“It keeps things fierce and fast. Imagine early Kreator being covered by Watchtower and you might be honing in on the Ripper sound.”
– No Clean Singing
“Boasting a robust, supercharged thrash engine, fueled by old school Kreator and Sepultura riffs, Chile’s Ripper do what their moniker implies, tearing it up with pinpoint precise thrash workouts delivered with the typical toughness and raw edge of their South American roots.” – Angry Metal Guy
“South America? Space? Spine-shifting metal? Fuck yes!” -Toilet Ov Hell
The high-speed thrashing and intricate riffs are still there, as well as the philosophical lyrics and incomprehensibly good bass work. But the band has leaned a little further into their progressive influences, with a more pronounced presence of Atheist riding shotgun with their usual Teutonic and South American thrash forerunners. The result is an outing that feels rich despite a run time of roughly 20 minutes, loaded with some of the band’s best playing and most fascinating ideas to date.
