RIPPED was conceived and brought to fruition by songwriters Sandra Olender & Moody with their demo ""Emotions"" that attracted their new manager Gerry Young of Current Records & Management (Parachute Club, Martha & the Muffins). With the guidance of an experienced veteran of the international music scene on their side and a strong repertoire of new rock/pop music, Ripped secured their first record deal with Sextant Records / EMI Distibution in early 2002.

Bloodshot was given a great welcome by Canadian radio. ""Make it Happen"", produced by the pop rock legend Mike Hanson of Glass Tiger, made it on over 20 radio stations across the country . This was followed up with the great success of ""Misery"", produced by rock legend Jamie Stewart (The Cult), which was the 2nd stepping stone of this new rock phenomenon. Video was also good to RIPPED. ""The Haunting"" was on rotation at Edge TV and was used as part of the final credits for the feature film ""Insight of Evil"" (2003) by Slasher Films.

Leap ahead to 2004, Ripped hook up with producer Ashton Price of Morph Productions (Kazzer, Sony Publishing) to embark on their greatest adventure. This was the beginning of ""Blow Your Mind"", the sophomore release of Ripped. Once again, Sextant Records is hot to grab the new sounds and signs them to a second record.
The sound has changed for Ripped ....they bring more harmonies, bigger guitars, additional melodies, new keys and special effects that are inspired and compared to Garbage, Evanescence & No Doubt. They now attracted big time producers to finish the mixing and give that big radio sound. Dave ""Rave"" Ogilvie ( Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie, Skinny Puppy) and Dan Brodbeck (The Salads, Jersey, Delores O'Riodan) did the mixing for the singles ""Show Me"" , ""Anodyne"" & ""A Daily Ritual"" . These songs have a unique sound and production that is ready for the New rock & Hit Radio of 2005.
A special bonus on the new album is the band's cover of the classic ""Call Me"" by Blondie.... they have taken the song and made it their own... creating a hard rock, gothic version that has people talking and saying this is the next break through cover/remake of 2005. It is a real treat to hear the sultry vocals of Sandi, cutting guitars of Moody, rythmic bass of Attila and ""Mind Blowing"" production of Ashton Price in this must hear rendition of one of the great New Wave songs of the 80's.
