THE SECOND STUDIO ALBUM OF SUPREME BLACKENED THRASH METAL DEVASTATION FROM RISING UK TITANS, HELLRIPPER, NOW ON MID-PRICE CD. 2020's 'The Affair Of The Poisons' was the second full-length album by the UK's premiere blackened thrash metal trailblazers, Hellripper, presenting the latest savage assault of blistering old school riffs & hyperspeed soloing which has earned the band a reputation as one of the nation's best rising heavy metal acts.

Inspired by the likes of old-school legends including Venom, Kreator, Sabbat [JPN] & Metallica, James McBain formed Hellripper in 2014 & with the release of the debut EP 'The Manifestation of Evil' shortly after, the Scottish band was already making a very clear statement of hellish destruction with an electrifying brand of blackened thrash. Building on the momentum of the debut EP with a string of split releases, the debut album 'Coagulating Darkness' was released in 2017 to media acclaim, with the UK's Metal Hammer hailing Hellripper as "Scotland's King of the arcane mosh" & the band receiving attention throughout Europe & the US. This was followed by the EP 'Black Arts & Alchemy', along with an increased live presence of high profile shows before an eventual deal was inked with Peaceville.

'The Affair Of The Poisons' was recorded & mixed by McBain himself & mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Midnight, Nails). The album title itself is based around the 17th Century real-life scandal of murder & witchcraft, with the inspired cover artwork courtesy of Skadvaldur.
