CRIPPER were founded in 2005, have released five albums so far and look back onto several tours in Germany and Europe (with Overkill, Onslaught et al.) as well as countless festival appearances (Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, 70.000 Tons of Metal, Brutal Aussault, Metaldays, Rockharz, Metalfest etc.) plus single shows. Still, they continue to expand their international audience and keep putting the pedal to the metal. Since more than a decade, the band has been a notorious live spectacle, eager to play and a safe bet in terms of sweat-drenched shows. CRIPPER unfold their creative potential far beyond their music. Apart from designing their artworks and merchandise by themselves, they even conceive and produce their ambitious video clips on their own.
This is also why CRIPPER appeal to big business partners such as the international label Metal Blade Records. For the second time around, the company will promote an album of theirs and plans to cling to the band beyond “Follow Me: Kill!”

It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
