The Scottish one man phenomenon Hellripper have released their debut single and animated lyric video for ‘Spectres Of The Blood Moon Sabbath’ from the upcoming new studio album ‘The Affair Of The Poisons’ scheduled for release on 9th October 2020 through Peaceville.

‘Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath’ sets the scene for the new album as its themes primarily revolve around the dark & insidious underworld witchcraft and the occult, with some tracks being based on historical events. The single unfurls in an infernal storm of heavy blackened thrash.

James McBain, Hellripper main man comments “this was one of the first tracks written for the album and has a definite “rock ‘n’ roll” feel to it with its bouncy rhythm & a Motörhead or TANK vibe, and it is one of two songs on the album where Joseph (live guitarist) performed lead guitar”.

Chugging rhythms and nifty guitar playing kick this track off perfectly before some of the best death metal growling I have heard in sometime. Top it off with a solo that Angus Young would be proud of and you have one hell of metal headbanger.

The Affair Of The Poisons will be released on CD, LP, cassette and digital through Peaceville on 9th October and is available to pre-order here
