Odiumediae Pretty much the best Black/Speed Metal I've listened to since I learned about Evil Invaders and Vulture. Everything you'd love to be reminded of about this musical era is there. The influences are what you'd expect too: Motörhead, Venom, Bathory, early Slayer, Celtic Frost; aggressive vocals, tortured guitar solos, pounding drums; everything is fast, clear and still a little grimy, but without reverb cranked up to the max. Amazing band, amazing album. Favorite track: Within the Everlasting Hellfire.

Vanja There are certain elements in music that immidately make me go "nope" and stop the playback. One of those is the drum machine. It was only the sight of the band photo which reveals this is a one-man project that made me stick around and give it a chance. And boy am I glad I did! Surely enough, the riffs tore me a new one and now I can certainly say that this kicks some speedy ass. Favorite track: Bastard of Hades.

about

Recorded DIY between October 2016 and February 2017

“Scotland's King of the arcane mosh.” - Metal Hammer

"[Coagulating Darkness] feels as much a homage as it does an original creation... which, given the backwards-facing
tendencies of black, speed, and thrash metal, means he's nailed it." - Noisey

"Old school metal as it was meant to be, Hellripper has crafted the album to beat this year. Fans of everything from
Sabbat to Venom to Toxic Holocaust should be looking into this now, as this is authentic black/speed metal with all of
the trimmings that make this style so great." - The Metal Observer

Track Name: Bastard of Hades
The fall of the cross brings the new age of hell
The temples are burned to the ground
Slaves to the darkness and under my spell
Satan's perversion unbound

Armageddon coming closer
Children howl at the night
Degradation and slaughter
Total mayhem with satanic might

I am the goat
I am the Antichrist
I am unholy - tormenting the night

Inverting the cross
Bringing disease
The master of hell
The bastard of hades...

Will strike down the pious with wicked delight
Drinking the blood of the pure
Virgins defiled as they beg for their life
Eternal infernal war

Armageddon coming closer
Children howl at the night
Degradation and slaughter
Total mayhem with satanic might

I am the goat
I am the Antichrist
I am unholy - tormenting the night

Inverting the cross
Bringing disease
The master of hell
The bastard of hades will strike
Track Name: Anneliese
Convulsions breed terror
The manifestation made clear
Malformations bring tremors
Bestial outburst severe

Tearing the crown of roses
From the claws of the priest
Delusional diagnosis
A victim in the hands of the beast

Out from the fires of hell
6 demons enter the physical world
Possessed by the creatures below
Decrepit, feeble and hollow

Anneliese Michel – A vessel where the demons dwell
Anneliese Michel – A portal to the underworld

Submit to the darkness within

Hallucinations of horror
Seven crowns and seven horns
An Exhibition of torture
A fragile object of scorn

A martyr for the sinners
Enduring endless torment and pain
Never truly delivered
The mind of the girl is drained

Out from the fires of hell
6 demons enter the physical world
Possessed by the creatures below
Decrepit, feeble and hollow

Anneliese Michel – A vessel where the demons dwell
Anneliese Michel – A portal to the underworld

Submit to the darkness within

Let her burn!
Track Name: Demdike (In League with the Devil)
“Jesus, save my child, for I bare the mark
The black spirit shadows my presence and wanders the dark
I will have my vengeance, you will die in pain
Iniquitous, black magick practice - subjugation as your soul withers away”

Demdike
In league with the Devil

“Jesus, save my child, I am one with the beast
I am bound to the fire and I will not be released
Your perilous future will be written in clay
Sinister, blasphemous witchcraft – debilitating as your soul withers away”

Demdike
In league with the Devil
Whore - Bastard - Evil
In league with the Devil

Demdike
In league with the Devil
Whore - Bastard - Evil
In league with the Devil
Track Name: Within the Everlasting Hellfire
Summoning...

