Rippikoulu was formed in 1990 in Valkeakoski, Finland. Originally a punk/metal hybrid, but as a few band members changed they evolved into a metal band. Rippikoulu played music which is difficult to define mixing genres to their very own unique brand of slow punk fuelled death metal and were the first death metal band to sing in Finnish. They released their first demo Mutaation Aiheuttama Ssäinen Mätäneminen in 1992 follwed by the now classic demo Musta seremonia demo in 1993. Both demos were distributed and sold worldwide. When the band’s guitarist Marko Henriksson died in 1995, Rippikoulu was on hold for two years. Comeback attempts were made later but it wasn’t the same without Marko and therefore they ultimately split-up. After re-releasing Musta Seremonia through Svart Records in 2010 the band decided to re-united is currently active again with their most memorable performance being Finnish Death Metal Maniacs Fest in 2015 and 2017.
