RIPPER “Third Witness”

“Third Witness”
(Black Widow)
No, this is not a new album by the former Judas Priest vocalist. This is an album by a band named Ripper. It is still heavy metal though. I have always had a harder time with American heavy metal. I have always had a fondness for the Euro style of heavy metal. Not that I haven’t heard some killer US metal bands. It is just that there is something to US metal that doesn’t always sit well with me. RIPPER has a doomy kind of heavy metal sound. Somewhere between traditional metal and doom. A style that isn’t as instant accessible metal the way bands like Savatage play it. This takes some getting used to but once acquainted you will have a hard time not to like it. Anders Ekdahl
