Blitzen Trap sprung


DESTROYER Of The Void, the latest album from Blitzen Trapper, left a bit of a hole where previously I had a liking for the group.
After reviewing their previous effort Black River Killer, in comparison this new collection never goes for the jugular.
Instead the psychedelic folk Americana of the group which has garnered so much critical praise, feels like it's been wheeled out for an airing rather than dusted down and improved upon - not that it's bad, they are excellent at their sound, it's just this could have been so much more.
They'll need to find some new ideas next time round, and pack in a few more hooks, or you feel the group will be their own destroyer.
