12. November 2014

CRIPPER has just launched the fourth studio video for their new album “Hyëna” to be released the 21st of November, 2014!

Please surf over to www.metalblade.com/cripper to check it out and see Britta work on her vocal recordings. At the same location you can stream the third webisode as well as the new song “Tourniquet” and make sure to pre-order your copy of the album. “Hyëna” will be available as a limited CD+DVD Digipak as well as on vinyl in different colours. The bonus-DVD features the entire 45-minute show CRIPPER played at the Metaldays Open Air 2014 plus all the bands video clips and studio footage with a total running time of approximately 90 minutes.

Surf over HERE to our friends at Rock Hard to check out the 2nd single 7″!

Ronny Bittner from Rock Hard magazine about “Hyëna“: “Stylistically, the Hanoverans deliver just the right mixture between old school and modern Thrash!

Comments Jakob Kranz from Deaf Forever magazine: “The songs are more beefy, aggressive, precise and diverse than on ‚Antagonist’ and leave no doubt as to CRIPPER thoroughly having done their homework when it came to their new label debut!

Metal Hammer’s Kai Leichtlein: “The fourth longplayer of Cripper has become a consistently good, ferocious and aggressive album!

Nadine Schmidt from metal.de about the new album: “CRIPPER deliver great songs, plain and simple, as a result of their skill and experience!

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 Hanover, 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, Metalcamp/Metaldays, Wacken Rocks, Rockharz, Eindhoven Metal Meeting and the 70.000 Tons Of Metal Cruise.

With “HyënaCRIPPER release their 4th studio album. The 11 tracks form a very homogeneous album, but still CRIPPER manage to give each song a very unique flavor – 11 personalities where CRIPPER‘s distinctive style is showing through in every riff and every note. Overall heavier and with a different, more transparent sound concept, “Hyëna” is ready to boost CRIPPER into the ears of the metal community around the globe. The album is only the appetizer, CRIPPER are looking forward to presenting the new stuff live! Watch out!

PRIMORDIAL wins all four magazine soundchecks in Germany!

11. November 2014

Where Greater Men Have Fallen” to be released in less than two weeks!

Irish Metallers PRIMORDIAL have made quite an impact at the German press with their latest offering “Where Greater Men Have Fallen“! The album has won the soundchecks in all four major metal magazines, namely METAL HAMMER, ROCK HARD, DEAF FOREVER and LEGACY! This is the first time ever this is happening, congrats to PRIMORDIAL!

Comments singer A.A. Nemtheanga: “When u make an album you try and step outside of the rehearsal and studio world and see if you still have the hunger and the energy. You take nothing for granted and we certainly don’t so we are humbled by the critical reaction so far. Four #1s was not what we expected but we accept it graciously and hope the fans feel the same. See you on the field of battle. Vae victis!

Here’s some quotes from the mentioned magazines: “When the the guitarists of these Irishmen play their profoundly melancholic, yet gladly non-clichéd Celtic riffs while singer Alan Averill’s voice is dripping with pathos, it’s goosebumps galore. And since WHERE GREATER MEN HAVE FALLEN is once more an album that works out well, the result cannot be less than six points!(Robert Müller, Metal Hammer magazine Germany)

Sublime and tasteful: PRIMORDIAL celebrate on ‘Where Greater Men Have Fallen’ dark, sinister hymns to die for!(Boris Kaiser, Rock Hard magazine Germany)

brutally heavy, yet dramatic and sophisticated – the album of the year!(Götz Kühnemund, Deaf Forever magazine Germany)

an album hard to beat in authenticity, emotionality, in heaviness and atmosphere!(Diana Glöckner, Legacy magazine Germany)

Listen to the new song “Come The Flood” at THIS LOCATION!

Make also sure to surf over to metalblade.com/primordial to check out the lyric video to the title track “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” and to pre-order your copy of the album which will be available as a limited CD+DVD Digibook as well as jewelcase-CD and on different vinyl formats and colours. There will be a limited deluxe edition wooden boxset including the CD+DVD Digibook, an exclusive 7″, a leather wristband, a poster and a certificate of authenticity. This boxset will only be on sale via the landing page, our ebay store HERE and at the four PRIMORDIAL release shows in Hamburg, Essen (sold out), Berlin and Dublin!

An eight track, fifty-eight minute magnum opus, “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” was recorded at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma) and delivers some of the band’s deepest, most methodically arranged, thematically profound and plainly gripping compositions of their winding catalog of sonic enormity.

CRIPPER in mixing progress of new album ‘Hyena’!

30. July 2014

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!

Check out the first webisode at THIS location and click HERE for the brand new, second edition!

So far CRIPPER have released three studio albums and with that formed their distinctive style. The creative works of this highly motivated selfmade-team is always showing through in three different aspects: the album artworks, merchandise and so far four complex and artistic music video productions the band has self-produced from start to finish. Some new song material is ready by now – the cornerstones of the upcoming album are set. Fire at will!

Comments CRIPPER on the signed contract: “Crazy shit! We are part of the Metal Blade family now! Cripper is a self-made band. Despite never being signed to a real label, we have released 3 albums, toured Europe a couple times and even made it across the ocean twice. Being control freaks in every possible way, we were very content with our situation, but still we started to feel like it is time for a change. We were highly motivated to produce a new demo to see if Metal Blade liked our new stuff. To make a long story short: they did, and so we are here now, ready to walk trough newly opened doors and taking the opportunity to reach more people with our music. With Metal Blade we keep our self-made attitude regarding our artistic freedom and full control, only now we get the chance to present ourselves on a much larger platform. Our upcoming album with the title “Hyena” is in the making and we hope to release it worldwide in November!”
