Genre-defying, lawless, joyfully sounding something like gnashing teeth and hang nails, falling in a bright crack between some kind of ritual and a broken pickup, RAAR is delighted to present 'Rippers Only' from Maryland-based multi-media artist and musician Walter Gross. Exactly 40 minutes of one-take wonders, this LP is not only a sonic feast but a demonstration of creative ethics, catharsis, self-expression and a deep longing to make something in direct retaliation to the mindless, consumer-driven ideologies of the modern music industry. Somehow, in that quest, the work produced manages to be at once ferocious, beautiful, banging, liberated. We hope you love this special album as much as we do.

i’ve been paying attention to egadz since monotony. not even sure how i got there.... 4 years later and i am still ADORING this album. the analog heaviness is what continues to move my heart.
