Lindsay chats with James McBain, better known as Hellripper; “Scotland’s King of the Arcane Mosh” (- Metal Hammer). They chat about being a one man band, influences, the Scottish Alternative Music Awards and a hilariously unfortunate elevator incident at the Damnation Festival.

James says on his sound: “Black speed metal; that’s how I describe it. I’ve heard it described as Black Metal, Thrash Metal, Metal Punk, Black Thrash, whatever. I call it Speed Metal mainly because it’s fast, yeah there’s a lot of different influences.”
