70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Video Clip For New Song "Into The Fire" Posted By Cripper

Trying to describe Cripper's musical style can be challenging. Maybe as early as 2014 with the album Hyƫna, but definitely now in 2017 with the barnstorming "Follow Me: Kill!," you cannot simply file the five-piece from Hannover, Germany, as a thrash band. The album will be available on September 15th via Metal Blade Records, with pre-orders available at this location.

Ever since the debut album, the band has shifted from rather technical thrash towards a unique approach to extreme metal. All the while, Cripper has never been afraid of transgressing genre boundaries, giving free reign to creativity.

About the new album, the group says: "These are ten ass-kicking tracks, at times lightning fast, at other times atmospheric or epic, but never standard fare - always intense and firing on all cylinders."

"Follow Me: Kill!" adds fresh, exciting elements into Cripper's music. Still, the band never forgets where it came from and stays true within the frames of musical progression. The result is an effort that maintains the heaviness and groove the band is known for, while also containing atmospheric parts, capably realized and granting diversity.

Cripper unfolds their creative potential far beyond their music. Apart from designing their artwork and merchandise by themselves, they even conceive and produce their ambitious video clips on their own. This is also why Cripper appeals to big business partners such as the international label Metal Blade Records. For the second time around, the company will promote an album of theirs, with plans to take them to the next level with Follow Me: Kill!, and beyond!

The track listing is as follows:

1. Pressure (available for streaming here)
2. Into The Fire
3. World Coming Down (limited Digipak CD only)
4. Mother
5. Shoot or Get Shot
6. Bleeding Red
7. Comatose

9. Running High
10. Menetekel
