A few questions - interview with brutal death metal band from Australia - DRIPPED.

Answered Ewan (guitar), thank you!

DRIPPED - Rituals of the Red Sun (2023):

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play etc.?

My name is Ewan and Im on Guitar, Brad - Guitar, Will - Vocals, Jared - Bass, Vlad - Session Drums. We are Dripped and we are from Perth, Western Australia. We play Brutal Death Metal. Or Slamming Brutal Death to some.

Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

The new album was recorded not long after the EP had released, I had written most of it already but had to wait sometime before Vlad was able to record drums. I did the Guitars and Bass, and recorded Wills vocals also at my house. I then sent the album to Sam Marwick at Slam Machine Studios for Mixing and Mastering.

How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?

Im not sure exactly how many copies were produced, but the album so far is only available on cd, digital downloads and streaming on all platforms. Our label (Ungodly Ruins Productions) is situated in Russia, so times are hard for them right now as far as merch production goes.

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with?

Will is responsible for most of the lyrics, I wrote a couple and helped edit the rest. We were mainly focused on the rise and fall of humanity, and the need to worship some form of monolithic totems for no good reason. Very dystopian approach to civilisation and religion and the need to reproduce as a race.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?

Our friend, Vad, from Ungodly Ruins Productions designed the logo for us. He also takes care of our graphics, while I run our own merch site and socials. Social media has been vital to promoting our music, though it can be overwhelming with many other bands to contend with as far as promotion goes. Im on the fence when it comes to spotify, its very handy for getting our music out there, but I think bands can benefit from Bandcamp more.

Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you?

Ungodly Ruins Productions (Russia). I have worked with this label for 10 years now so I feel a sense of loyalty to Vad and his label. Ive had previous albums released with Ungodly so it was just right to do so. Its been a great learning curve for both of us I think. Im very satisfied with Vads work, and hopefully the current status in Russia will dissipate sooner than later so we can continue this great partnership.

Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

So many bands to choose from, Gorgasm, Visceral Bleeding, Spawn of Possession, Cannibal Corpse, Cryptopsy.. Inspirations for Dripped though were Inherit Disease, Putridity, Disgorge, Defeated Sanity, Disentomb, Molested Divinity and Devangelic.. basically any brutal death metal band.

Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

I didnt really need to. I think I sent 3 songs to Vad at Ungodly and he was immediately interested in releasing the ep. And so far the response to Dripped has been amazing.

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best?

About 15 gigs now we've played. All in Australia so far of course. Clubs or festivals we dont mind either. We just finished up a tour with our friends in Putrescent Seepage from South Australia, we definitely played some of our best shows whilst with them, and probably one of worst haha.

What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?

Weve just released an album and completed a tour, so we will pump the brakes a little bit as far as performing goes. But I am well into the next EP for Dripped. So hopefully not too long between releases this time. We would love to travel overseas sometime soon also, maybe we can get in touch with promoters and organise some trips/tours in the future?!

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?

People can find us on instagram or facebook if they need to contact us. Or at

Thanx for the interview.

Thank you!! \m/ - Ewan
