Portland, OR quartet R.I.P.
are streaming their forthcoming debut in full all this week over at Metal Injection
. The band’s head banging album In The Wind
is available to hear and share HERE
hit the road yet again this week for a few shows with new labelmates The Well
as well as Rise Above Records’ Beastmaker
, see complete dates below.
Operating on the belief that heavy metal didn’t come from the forest or beam down from outer space, but rather that it crawled up out of the sewer and writhed to life in the grit and grime of the streets, the four rock ‘n’ roll freaks of R.I.P. call their sound “Street Doom” and spread the message with heavy touring across the United States. Obsessed with death and disgusted with the scene, they dragged their knuckles into the studio in 2016 and excavated a debut LP dedicated to fear and trembling, calling it In The Wind.
R.I.P. is defined by fast, regressive riffs, terrified vocals, live shows akin to near-death experiences, and steadfast adherence to the notion that doom isn’t how slow or de-tuned you can play, but the combination of fear, death, and leather. In The Wind is just the right level of down ‘n’ dirty guttural rock that cuts and chews with raw fury.
In The Wind will be available everywhere on LP, CD and download on December 9th, 2016 via RidingEasy Records.
