Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the addition of German thrashers CRIPPER to its roster! CRIPPER are convincing 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 have 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 have spread their virus throughout Europe. Once a big festival was infected, they would book the band again – CRIPPER played several times on festivals such as: Summer Breeze, Wacken Rocks, Metalfest, and Rockharz Open Air. But there’s 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 five times have allowed CRIPPER to gain international recognition and a continuously growing fanbase.

The Hanover based thrash metal act Cripper is back with their smoking third album titled ANTAGONIST, and man, are they back with a vengeance! I think that Cripper is one of the best new thrash acts around today. Growler Britta Görtz, Guitarists Jonathan Stenger and Christian Bröhenhorst along with new bass player Gerrit Mohrmann and I had a chat about what the new album is about and of course what the band have been up to in between the releases. The interview became pretty long so if you like thrash metal I urge you to check out Cripper. Remember where you read about them first! If you want to read more about the bands background then take a look at the previous interview I did with Cripper.
Here is an interview with the German Trash metal act Cripper. When I heard the band’s second album I felt that I had to talk with this band. So here we go, here comes the past, present and future of Cripper. I think all fans of thrash metal are gonna love Cripper and their music.
