He's back again! The French maniac TRAUMATISME returns with his latest release HORRORWOOD ROCKS 2.

Once again Traumatisme delivers a fantastic album with quality songs. The packaging is gorgeous from the concept art to the multi page booklet and it really puts some major label releases to shame.

As for the songs, they are great big slabs of horror rock that fit so well with Traumatisme's image and concept. Horror rock might not be big or clever but is sure as hell a whole lot of fun and this album is certainly that. Catchy choruses, big riffs and some wonderful trashy bubblegum glam punk horror lyrics are what makes this album so special.

Just like the previous release, Horrorwood Rocks, the production is the only thing that is weak about this album and for a self produced album that is understandable but that really doesn't get in the way of how good the songs are. If someone would give Traumatisme a good budget to do an album then the results would be staggering.

Traumatisme has pulled out a blinder with Horrorwood Rocks 2 and I highly recommend this release.
