Grimoire Records presents the caustic, eponymous debut EP from Pittsburgh-based outfit RIPARIAN. Featuring the rhythm section of former outfit Wrought Iron, the band packs five tracks of totally grimy, weird, and filth-soaked death into a dense, twenty-five-minute release.

Since their formation, RIPARIAN’s sound has coalesced into an intense entity, infusing a foundation of classic death metal with technical time signature manipulation, a bit of crushing grindcore brute force, with elements of doom and dark atmospherics infiltrating the mix, recommended if you like Mithras, Defeated Sanity, Gorerotted.

RIPARIAN is: Nick Tupi (drums), Dan Martin (guitar), Rob Grisly (vocals), Lou Snyder (guitar/vocals), and Brooks (bass).
