhuin and drummer Brad Fickeisen.

Infamous for their signature hybrid of metal, d-beat punk, and hardcore cloaked in the coveted HM-2 guitar sound, Trap Them is an unstoppable force. Lyrically and sonically, Trap Them’s music is bleak, angry, desperate, and speaks to the darkness inside us all. Every release since 2006 has been recorded by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at God City Studios. Since 2002, Trap Them has released various EPs, 7”s, and 5 critically acclaimed full length albums: SLEEPWELL DECONSTRUCTOR, SEIZURES IN BARREN PRAISE,DARKER HANDCRAFT, BLISSFUCKER, & CROWN FERAL.

The band has toured with the likes of Converge, Napalm Death, Victims, Rotten Sound, Extreme Noise Terror, Full of Hell, Disfear, and Black Breath among others, and have appeared at Maryland Deathfest, Temples Fest, Copenhell, Inferno Fest, Deathwish Fest, and Roadburn.

The latest album, CROWN FERAL was released September 23rd, 2016 on Prosthetic records.
Call of the Void
Call of the Void
Colorado's CALL OF THE VOID produces the aural equivalent of getting repeatedly kicked in the teeth by a ten­-ton, steelforged beast. Originally formed in Boulder as Ironhorse in late 2011, the band plays a furious mix of punk, hardcore and grind. CALL OF THE VOID’s uniquely challenging alloy got the band started off strong ­ the quintet began playing local shows beside heavy­hitters like Gaza and Cattle Decapitation almost immediately, and signed to Relapse in late 2012 before even releasing a single record.

CALL OF THE VOID released its debut album Dragged Down a Dead End Path in early 2013 and quickly received copious praise from publications such as Pitchfork, Metal Hammer, and Invisible Oranges. Upholding its reputation for devastating live performances, the band appeared at Denver Black Sky in 2013 and is scheduled to play Southwest Terror Fest in October 2015 in support of Sleep, Thou, The Body, Bongripper, Graves at Sea, and many others. CALL OF THE VOID has also toured the continental US, appearing alongside Today Is The Day, Eyehategod, The Acacia Strain and Relapse colleagues Weekend Nachos and Primitive Man.

The band dropped its second full­length Ageless in February 2015, raising its already­high profile even further and earning praise from the likes of Metal Hammer, Decibel, New Noise, and MetalSucks. 2015 also saw a lineup change for the band: vocalist Steve Vanica announced his departure from CALL OF THE VOID in July 2015. Said the band, “touring and being in a band is not for everyone and priorities change. We’re saddened to not have Steve behind the mic anymore, but we are excited to still continue on with the same core, making great music.” Yet this change won’t hold CALL OF THE VOID back; the band is retaining all its other members, with guitarist Patrick Alberts set to assume vocal duties. Despite the aggressive negativity of CALL OF THE VOID’s music, the future looks promising for the Colorado quartet: nothingness may beckon, but CALL OF THE VOID has found the perfect balance of temptation and restraint, its nihility teetering on the edges of triumph and despair.
