Blissfucker is the fourth studio album by the American grindcore/crust punk band Trap Them. It was released on June 10, 2014. It is the first album to feature their new bassist, Galen Baudhuin (Infera Bruo), and drummer Brad Fickeisen (No Salvation, ex-The Red Chord). Like their 2011 release, Darker Handcraft, it will also be released on Prosthetic Records.

Trap Them were an American grindcore band based in Boston, Massachusetts and Seattle, Washington. Trap Them's influences include hardcore punk bands, such as Black Flag, Born Against, and Tragedy; metal bands like Dismember and Entombed (whose "buzzsaw" guitar tone create the main guitar sound for Trap Them), and experimental bands like Swans. Ryan McKenney's lyrics tend to deal with issues both personal and political, while recent material has also contained a conceptual element to its lyricism

Trap Them is breakneck at all times, pulling no punches and taking no breaks. They are unbridled anger masquerading as music. In the thirty-one minutes from start to finish, you are thrown about, disoriented, and taken on a terrifying rollercoaster ride through the depths of hell. You are given nary a chance to breathe, as the fear of your legs being taken out from under you pervades the album. There is also a very sinister edge to the whole thing, as if the album is dripping with Danzig’s blood. Until the last track, there is no point where things lighten up, or slow down

Their newest album, "Darker Handcraft", swims in straightforward, simple waters. Play heavy crust/grind. Their style is somewhat similar to fellow Seattle band Sanctum, but the songwriting on this album dwarfs that band. Every song has a hook, a catch, and a build-up to a tremendous explosion. I suppose Trap Them are at heart a hardcore band. The songs are fast and occasionally threaten to leave the listener with bleeding ears. 2008s Seizures in Barren Praise was a demolition derby set to music and Trap Them became a regular on my playlist. Now, 3 years later Darker Handcraft sees the band hit its absolute musical peak. The songs are furious and razor sharp but at the same time this is also the most diverse album the band has put together yet.
