Witchtrap are a band from Columbia that plays a blackened mixture of thrash and speed metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Evil Strikes Again" which will be released on October 30th by Hells Headbangers.
Demonic voices and a powerful sounding bass guitar sound starts off the album before going into a heavier direction. The songs also bring in a great amount of 80's era thrash and speed metal elements while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing and the vocals are mostly first wave style black metal screams.
The songs also make an old school style sound more modern while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Clean playing can also be heard briefly along with the solos and leads also sticking to more of a retro style as well as one track also introducing back up shouts onto the recording and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction, The album also closes with an instrumental.
Witchtrap plays a musical style that goes back to the 80's era of black, thrash and speed metal and updates the style for the modern era. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Witchcraft, Evilness and Metal themes.
In my opinion Witchtrap are a very great sounding blackened mixture of thrash and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Midnight Rites" "The Devil Is On The Loose" "Death To False Metal" and "Born To Kill". 8 out of 10.
