Band Spotlight: Trapped Under Ice

Band Spotlight: Trapped Under Ice

Baltimore, MD, is a town that gets grouped with Detroit and Buffalo as industrial giants that have been left behind. And like its’ sister cites to the north and west, it continues to produce bands playing aggressive music in exciting new ways. Trapped Under Ice has been a carrier of that banner for Baltimore since the band’s inception in 2007, playing a mix of hardcore and metal with darker, more aggressive tones than the hardcore¬†youth-crew rally cries can provide. After forming, releasing a demo, and signing Reaper Records in 2007, TUI released the 7″ Stay Cold in 2008. Reminiscent of NYHC bands like Crown of Thornz, Sheer Terror, and Breakdown, Stay Cold received critical acclaim and propelled the band into the forefront of the global hardcore scene. In August 2009, the boys dropped another huge album with Secrets Of The World, which captures the band’s monsterous raw power and fearless attitude. They released a video for Believe off the album – check it out here for a taste of what they’re like live. Like the city that spawned them, Trapped Under Ice is tough as hell and they aren’t leaving anytime soon.
