Speedtrap – Straight Shooter

Release date: 2015Sept11
Label: Svart Records
Rating: 3.5/5

Lappenranta, Finland’s Speedtrap are heavily influenced by speed metal and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). “No Glory Found” hits raw, reminiscent of early Iron Maiden.”Torches Ablaze” and “Serve Your Master” move like a railgun at full capacity, annihilating the ears,. “Running Rampant” and “Eyes For Conquest” are crack to the ears with an addictive blend of speed thrash, the latter sounding like it’s straight from the 1980s. Straight Shooter starts strong but falls flat after the first few tracks. There is a lot to like here and with some polish, Speedtrap will be poised to dominate.