We summon forth our master, our saviour
Baptise us in the name of the goat
We bring you the newborn, the sweet sinful blood
And we drink the life straight from its throat

Dance – Around the circle of...
Fire – Sign Lucifer's pact
Chant – The words of black magick spell
Cast down – into the everlasting flame

You are bound
To remain within the everlasting hellfire

Cast down

We submit ourselves to the darkness
Eternal adoration of the beast
Carving diabolic sigils
The devil's receipt

We kneel before the altar of Satan
Let us ascend towards the sky
Seven spirits gathered here in carnal desire
We trample the cross we deny

Dance – Around the circle of...
Fire – Sign Lucifer's pact
Chant – The words of black magick spell
Cast down – into the everlasting flame

You are bound
To remain within the everlasting hellfire
Track Name: From Hell
I am the mutilator
I'll cut the bitch and watch her die
Surreptitious desecrator
Run for your life

The mist it hides my presence
Through darkened streets I stalk
Though they feel my omnipresence
They howl in shock

Feel the steel
Pierce your flesh
Taste the blade
As I incise

Screams of pain
Fill the air
Helpless victim
Paralysed

From Hell

Bound for humiliation
I'll drain the bitch with frantic lust
Perverted fascination
Draped in disgust

“I send you half the kidne”
This simple act depraved
A vile beast within me
Born to degrade

Feel the steel
Pierce your flesh
Taste the blade
As I incise

Screams of pain
Fill the air
Helpless victim
Paralysed

From Hell

Catch me when you can!

Feel the steel
Pierce your flesh
Taste the blade
As I incise

Screams of pain
Fill the air
Helpless victim
Paralysed

From Hell

I am the ripper
...From Hell
Track Name: Black Invocation
They gather round the pentagram with fire in their eyes
Mesmerised by cryptic flame, conjuring their demise
Clandestine ritual of foul, arcane blasphemies
Blood is spilled, the chants commence the evil sorcery

Black Invocation

Ancient spirits, blackened spectres rise up from the flame
The Lord of darkness dominant, as the disciples cry his name
One by one, each child drained and cast down below
To dance among the cults of Hades, slaves forever more

Black Invocation
Track Name: Conduit Closing
I bleed before the congregation as I devour the light
The winds of hades worsen as the spectres prepare for their flight
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closing

I suffer lacerations as this sermon opens gateways obscure
I bathe in the echoes of spirits that I have conjured
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closing

I bleed before the congregation as I devour the light
The winds of hades worsen as the spectres prepare for their flight
Evil – The nefarious triumph of death
Demons rise from the depths

Death for possession
This deadly obsession
This unholy sermon impure

Infernal legions
They shatter and weaken
Their lecherous ills I endure

Morbid deception
This foul perception
From beyond the kingdoms of sin

Decrepit vessel
In league with the devil
Malevolent spectres within

Conduit closed
Track Name: Coagulating Darkness
Surrender unto me you mortals, mist will devour the light
Capitulate in the terror of the maelstrom, into eternal night
Hypnotised by the bells of hades, armies march on to torment
Hellhounds shrieking and death cults rising, apostles begin to ascend

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace the coagulating dark

Temples have fallen, bodies are rotting, the frail and the weak have been slain
A monument to the triumph of darkness, a pillar to the conquest of pain
Desecrate with the aim to conquer, legions unleash their commands
Bringing darkness and force-fed terror, there's no repentance for the damned

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace the coagulating dark

Rise – blackened spectres
Kill – The non-believers
Swallowed by the infernal flame

March – Satan's soldiers
Gaze – Into the abyss
The birth of the new infernal...

Reign – of total terror
Feast – of morbid pleasure
Bringer of the blackest domain

Burn – the holy scripture
Hold – The Unhallowed sceptre
The birth of the new infernal reign

Surrender unto me you mortals, mist will devour the light
Capitulate in the terror of the maelstrom, into eternal night

Whipped by the forked tongue of Lucifer
Disciples of the beast embrace...

The coagulating dark
