First two webisodes online!
German Death/Thrashers CRIPPER are in the process of mixing their new album.
Here’s an update straight from the studio: “Fellas, a big step in the progress of producing “Hyena” is done. We are happy to announce that all recordings are finished and we are entering the mixing phase now. It’s still 4 months from now until release, but to give you some sneak peeks, here’s another podcast for you. Besides the audio recordings, we also filmed our whole set at Metaldays festival in Tolmin/Slovenia. Strangely enough, it was the first time ever that we played in the rain, even though the overall festival weather was brutally hot and sunny! The audience didn’t mind, neither did we. Crowdsurfers, circle pits, wall of death and a rowing pit made all our worries disappear – thanks to everyone getting soaked with us! We had a massively positive feedback at our signing session, where the line of people wouldn’t stop for a whole hour. Crazy shit!”
CRIPPER convince with their enthralling mix of old-school and modern Thrash Metal. Served with technical refinement and a lot of groove, they kick ass while being varied and distinct. Since their founding in 2005, the guys and gal from Hannover, Germany left their marks as being a rousing live band, carrying the audience with dashing songs and sweaty shows. On tours with Overkill and Onslaught, CRIPPER spread their virus throughout Europe. Once a big festival got infected, they gladly book the band repeatedly – therefore CRIPPER played several times on festivals like Summer Breeze, Wacken Rocks, Metalfest and Rockharz Open Air. But there’s even more – boarding the well-known 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise ship from Miami twice, playing the Brutal Assault festival in the Czech Republic, shows at the Bang Your Head, in Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Austria, Switzerland and being invited to enter the stage of the Slovenian Metaldays 5 (!) times let CRIPPER gain international recognition and a continuously growing fanbase.
