Death Trap, the supreme Thrash/ Black assault from the deepest of the underground of Greece formed in the year 2013 has recently had their debut EP out. Titled ‘Full Moon Possession’, the EP contains 3 hellish tracks to blow your head off. This three track EP assault had got released from ‘Weird Face Productions’ in a 7″ vinyl format.

The 9 minutes and 45 seconds record starts with a well-composed intro title Sepulchral Whisper. This 1 minute and 6 seconds intro will definitely give the listeners a vibe about what is coming next.


The titled track ‘Full Moon Possession’ is a superb one. Killer vocal, banging riffs and bass work and hell pounding drums. Throughout the composition there were some shivering clean screams and killer breakdowns like old school thrash attacks of 80’s.

The final track ‘Bestial Worship’ was also a terrific number. Some short but killer guitar solos throughout the song took it to a supreme level.

What I personally think, the kind of sound the Death Trap had come up with does not signify their genre properly. It is more like old school classic thrash rather than Thrash/ Black. I think they should give it a thought.

Overall, ‘Full Moon Possession’ is a terrific release. Death Trap has successfully shown all of their potentials to have a great future ahead. These bangers from Greece really know how to thrash. That sums up all!
