California-based alternative metal quartet Trapt was formed in 1995 by group of high school friends. Drawing inspiration from grunge, as well as metal icons like Metallica, Trapt forged their sound on the independent releases AMALGAMATION and GLIMPSE. The band signed to Warner Brothers in 2001, and the label released the band’s self-titled big league debut in 2002, and a following EP and sophomore effort, SOMEONE IN CONTROL, in 2005. The band then gained prominence through their successful singles and widespread touring. In 2007 Trapt signed to Nikki Sixx’s Eleven Seven label, and released a live album, and their third full-length ONLY THROUGH THE PAIN. ~ Rovi
Trapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in August 1997, best known for their 2003 hit "Headstrong".The group consists of lead singer Chris Taylor Brown, lead guitarist Travis Miguel, drummer Dylan Thomas Howard and bass guitarist Peter Charell. They have released six studio albums to date: Amalgamation, Trapt, Someone in Control, Only Through the Pain, No Apologies and Reborn.
The members of Trapt met in high school in the mid-'90s and shortly thereafter developed an act with Chris Taylor Brown (vocals), Simon Ormandy (guitar), Peter Charell (bass), and David Stege (drums). The band's first few rehearsals were in Ormandy's guesthouse, which had a party-like atmosphere with its loft overlooking the living room.They began playing at local venues in 1997 before any members had graduated high school. The band received a great response and a positive buzz soon started to grow. In 1998, still before graduation, they were already opening for up-and-coming fellow acts like Papa Roach.
They recorded and released their first CD, Amalgamation in 1999, which they sold at their live shows. Their second release, the Glimpse EP, came in 2000, and another EP, 2001's self-titled Trapt, served as the band's demo. Between the strength of these releases and the successes in touring, they were able to garner major record label attention.
