Electric Bear Trap are a band from Illinois that plays a mixture of grindcore, thrash metal and punk and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "The Scrawny".
Drum beats, punk rock style vocals and melodic riffing starts off the ep with the following track being in whale sounds, growls and heavier guitars while the last track starts off with spoken word samples before going into a more fast direction that combines grindcore and punk together and all 3 of the tracks are very short in length with the last track being the only song that is longer than a minute and you can hear some melodic thrash in the guitar riffing on the last song.
Electric Bear Trap focus more on a comical musical direction while remaining heavy at the same time, the production sounds very heavy while the lyrics cover humorous and demented themes.
In my opinion Electric Bear Trap are a very decent sounding mixture of grindcore, thrash and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "I.N.R.I.T.C". 7/5 out of 10.
