Aberdeen-based Speed/Black Metal act Scotland Hellripper is getting ready to put out what will be the project's third full-length album, titled "Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags", on the 17th of February via industry veterans Peaceville Records. Meanwhile, the album's title track is now up for listening, check it out:

 


As described by the label:

‘Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags’ - Hellripper’s third studio album - establishes a new threshold of excellence and raises the bar further over ‘The Affair of the Poisons’, with an opus standing at the crossroads between the sound that Hellripper has become known for and a whirlwind of different influences up until now yet to be explored, resulting in James McBain’s most personal and diverse work to date.

With a greatly expanded scope to the tracks, incorporating more epic and melodic blackened anthems alongside the high-speed metal attack and blistering solos, ‘Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags’ marks a new highpoint for the band.

Inspired by the landscapes and legends of the Scottish highlands, McBain explores the darker side of Scottish history & folklore - the title itself taken from a line in the Robert Burns poem, ‘Address to the Deil’ - as well as including references to clan culture (including his own) throughout the album.

For example, one of the tracks (‘The Cursed Carrion Crown’) is based on the legend of ‘Sawney Bean’ and the Bean Clan (a spelling variation of “McBain'') and tells the story of a family of cannibals that lived in a cave and committed various gruesome acts.


"Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags" clocks in at just over 43 minutes in length, and features the following tracklist:

  1. The Nuckelavee
  2. I, The Deceiver
  3. Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags
  4. Goat Vomit Nightmare
  5. The Cursed Carrion Crown
  6. The Hissing Marshes
  7. Poison Womb (The Curse of the Witch)
  8. Mester Stoor Worm


The album features cover art by prolific American artist Adam Burke:
