"Brain Trauma - Flatline Review"

Kasket Records have come a long long way over the last couple years, from burnt CD's with marker writing on them being given away on the street to now professionally manufactured cellaphane sealed CD's in the store and at shows all over the region (yes I mean multiple states). Since this is an EP it features only 7 songs and a remix to one of those. Kasket Kyle can be accused of alot of things (looking like he'll stab your mom being one of them) but you can't say a single thing about this guys work ethic or how much his flow and rhyme style has improved over time. The intro to the CD shows off perfectly his new and improved flow spitting a rapid fire double time delivery over a very nice track. Too bad its so short.

The more I listened to the CD the more I could see their growth. Flatline and Flashlight both show guys growing into their song writing skills with good choruses and concepts. Diagnosis drops a hot guest verse on Flatline as well. I had never really listened to much "horrorcore" before a few months ago when Kyle let me hear a few of his favorite artists, comparing this Flatline EP to them I'd have to say that Brain Trauma is well on their way to being a top flight group in this sub-genre of hip hop. "We'll Always Be Together" is a perfect example of how to make a hot song that will get alot of people's attention.

The only complaint I had about the CD was the Moshpit Remix of Flatline, I wasnt feeling the music for it at all. This is a VERY solid release and hopefully a precursor of good things to come out of the Kasket Records camp.

I give it a 6/10 and a go buy it rating. While not your typical underground backpack rap or street pharmacist rhymes. This CD show's that MC's come in all shapes forms and fashions. -

Feeling a bit camera shy


A lot of people try to put a tag or a label on Brain Trauma. They try to compare it to something else. This is an impossible thing to do. Brain Trauma can best be described as a hardcore hip-hop act, mixed with death metal and pro wrestling. Fans who come out for a Brain Trauma show can expect a fast paced, high intensity atmosphere full of harsh and quick lyricism, extremely hyped stage presence, and an in your face performance.

Brain Trauma members Kasket Kyle and Toxik Flow have been known to enter the moshpit themselves during there own shows simply to get the crowd moving that much more. No one leaves without getting involved in the show. Even the little guy standing in the back with his girlfriend gets a taste of Brain Trauma flavor.
