Ronny Bittner from Rock Hard magazine about
"Hyëna": "Stylistically, the Hanoverans deliver just the right
mixture between old school and modern Thrash!"
Comments Jakob Kranz
from Deaf Forever magazine: "The songs are more beefy, aggressive, precise
and diverse than on Antagonist' and leave no doubt as to CRIPPER thoroughly
having done their homework when it came to their new label
Metal Hammer's Kai Leichtlein: "The fourth longplayer of
Cripper has become a consistently good, ferocious and aggressive
Nadine Schmidt from metal.de about the new album: "CRIPPER
deliver great songs, plain and simple, as a result of their skill and
CRIPPER convince with their enthralling mix of
old-school and modern Thrash Metal. Served with technical refinement and a lot
of groove, they kick ass while being varied and distinct. Since their founding
in 2005, the guys and gal from Hanover, Germany left their marks as being a
rousing live band, carrying the audience with dashing songs and sweaty shows. On
tours with Overkill and Onslaught, CRIPPER spread their virus throughout
Europe. Once a big festival got infected, they gladly book the band repeatedly -
therefore CRIPPER played several times on festivals like Summer Breeze,
Metalcamp/Metaldays, Wacken Rocks, Rockharz, Eindhoven Metal Meeting and the
70.000 Tons Of Metal Cruise.
With "Hyëna" CRIPPER
release their 4th studio album. The 11 tracks form a very homogeneous album, but
still CRIPPER manage to give each song a very unique flavor - 11
personalities where CRIPPER's distinctive style is showing through in
every riff and every note. Overall heavier and with a different, more
transparent sound concept, "Hyëna" is ready to boost
CRIPPER into the ears of the metal community around the globe. The album
is only the appetizer, CRIPPER are looking forward to presenting the new
stuff live! Watch out!
