Concert Recap: Victims, Trap Them, and Black Breath @ the Triple Rock Social Club

Victims live at the Triple Rock

Victims, Trap Them, and Black Breath stormed through Minneapolis yesterday evening with what could easily be called the most vicious hardcore tour making rounds in the U.S. early this summer, and all bands displayed an overwhelming presence despite the underwhelming crowd size (..for better or worse, I’m speculating that a local concert calendar that is more saturated than usual with hardcore shows courtesy of the ENR 15th Anniversary and tightening working class budgets are to blame..). However simply put, Victims were on top of their game, Trap Them proved to be more than worthy of the praise that has been thrown of them by some of extreme noise music’s most respected names (these days Napalm Death and Disfear even cite them as influences, to give you an idea), and Black Breath, while young, introduced the crusty part of my evening with a heavy swagger rocking through their dirty modern hardcore. Personally, I just felt lucky to be one of the few who got to pit it up to the live tornado of chaos contained within the cavernous club in west bank Minneapolis for one night; and lucky for you lazy punks, I brought my camera and captured some guerilla style videos and photos from the show which follow below:

Posted in Concert Dates with tags , , , , on Thursday, April 16, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Even if you have your calendar booked with hardcore shows through May, don’t put your pen away just yet. Extreme Noise Records aren’t the only one bringing stellar hardcore to Minneapolis this spring. On the first of June, the Triple Rock Social Club will showcase Deathwish Inc. recording artists Victims and Trap Them with openers Black Breath for a night of dirty, sweaty hardcore punk from some of the underground’s best bands.

Disembodied reunion, Coalesce, Amebix, Tragedy, The Kids, etc., etc. – and now a Trap Them/Victims co-headlining announcement… if you’re a hardcore punk fan in Minnesota, you can expect to be referring to the Triple Rock as your second home over the course of these next few months.

FREE sampler: Deathwish/Malfunction/Six Feet Under team up for stellar MMIX of modern hardcore

Posted in Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on Friday, March 6, 2009 by Ryan Buege

MMIXDeathwish Inc. continues its trend of being the only hardcore label worth paying attention to; this month they’ve teamed up with the Malfunction and Six Feet Under labels to bring their early 2009 sampler of the best active talent on their roster. In addition to tracks from recently released albums by Trap Them, Victims, Supermachiner, and Carpathian, we’re treated to completely new songs from the likes of the legendary Hope Conspiracy (from their forthcoming True Nilihist EP), Pulling Teeth, Coliseum, Integrity, Narrows, Resurrection, and J. Bannon himself. Plus, there’s many more contributions, including some crazy 4o-sec. Doomriders cover of what sounds to be White Zombie’s “Thunderkiss ’65” that bluntly questions “Do You Like to Slam Dance?”.. Well, since you asked, hell yes!  Why don’t more record labels do this type of thing on a regular basis?

Napalm Death/Trap Them and Have Heart book U.S. tours; fail to schedule MN dates

Posted in Concert Dates with tags , , , , , , , on Friday, February 20, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Sometimes life just isn’t fair.

Yesterday my email box was filled with newsletters from some of the best modern hardcore bands on the plant, with subject lines boldly proclaiming that they had just announced U.S. tour dates. Gleefully I click the one that announces “Napalm Death / Toxic Holocaust / Trap Them” dates (because, if you haven’t heard, all three of these bands have brilliant new albums out), and much to my dismay they’ve decided to leapfrog the Midwest and totally forgot to book a MN date. Really, why would you hit up Milwaukee and Chicago and forget about Minneapolis/St. Paul on your way out west?

On the other hand, at least you can go see Napalm Death grind in support of Enslavement in if you really want to make the journey; our friends in Have Heart have decided to bypass our region entirely, jumping from the the northeast, Michigan, and Canada directly to California and the west coast. It’s too bad this stellar hardcore band forgot about us, but I’m hoping the next message I get from Bridge 9 will have some love for the fans in Minnesota.
