WITCHTRAP - Witching Metal (12" MLP on Oxblood/Grey Swirl Vinyl)
Colombia | Black/Thrash
Extreme headbangability! Their out-of-print mini-album from 2000 now re-issued on LP with improved artwork and layout. This is stripped down, old-school evil thrash with a dash of traditional heavy metal. There are no progressive tendencies or any extreme technicality here, only a palpable, raw passion for playing speedy, simple, and above all else catchy blackened thrash! Undeniably infectious, you WILL be humming these riffs after only a couple spins. Look no further if you are searching for the same feeling as in the early work of: Destruction, Kreator, Assassin, Motorhead, Sodom, Metallica ("Kill 'Em All" era).

10 Fucking Skulls
"Here's a real treat for fans of Satanic Thrash metal ' the very first Witchtrap EP all cleaned up and pressed on CD courtesy of the almighty Hells Headbangers Records. Witchtrap fans, and they are legion, know what to expect here, but the uninitiated should prepare to strap on their bullet belts and THRASH 'tIL DEATH! This is Columbian Cult Metal, this is Sodom-worship, this is the REAL FUCKING DEAL, so THRASH OR DIE MOTHERFUCKERS! Similar in many ways to the debut EPs of both Sodom and Destruction, Witching Metal contains only six short tracks but you will find yourself hitting the 'play'button so many times on this one it might as well be a 2-CD concept album. Essential! (DH)"
