On the heels of celebrating four years of booking some of the finest metal, punk, and otherwise aggressive music in Atlanta, Amos Rifkin of A. Rippin’ Production is taking the company to the next level. Rifkin and Cody Martin, the latter of whom is the mastermind behind Mass Destruction Metal Fest, are expanding the A. Rippin’ team by adding graphic designer Van Bassman (Buzzards of Fuzz) and writer/videographer Mark McPheeters (ex-skullsnbones.com writer) to the fold.

Bassman, according to Rifkin, “has a good eye for promotion, generating original content, and making videos that keep events on people’s minds. McPheeters,” he adds, “runs the website and helps drive traffic away from social media toward our website. It’s becoming a well-oiled machine.”

Mass Destruction takes over the Loft at Center Stage Nov. 2-3, with a lineup featuring performances by Nasty Savage, the Accused AD, Terrorizer, Kommandant, and more.
