Mullet Thar be black magic in this sludge!
Do not insult this EP by playing through laptop speakers!
Crank some real speakers, and if you aint got them, jack this into your amp. Play it loud and scar your soul.
Unexpectedly huge for such a new band (sh**s on so many newer big releases), like letting a black bear loose in your living room. Favorite track: Dark Triad.

As the light fades to a deeper aqueous twilight, a din grows louder. That friends, is the sound of Medusa Crush Recordings newer entrants to the realm of heavy in Kurokuma. This trio will decimate all comers with the necessary energy required to satisfy all areas of doom, sludge, and even psychedelic drone, with many tribal patterns and tones weaving it all in place.

"Is 'Prog-doom/sludge/metal' a genre yet? If not, Kurokuma have just invented it. 'Advorsus' is the new EP from these Sheffield based atomsmashers, and contained within it's 3 tracks are enough weight, chops and ideas to make so called bigger bands scratch their heads and say "why didn't I think of that?!"
