Ripple Music Waves! Second Coming of Heavy Chapter 8, BANG, Holy Grove and Bandcamp Subscription Service!


Hard to believe that we’re nearing the end.  Planned as a 10 chapter series of splits featuring some of the best of the underground, unheard bands, the latest installment Second Coming of Heavy series hits the streets Saturday May 5 at 6 am PST.  Featuring the ballsy, Motorhead-desert storm of San Diego O.G. Stoner rockers, Ride the Sun, and the heavy blues of Germany’s The Trikes, this chapter (like all the chapters) comes in the extremely limited Tri-color Resurrection Edition, The glorious splatter Risen OBI with individually numbered OBI strips, and the pristine Ascension Edition.  These always go fast.  So pop over tomorrow at 6 am PST to and claim yours. 


Based upon the outrageous, glowing reviews we’ve seen for The Best of BANG, it’s stunning no one compiled the best tracks from this legendary 70’s proto-metal band before.  But they hadn’t.  Fortunately, the band trusted us to do it.  Out now on 2xLP with gatefold full of pics and liner notes, as well as 4 panel digipack, Best of BANG brings together all the tracks that brought BANG into the Decibel Magazine “Heavy Metal Hall of Fame.”  In stock now at


We saw Oregon’s Holy Grove when they buzzed through the Bay Area on tour with Wasted Theory, and man, they didn’t disappoint.  Stunningly heavy, intricate and melodic, with the vocal prowess of a banshee, Holy Grove left the entire audience decimated.   Ripple is proud to present the first US pressing of their debut album, no stunning pinwheel vinyl.  A new album is coming, but this will tide you over nicely until then.  Only about 20 of these left (and black versions and CD). This one will not be repressed.  So stop on by and grab one.


Come join us and be a waverider!  Our Bandcamp Subscription service has been called by many “the best value on the internet.”   Subscribe via bandcamp, and get every album we release the day they are released via bandcamp digital service.   And if you want physical LP’s and CD’s (even the limited editions) you’ll get a 15% discount across the board.   Your subscription greatly helps us to continue to put out the music you love, and you get a great deal.  So pop on over and join the ranks of the waveriders.
