Witchtrap - Evil Strikes Again

Man - you just gotta love the South American blackened thrash scene. There are so many bands from there that simply rule and represent decades of hard work, discipline and underground metal magic. The latest offering from Witchtrap, Evil Strikes Again is just another example of that. This is Colombian blackened thrash at its finest, full of gloriously evil lyrics and over the top imagery. This is exactly what the doctor ordered - the type of evil thrash metal madness that has helped the sub-equatorial scene stay relevant for so long. 

While yes the production borders on the primitive and yes it has been five years since the bands last record, that's gotta be a part of what you signed up for with this band. Witchtrap are known for taking long breaks between record, but they continually come back with that fierce and twisted metal madness. There is a sense of swagger here that shines through on tracks like 'Return To Hell' which helps to elevate the dialog around them and make for some truly special listening. There is a mesmerizing power to what they are crafting and there allegiance to the old school ideas, classic metal bombast and 90s metal evil makes for something addictive. 

Evil Strikes Again is a fun listen and one that nicely leans into a lot of the tropes that helps to make underground metal so fun. Yes there are moments that are a bit cheesy and yes they lean into tropes now and again, but that's part of the joy of this band. They are heavy metal for heavy metals sake. If you can't get behind something that is so boldly over the top, fun and willing to go for the throat, Witchtrap aren't the band for you. But for those of us who love the madness of the underground and want to dive into the pit... look no further!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
