RS16 CALIGULA - Technical aggression LP

Ripping Storm is proud to unveil another treasure until now hidden in the deep underground.

"Technical Aggression" is their 1987 Demo featuring five songs of fast and violent thrash metal that betrays the hardcore influence only in its speed and in the super-aggressive approach.
The LP version features 4 extra never heard before tracks recorded live at the CBGB's in 1987 with an incredibly good sound.
The CD version features the whole CBGB's show and two additional tracks recorded live in 1988, never heard before as well.

RS07 POWERTHRONE - Shadow knights 7" EP

Originally supposed to come out on Reinig Records (Night Demon, Bunker 66...), these are the very first recordings from Powerthrone from California. Galloping and shredding 1984 black/thrash, the rawness of SODOM ("In the sign of evil"-era) combined with the atonal riffing of early CELTIC FROST. The whole pace is almost punk in its crudity, the G.B.H. cover is probably not just a random choice. Pressing of 500 copies. All copies coming with 350 grams cardboard jacket, insert, outer plastic bag.

RS06 ZOLDIER NOIZ - Regression process LP

Zoldier Noiz from France have been active since 1999 and this is their second album after "Schizoid Reject" from 2009. This is some rousing old school metal at its best, raw thrash sometimes bordering crust and sometimes accelerating to neck-breaking speed. Harsh and throaty vocals and a general "fuck you all" attitude. Expect some unpolished analog-sounding production which is just perfect with this sound. Cd version on Unspeakable Axe. 100 copies on blue vinyl + handnumbered sticker, 400 on black vinyl, 5 test pressings (not for sale). All copies coming with 350 grams cardboard jacket, 250 grams cardboard insert, polylined inner sleeve, outer plastic bag.

Fans of MIDNIGHT will totally dig this release. 400 copies on black vinyl, 100 copies on clear vinyl + handnumbered sticker.

RS04 OUTRAGE - 1985 Demo(n)s LP

It's unbelievable how a band like Outrage from Germany hadn't been given the credit they truly deserve.

This Lp features their two 1985 demos in their entirety. They have broken up in 1987 after two more demos and have remained buried by time and dust till their reformation in 2004. Along with POISON this is a teutonic gem that must be present in your collection.
