Trapt’s Chris Taylor Brown Has a Death Wish, Is Now Feuding With Danny Diablo

  • Axl Rosenberg

Well, this social media meltdown by Trapt’s Chris Taylor Brown has been amusing, but it’s probably coming to its end soon… for Brown may not be long for this world. Having already pissed off Ice-T and a myriad of other musicians, Brown has now drawn the ire of Danny Diablo (a.k.a. Lord Ezec), which is about as wise as walking into a coronavirus ward and licking everything.

Diablo, in case you don’t know, has been a staple of the NYHC scene for almost thirty years now (metal fans are likely most familiar with him from Icepick, his hardcore supergroup with Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta), and he is so NOT the dude with whom you fuck. A brief history of Mr. Diablo, as kindly outlined by Metal Injection:

“[Diablo] made a name for himself with hardcore projects like Crown of Thornz and Skarhead. Diablo almost died after a 1993 fight where he was stabbed with an eight inch screwdriver. Despite that, he was almost charged by the court because of the beating his attacker took. In 1998, he was arrested for attempted murder. This guy is no joke.”

This is the man with whom Brown is now feuding. I guess he couldn’t find a fork to stick in an electrical socket.

What happened is this: Mr. Diablo stood up for Ice-T, who has been the latest target of Brown’s rantings.

At that point, anyone with one iota of common sense would either apologize or at least, y’know, shut their fucking yap. But not Chris Taylor Brown! After all, he’s headstrong, and will take on anyone. So he proffered this retort:

And then things just escalated from there:

Diablo — who, incidentally, is not single — finally put this cherry on top:

Details of Brown’s memorial service have not yet been made public. In lieu of flowers, his family asks that you please make a charitable donation in his name. Thank you.
