Speedtrap stream new Svart album at Noisey

Today, Finnish riff-mongers Speedtrap stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second album album, Straight Shooter - set for international release on September 11th via Svart Records - at heavily trafficked tastemakers Noisey - Music By Vice. Speedtrap's debut album, Powerdose, took many by surprise and left many established acts eating dust on several end-of-the-year lists in 2013. Metal Hammer called it "metal fed on a diet of Motorhead and alcohol, Exciter and suspect powders – high octane and hellbent for leather” while considered it a “fist-raising triumph.” Since then, Speedtrap have performed across the European continent and also gone through some lineup changes: Jaakko Hietakangas (ex-Ranger) has joined the ranks as second guitarist, and Antti Salminen has taken up bass duties while earlier bassist Markus Hietamies has switched to the drum-set.

Even though Speedtrap still are a loud, obnoxious bunch of catchy riff-mongers with no regard for speed limits, Straight Shooter also showcases the band’s ability to push the envelope and, with their new dual-guitar setup, write memorable songs that twist and turn like a drag racer on LSD. Hear the entire evidence of this exclusively here, courtesy of Noisey - Music By Vice. Cover for the album (painted by Paul Chapman) and tracklisting are as follows:
