The second studio album of supreme blackened thrash metal devastation from Uk act Hellripper. The Affair Of The Poisons is a savage assault of blistering old school riffs and hyper-speed soloing which has earned the band a reputation as one of the nations best rising heavy metal acts. Inspired by the likes of old-school legends including Venom, Kreator, Sabbat [Japan] and Metallica, James McBain formed Hellripper in 2014 and with the release of the debut EP The Manifestation Of Evil shortly after, the Scottish band was already making a very clear statement of hellish destruction with an electrifying brand of blackened thrash. Building on the momentum of the debut EP with a string of split releases, the debut album Coagulating Darkness was released in 2017 to media acclaim, with the UKs Metal Hammer hailing Hellripper as Scotland’s King of the arcane mosh and the band receiving attention throughout Europe and the US. This was followed by the EP Black Arts And Alchemy, along with an increased live presence of high profile shows before an eventual deal was inked with Peaceville. The album title itself is based around the 17th Century real-life scandal of murder and witchcraft, with the inspired cover artwork courtesy of Skadvaldur.
