Biography

Trapt is an alternative band from Los Gatos, California. The band formed in 1995, after meeting in high school, with members: Chris Taylor Brown (vocalist), Simon Ormandy (guitarist), Peter Charrell (bassist) and David Stege (drummer) and recorded the albums ‘Amalgamation’ and ‘Glimpse’ to sell at local shows. After several rehearsal absences and negative feedback the band decided to let David go. While attempting to find a suitable replacement, the band signed to Warner Bros. Records and began recording their debut self-titled album. The band enlisted Robin Diaz, to perform drums on the record, and in turn Robin, helped the band find their permanent drummer, Aaron Montgomery.

On November 22nd, 2002, the band released Trapt, along with the single “Headstrong”. “Headstrong” became a fantastic hit, reaching #1 on alternative charts and #16 on pop. Follow-up singles “Still Frame” and “Echo” (with a video featuring Michelle Trachtenberg) did respectably, although they never reached the heights of “Headstrong”. “Headstrong” became the official theme song of WWE Bad Blood for June 2003. Trapt eventually hit platinum. After more than one year an EP followed on March 30th, 2004, that included a new song called “Promise” along with live versions of “Made Of Glass” and “Echo”.

On September 13th, 2005, the band released their sophomore album “Someone In Control” along with the single “Stand Up”. “Stand Up” failed to do as well as any of their previous singles, although it still made an excellent run on active rock stations.

    Reborn is ok. I mean it sounds boring they don't have the heavy/catchy hooks that they do in their older stuff, and it's hard to say this because they sound didn't even change! I think they are at a point in their career that they either need to take more time in their music to keep sounding good, change their sound in a different direction, or break up. As much as I love how this band sounds like themselves and trying not to sell out, I think they need to do something new or take more time into their music or else no one is going to pay attention to them anymore.

    Someone In Control for me personally is one of the best rock albums ever produced. Not a single weak song on that record. Still jammin' it today.

    Still trying to sit through a full play-through of Reborn. There's something about it that's just hard to swallow, I always find myself having to switch over. What a disappointment.

    я смотрю у группы привычка выпускать крутые альбомы через раз - 2002, 2008, 2013 ништяковые, а 1999, 2005 и 2010 неочень
