Great news for punk music lovers – Kraytracker is open for public registrations. For those of you who don’t know what it is, Kraytracker is a private BitTorrent tracker and a community which specializes in punk/ska/hardcore and other alternative music genres. It’s a highly sought after BitTorrent tracker which is almost always closed to the public (just do a Google search and you’ll see many invite request threads for Kraytracker). In addition to the torrents, this site is known for its close knit community of members.
As of 25/4/2009, Kraytracker has close to 3000 members and tracks over 6600 active torrents. It has a nice, clean layout that is very much navigable. Search features on this site are also very good with users being able to sort the results by many elements such as the no. of seeders, leechers, snatches etc as well as the ability to search for free leech torrents.
Speaking of the content found on Kraytracker, I'd say it’s similar to that of PunkTorrents (Open). A lot of punk/hardcore/rap (see categories below for more) music is tracked here, both old and new. Some of the torrents found on Kraytracker are pretty rare and not usually found on other music trackers.
As mentioned above registrations are currently open. Kraytracker is not a site that opens up frequently and we do not know for how long it will stay open this time around. Get in while you can.
