Get back to my beloved city of athens, oh man, it was ages, right? And with ages i don't mean paul ages , brother of Todd who destroys the drumkit on the latest Trauma album. Trauma is a hardcore punk band from Portland, Oregon and i remember when billy from crust-demos posted their demo back in 2010. back then i thought that these guys would like just to deliver top finnish (or scandi if you prefer) hardcore. Listening again their tracks i have to say that Trauma is the most close thing to Deathreat. Short, sharp, loud hardcore songs nearly over one minute per song. Billy from Deathreat, From ashes Rise, Tragedy is playing guitar and Todd from Tragedy, Deathreat, His hero is gone is playing the drums and some dude from Final Warning doing the vocals. Songs like "fall in line', "Soma" and "Fear us now" are truly unique - not that they re-inventing the wheel but - in a style of destructive, catchy and in your face punk with a touch of true threat floating around. I'm glad that the above mentioned Tragedy members can play first class punk (still..) and the latest tragedy album is just a bad parenthesis (or i hope....). Buy it wherever you see it. It really worths it.
