A Rippin’ Production celebrates four years of darkness at the Earl
Sadistic Vision, Withered, Death of Kings, and more unleash a full-on shred fest
In the year of our lord 2018, the prophecy foretold of the rising Atlanta metal promotions titan A Rippin’ Production celebrating four years of booking nights as black as sackcloth, scored by the gnarliest black metal, death metal, and thrash-punk in the land. That day of darkness is here. Two days, actually. Over the weekend of Aug. 3-4, A Rippin’ Production takes over the Earl with a mini-metal fest punctuated by savage riffs, helicopter headbanging, and all things abominable. Sadistic Vision, Withered (pictured above), Malformity and Hollowed Idols play Fri., Aug. 3. Deceased, Savage Master, Death of Kings, and Sadistic Ritual take the stage Sat., Aug. 4. It’s $10-$12 for the Friday night massacre. $12-$15 for the Saturday night slaughter. If your mind and body can handle the whiplash fury, two-night passes are available for $20 (adv.), $24 (door). Bring ear plugs, bring nose plugs, and say your prayers. It’s bound to get heavy in the pit.
