SCUMRIPPER - Self Titled 7"er review
SCUMRIPPER - Self Titled 7"er
Hells Headbangers Records
With a name like SCUMRIPPER, of course I've gotta write about it. Here we have three miscreants from Finland who call the gutter home and love blasting scumfuck punk/metal in your face. Musically it's MIDNIGHT meets the MENTORS. This originally came out as a cassette release in 2016 put out by Caligari Records. The good people at HELLS HEADBANGERS records took notice and reissued it on vinyl this year. There's also a promise of a full length in the future.
SCUMRIPPER consists of vocalist/guitarist Rat Pitt, drummer Son Stalker, and bassist Cliff Hunger. Nice names and with song titles like "Shit Needle Crown," "Cum Killa," "Run to the Pills," and "Gutter Heights" you should get where they're coming from. Obviously it's nothing new to my ears and probably yours as well if you're into scum themed punk and metal. Still it's always going to be crave worthy.
