Ripper  


Ripper was a Texas-based horror metal band who managed to release one low-budget album before disappearing into obscurity. Often such albums are rather useless and best left alone, but And The Dead Shall Rise was a guilty pleasure, as their style, while nothing fancy, was actually pretty effective, yielding some fine songs, even if their image was a bit on the cheesy side. And one can't help but love a band whose female singer screams lines like "Don't tie me down -- tie me up!". Long gone but not forgotten.

Update: guitarist Rob Graves decided to put together a new version of the band in 2005, with various members coming and going in the interim. A new album, The Dead Have Rizen, was released in early 2009.
