about

The Ripper!!! Estonian-American rock band and powerhouse Soul Thrower re-imagines and revives this 1976 classic by Judas Priest. Soul Thrower preserves the original essence of the song, but takes liberties to transform and evolve it with modern rock intensity in their own style. True to their genre but unique in their own right, Soul Thrower shines with signature sounds built on fat, chunky, baritone guitars, and smooth grunge vocals with stacked harmonies. It's the perfect sonic blend to breathe new life into this age-old story. The Ripper is a tale of London's unidentified, brutal serial killer of 1888, Jack the Ripper, whose methods included gruesome disembowelment. Never turn your back on The Ripper.....

The Ripper
Origin: from the album "Sad Wings of Destiny" (1976)
by Judas Priest, written by Glenn Tipton

lyrics

THE RIPPER

YOU'RE IN FOR SURPRISE
YOU'RE IN FOR A SHOCK
IN LONDON TOWN STREETS
WHEN THERE'S DARKNESS AND FOG
WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT ME
AND YOU TURN YOUR BACK
I'LL ATTACK

I SMILE WHEN I'M SNEAKING
THROUGH SHADOWS BY THE WALL
I LAUGH WHEN I'M CREEPING
BUT YOU WON'T HEAR ME AT ALL
ALL HEAR MY WARNING
NEVER TURN YOUR BACK
ON THE RIPPER

YOU'LL SOON SHAKE WITH FEAR
NEVER KNOWING IF I'M NEAR
I'M SLY AND I'M SHAMELESS
NOCTURNAL AND NAMELESS
EXCEPT FOR "THE RIPPER"
OR IF YOU LIKE "JACK THE KNIFE"

ANY BACK ALLEY STREET
IS WHERE WE'LL PROBABLY MEET
UNDERNEATH A GAS LAMP
WHERE THE AIR'S COLD AND DAMP
I'M A NASTY SURPRISE
I'M A DEVIL IN DISGUISE
I'M A FOOTSTEP AT NIGHT
I'M A SCREAM OF THE FRIGHT
