The band formed in 2005, when a simple jam session began the making of their first album, “The Great Barrier Reefer.” Clocking in at 79 minutes and 23 seconds, The Great Barrier Reefer is a one track doom experimentation. The band released a very small amount of copies, and have yet to re-release the album since then.

In 2007, Bongripper released their second full-length album entitled, “Hippie KIller.” The 10-track album has found its way into many stoner fans’ libraries. Tracks such as Reefer Sutherland helped Hippie Killer receive a nomination for the stoner-sludge album of the year by Metalstorm.net.

    Satan Worshiping Doom and Hippie Killer are both so amazing. I can't decide which is better.

    to name your band Bongripper and not smoke weed would be a historical poser move for the ages. I only met w one of the guitarists in august. He was aggravated at the people who gave him a half ounce of fire explaining how their plane left the next morning. They smoke weed.

    Having heard all their shit I must say Hippie Killer is truly my shit. But all their stuff is incredible, no complaints regarding any of it. They we're disgusting live too, too much heavy.
