Remember two decades back in time: What was Germany best known for in the hard sector? Yes, right, Teutonmetal a la Helloween and Thrash Metal quality Champions League. That German bands still got it is regularly shown by “old-timers” like Kreator, Sodom or Destruction, but also by younger bands like Dew-Scented. Also seriously new blood exists, as the quintet named Cripper from Hanover prove. All by themselves they publish with “Freak Inside” their successful debut record, the musical direction lies somewhere between technically skilled Thrash Metal to Straight-In-Your-Face-Thrash. The fact that the vocals of front woman Britta Görtz remind me of a person named Mille Petrozza from time to time, is worth a half point more.
