Revolver Magazine has opened a keg of top-tier hardcore from Los Angeles craft beer squad TRAPPIST, and their impending debut LP, Ancient Brewing Tactics, due out August 17th via Relapse Records. The new tune comes in the form of a video for the album’s riotous “Victims Of A Bomber Raid.” .
TRAPPIST comments on the video:“For those who don’t know, a ‘bomber’ is slang for a 22oz beer bottle. With the state of the world today, the only solution is to drop as many ‘bombers’ as possible. It’s a form of warfare we can truly get behind. Beers not bombs!”
The band has also been added to Decibel Magazine’s impending inaugural Beer & Metal Fest Los Angeles on December 1st and 2nd. TRAPPIST will perform alongside the likes of The Black Dahlia Murder, Khemmis, Triptykon, Pig Destroyer, Yob, Power Trip, Skeletal Remains, Necrot, Haunt, and more to be announced, with a wide array of craft breweries set to fill the joint with high quality suds.
TRAPPIST’s debut album Ancient Brewing Tactics is due out August 17th on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com and Digital Downloads / Streaming Services .
Formed in 2014 and consisting of scene legends Chris Dodge (Spazz, ex-Infest, ex-Despise You, etc.), Phil Vera (Crom, Despise You, ex-(16)-) and Ryan Harkins (co-owner of popular heavy metal-themed burger joint Grill Em’ All), TRAPPIST have one clear mission, to annihilate the listener with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and hardcore all in the name of BEER. Picture Discharge style punk and Xeroxed WWII photos with bombs replaced by casks, cans, and kegs.
Ancient Brewing Tactics is 21 tracks and 33 minutes of booze-induced chaos, bound to knock you on your ass faster than shotgunning a 15% Russian Imperial Stout. TRAPPIST round out their alcohol-fueled blasts with special guest appearances by Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan), Steve Brooks (Torche), and Blake Harrison (Pig Destroyer). NO CORPORATE BEER.
For the ultimate sensory experience, TRAPPIST has recommended a specific beer pairing for listeners to drink along to each song on the album! “Victim Of A Bomber Raid” is paired with Surly Brewing Darkness Russian Imperial Stout.
