The Affair Of The Poisons ( 180Gram Vinyl LP )
THE SECOND STUDIO ALBUM OF SUPREME BLACKENED THRASH METAL DEVASTATION FROM RISING UK TITANS, HELLRIPPER
The Affair of the Poisons is the second full-length album by the UKs premiere blackened thrash metal trailblazers, Hellripper, presenting the latest savage assault of blistering old school riffs & hyper-speed soloing which has earned the band a reputation as one of the nations best rising heavy metal acts.
Inspired by the likes of old-school legends including Venom, Kreator, Sabbat [JPN] and Metallica, James McBain formed Hellripper in 2014 and 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 UKs Metal Hammer hailing Hellripper as Scotland's King of the arcane mosh & the band receiving attention throughout Europe and 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 and 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 and witchcraft, with the inspired cover artwork courtesy of Skadvaldur.
