MUSIC NEWS: Hellripper Releases New Single ‘The Affair Of The Poisons’
Hellripper have released their new single The Affair Of The Poisons, the title-track from their forthcoming album.
“The song takes inspiration from a series of events that occurred in 17th Century France,” explains James MacBain. “Possession, witchcraft, child sacrifice & poisonings were at the heart of a large-scale investigation conducted during the reign of the Sun King (Louis XIV) after an extensive plot was unearthed within the court of Versailles, targeting members of the aristocracy and the King himself in order to gain power and influence; the scandal exploded when it was revealed that the royal favourite herself was partaking in black masses and had allegedly poisoned a younger rival to win back the King’s favour.”
The Affair Of The Poisons is due for release on 9th October 2020 via Peaceville, available to pre-order HERE.
