Textbook Traitors

You Pull The Strings That Make Us Dance

Magic Bullet 44

Released on February 25, 2003


Somebody finally sent a demo in to Magic Bullet that didn't get flung from a car window! Textbook Traitors, from Milwaukee, WI, play a refreshing brand of no-BS hardcore not unlike Reversal of Man and To Dream of Autumn. The music is blistering - picture Converge's "Jane Doe" at 45 RPM. The lyrics are direct and not veiled - these guys aren't afraid to lay it all out on the table. Incredible depth and hand-crafted packaging put together and silkscreened by the band and the label. Just when you started to think that every band and every label was becoming all about ulterior motives and making compromising careers for themselves, along comes Textbook Traitors to remind each and every one of us 1.) where we come from 2.) why we got involved and 3.) where we need to go with this thing called punk.

I like this better then the collections disc, i just think the songs are better. (i own both) the cd is pretty sweet but i think that some of the songs could be a tad bit shorter.

Now this is a damn good band. Intense emo at its best. Great EP, I can't wait for more material from this band.

Textbook Traitors is a great band that plays great music. Music to get you wanting to mosh and be insane, John has great vocals and has inspired me in the music industry. The songs are fast paced, and the band has remarkable musical talent. If you haven't bought this cd, its well worth $10, after you listen to it, the next step is to get out of your house and see them live. They put on an amazing live show. Being John's (vocalist) cousin i get to know when all the new cds and tours are being sent out. So go and pick up the cd, "Textbook Traitors" !!!You Pull The Strings That Make Us Dance.!!!

This is one great debut cd. My favorite thing about this are the vocals. They are really high and shrieky and musically they are a little screamo-ish. Almost similar to Orchid. The only problem I have is the lenght. It's 6 songs in about 16 minutes. However, it is still well worth the $10. Nice cardboard packaging aswell.
