R!PSNORTER has been playing some intensely fast, aggressive and energized music since 1994. In a word, it's hardcore. It can be described as a blend of the band's roots in punk rock, its evolution to classic old school eighties-style hardcore infused with genres ranging from metal and industrial to rockabilly. The end result is some time-enduring hardcore and hardcore-hybrid music. This band does not stick to one overall formula for music.
