The acclaimed ongoing series returns now with Chapter Eight. The first chapter in the Second Coming series sold of it's editions in mere hours, now comes the eighth installment in this ten-part series, bringing you the best of the underground heavy rock bands.

Chapter Eight features killer San Diego legendary stoner band, Ride the Sun and Germany's The Trikes, each band plowing through one side of the finest heavy psych, stoner, doom, rock that we could find. Ride the Sun are O.G. stoner rock legends in San Diego, dormant for too long, now roaring back with 5 BRAND NEW cuts of motorhead-infused, stoner terror. The Trikes have been on Ripple's radar for a very long time with their passionate take on retro-70's inspired heavy, tripped out blues.

Each chapter comes in 3 editions, strictly limited to a maximum of 100 copies pressed with no repress. Beautiful artwork by Ghost Town Graphics

"Over the last three years or so, we’ve been lucky enough to be able to review the Second Coming Of Heavy albums. A series of split records that are designed to showcase some of the best bands you might not have heard of. RTS are the first out of the blocks and their five are greasy, dirty, oil soaked Motorhead-ish fun. The Trikes understand the pain of being born out of time. “Sordid Love” is late 60’s riffery from start to finish. Proto metal in the vein of Blue Cheer, and blues is meant to be played like Cream after all. 8/10" Maximum Volume.
