Trapped Under Ice - Big Kiss Goodnight Cover

Next year's RS Impericon Expo Tour stars put out a blinder...

There are plenty of bands out there pedalling the meat-and-potatoes, beatdown-heavy hardcore, but perfecting it is a harder science than people give credit for. Trapped Under Ice’s latest slab of urban hardcore is as close to perfection as anyone’s come for a while. For fans of people who like throwing elbows and getting a bit grimy, ‘Big Kiss Goodnight’ is as consistent and tough a body of work as the genre has ever thrown up. A hybrid of Hatebreed’s punishing sound, the odd Biohazard throwback and a whole shitload of gangsta swagger, ‘Pleased To Meet You’, ‘Draw The Line’ and ‘Born To Die’ are anthems tailor-made for a party-hungry pit to get buck wild to. ‘Big Kiss Goodnight’ is one of the best hardcore albums of the year, period.
