Hellripper, the project headed up by the mind-bogglingly-talented James McBain, is back with a new single "The Nuckelavee" and a new record Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags ready for February 17. If you're ready to go so fucking fast that all your skin peels off and everything inside you disintegrates into the howling winds, then you're going to love this.
"I wanted 'The Nuckelavee' to be the first track released as it’s not only the album opener, but it is the song that I think best represents the overall sound and vibe of the record," said McBain. "It's speed metal at its core but with a few twists. Lyrically, 'The Nuckelavee' is based on the Orcadian tale of the eponymous creature – a grotesque and skinless horse-like demon that brings plague and death wherever it travels."
