I can’t for the life of me remember how I found out about Cripper. I scoured my usual haunts and came up empty. Regardless, I think I’ve found Hanover, Germany’s best kept secret. Or one of them anyways. What blew me away about this band was not just the well constructed mix of thrash ,groove, and a dash of death metal but the vocal talents of one Britta Görtz. If you’re used to Angela Gassow style vocals then you’ll really like Brittas. Well as it happens they are in the process of creating and releasing their third album ‘The Antagonist’. Here is the artwork.
After the jump is the track listing and a video that let’s the band’s music speak for itself.
