Brain Trauma is Charleston’s leading horrorcore rap group, and they’re making their new album, “Army Of Trauma Victimz” available as a free download from their website. This is a “Parental Advisory” album, due to strong language and dark themes, but it’s also a musically intriguing statement about the world and hip hop culture’s role in it. Plus, anyone who opens their album with samples of Charles Manson has pretty much won me over. I used to play cuts from his album on my old radio show and say he was a local boy.
I met Kasket Kyle and Toxic Flow from Brain Trauma through IWA East Coast wrestling, and we’re going to have them on Radio Free Charleston very soon. Until then, download the album and check it out. Don’t crank it up at work, though. Might not be prudent.
