Još jedan važan blues sastav, pored legendarnih Blues Wire, a koji dolazi iz Grčke je Small Blues Trap. Deluju u postavi kvarteta (Paul Karapiperis - vocals, harmonica, steel guitar ; Panagiotis Daras - guitar ; Lefteris Besios - bass ; Stathis Evageliou - drums), a predvodi ih pevač, glavni autor i harmonikaš, Paul Karapiperis.Osnovani su 2004. godine, a prvi diskografski korak načinili su objavljivanjem albuma "Crossroad Ritual", realizovan 2006. godine.

"Red Snakes & Cave Bats" je aktuelno izdanje iz ove, 2010. godine, i bend je CD objavio u sopstvenoj režiji. Takođe, važno je istaći da u pesmi "Buy A Dog", kao gost se pojavljuje Elias Zaikos, kao pevač i autor, inače, iz napred već pomenutog sastava Blues Wire. 13 ubedljivijih i ujednačenih numera je prisutno na CD-u "Red Snakes & Cave Bats".

Grupa Small Blues Trap je pokazala velike sposobnosti da istraži blues kao žanr kroz mnogo aspekata, tako da bend prolazi kroz roots formu, 70's rhythm and blues varijacije, južnjačku blues emociju, akustično izvedene pesme i mnogo toga između. Fantastičan glas Paula Karapiperisa dominira atmosferom samih pesama, ali je takođe jasno da svirači svoj posao odrađuju na najbolji mogući način. "Red Snakes & Cave Bats" je bogat prijatnom atmosferom, izvrsnim muziciranjem benda i modernim autorskim pogledima. U svakom slučaju je ovo preporučljiv produkt za starije i novije blues sledbenike, i apsolutno je vredan slušalačke pažnje.
