The death-trap which this one has viewed is space based, made up of two rectangular structures assembled in a V shape with the join on the shorter rectangular edge. The rectangles are simply constructed using tubing, one rectangle having a AI control sensor dome on the top edge offset to one side. the other rectangle has a sticky surface to capture souls and many storage pods (say 50). These pods store and process the captured souls.
There is a great deal of lightning/interference/confusion/warping of reality around the death-trap, with it sending out many strikes against nearby souls.
I recall that death-traps work by enticing spaceborne souls near them using beautiful music/sounds/lights, and when the soul comes close it shocks/disorientates them and then captures the soul.
