Ribspreader is a Swedish death metal band.


Ribspreader was formed in June 2002 by Rogga Johansson and Andreas Karlsson, both also of Paganizer. The band's debut album features Swedish musician and producer Dan Swanö on drums and lead guitar. Ribspreader split up shortly after the release of the second album, Congregating the Sick, because the band was not able to find a suitable drummer. Ribspreader reformed in 2007, and has released three albums since then.
