BAND WAR RIPPER
ALBUM STRENGHT IN NUMBERS
LABEL Dying Victims Productions
OUT Aug 26th, 2022
WAR RIPPER’s second EP, entitled “Strength in Numbers”, will be available on 7” vinyl format on Aug 26th, 2022.
WAR RIPPER is a side-project of Joel Grind, who needs no introduction for the long-running (and influential) Toxic Holocaust as well as his solo work and the Tiger Junkies with Abigail founder Yasuyuki.
From the start, WAR RIPPER was built on the foundation of honoring Joel’s D-beat influences, and he thrillingly recast with the strict-yet-exciting Hellstorm EP in 2007 courtesy of Hells Headbangers.
Joel Grind brought back WAR RIPPER in the pandemic-stricken 2020 with the EP Strength in Numbers. Originally released on Bandcamp, Strength in Numbers at last sees a physical release on 7” vinyl courtesy of longtime fans DYING VICTIMS.
Picking up exactly where Hellstorm left off but buttressed by clear-yet-crushing production, Strength in Numbers is a swift ‘n’ satisfying statement of metallic D-beat.
