Black Trip is a band wich there have been a bit of a buzz about in the undergroundscene here in Sweden for a while now, the band have release a couple of online demosongs for streaming and have performed a couple of gigs already, but now the bands first single is available for the public.
The band only have two members (as of now anyway) Joseph Tholl (Enforcer) on vocals and Peter Stjärnvind (Krux, ex-Entombed) on guitar, bass and drums. When they play live they have a full line-up. The music is classic heavy metal but still it sounds really fresh and interesting, it’s well played but what makes it the little extra i think is the vocals of Joseph. Listening to this single takes me back to my teenageyears and how fun and exciting it was to find out about new bands and hear new music for the first time, don’t get me wrong here, i still fucking LOVE to search for new and exciting music but there is a feeling about this single that takes me back to those days and that reminds me of why i love this music so much. I have a new favourite band (amongs many other) and they are called Black Trip… can’t wait for the album!
Another really cool thing is that it’s Primitive Art that have released this single, i don’t know if anyone of you remember that label but they released a bunch of really interesting stuff in the mid 90’s like The Coffinshakers, Gehennah, Devil Lee Roth amongst others before they put the label to rest… until now! And this release is a really nice return from that label i must say. The single is released in 166 copies on Red vinyl and 500 copies on Black vinyl.
