AtrociousSal Randomly found this band and decided to give this a try. This is probably the best thing to happen in my 2020. The riffs are awesome, this album is easily scoring a place on my list of favorites! The title track Black Arts & Alchemy... man I love it sooo much! Highly recommend it. The main riff is dissonant but moderately, it gives it this distinctive type personality and I absolutely adore it! Favorite track: Black Arts & Alchemy.

about

From the depths of the cacophanous den of the Horned One, Hellripper storm out of the tomb with a barrage of speed, fury, venom, and blasphemy strong enough to bring the pious to their knees. Relentless in its attack and focused in its approach, Black Arts and Alchemy is a an exercise in Heavy Metal orthodoxy with enough extremity to make for an infectious cocktail of unrighteousness. The riffs are malicious, the rhythms are pounding, and the vocals are ripping with power and conviction. This release wastes no time beating you to a pulp, and before you can gather your wits enough to understand the might of The Beast, you are abandoned and left in the chambers of the master, a bloody wretched heap. Join in and lay your soul at the feet of the Alchemist.

Track Name: All Hail the Goat
Lay the cunt on the altar
With stone dagger – ready to strike
The rites of ritual slaughter
Evoke the darkness with infernal might

From below he will rise
Damnation nearing with invocation
Angels fall from the skies
Bring forth unholy and violent demise

All hail the goat

The foul spirit brings darkness
Spread the Devil's flame – Crush their faith
Embrace demonic catharsis
Summon the legions to annihilate

From below he will rise
Damnation nearing with invocation
Angels fall from the skies
Bring forth unholy and violent demise

All hail the goat
Track Name: Decrepit Christ
Let the bastard hang, watch the bastard die
Subjugation through torture - Messiah denied
Spill the holy blood – The blasphemous assault
Degrade the feeble impostor, mock the Lord and revolt

Upon the hills of Golgotha
He trusted, so let God deliver him now!
The death of the prophet
Betrayed and condemned by the court to…

Hang upon the cross - Decrepit Christ
Die upon the cross – Decrepit Christ

Scourge the naked flesh, hear the bastard cry
Sacred blood paints the ground – The Saviour defied
Reject the false revelation, the bearer of thorns
Under the burning sun, pierce the side of the corpse,

Upon the hills of Golgotha
He trusted, so let God deliver him now!
The death of the prophet
Betrayed and condemned by the court to…

Hang upon the cross - Decrepit Christ
Die upon the cross – Decrepit Christ
Track Name: Black Arts & Alchemy
The disciples of Lucifer gather and descend upon the kirk
This coven brings hell
The conjugation sings seven deadly hymns
Vociferations of vicious spell

Bring the fires of Hades
Black magick summons the storms
From the sea, rise the devils
Sedition, treason and scorn

Black arts & alchemy

With nightfall comes sinister vengeance and hellfire upon the crown
This coven brings death
The conflagration throttles the divine
Maledictions wreak torment so grotesque

Bring the fires of Hades
Black magick summons the storms
From the sea, rise the devils
Sedition, treason and scorn

Black arts & alchemy

Bring the fires of Hades
Black magick summons the storms
From the sea, rise the devils
Sedition, treason and scorn

Black arts!
Track Name: Headless Angels
Feel the fire! Fire! Fire!
We toast the blood of the pious tonight
Throw them all on the pyre!
Behead the clerics and defile with delight

Crush the Gods under cloven hoof
The horned one reigns supreme
Baphomet set us free!

In the name of the devil
We are the envoys of Hell
Into the valleys of Hades, the Christians have fell
Headless Angels pave the ground

Death comes rabid! Rabid! Rabid!
Demons ripping the bastards apart
The rise of evil, barbaric!
Invert your crosses and submit to the dark

Crush the Gods under cloven hoof
The horned one reigns supreme
Baphomet set us free!

In the name of the devil
We are the envoys of Hell
Into the valleys of Hades, the Christians have fell
Headless Angels pave the ground
