CRIPPER convince 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 Hanover 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 spread their virusthroughout Europe. Once a big festival got infected, they gladly book the band repeatedly – therefore CRIPPER played several times on festivals like Summer Breeze, Wacken Rocks, Metalfest and Rockharz Open Air.
But there‘s even 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 (a.o. Eindhoven Metal Meeting), Poland, Austria, Switzerland and being invited to enter the stage of the Slovenian Metaldays 5 (!) times let CRIPPER gain international recognition and a continuously growing fanbase.
The creative works of this highly motivated self-made-team is always showing through in three different aspects: the album artworks, merchandise and so far four complex and artistic music video productions.
November 2014 Metal Blade Records released the 4th album „Hyena“ what gave CRIPPER an extra boost to march into the future!
