Kurokuma go beyond the borders of sludge and transcend into the vast and heavy unknown. This is where they thrive, this is where they ascend to another plane through trudging heaviness and rhythmic pulse, while Under send you splashing into the depths below whith eerie passages of melancholia and pure noisey bliss. And all of it to the backdrop of the '90s videogame hero Ecco the dolphin. Just glorious.

Listening to Goblinsmoker is like having the Toad King Himself sitting on my chest, with His goblin minions peeling off the skin from my face with rusty, little knives and gouging my eyes out. He then spits acid into my bleeding eye sockets and lets me rot, because I'm not worthy of being smoked in His Unholy Cauldronpipe.
What a delight! atom_brain
