Kurokunder split 7"

by Kurokuma & Under

supported by
Crypt Guard

Crypt Guard 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.

The Ninehertz Podcast A fantastic tribute to the original on the Kurokuma side, a paean to chaos on the other side from Under! Favorite track: The Tides of Time.
Reek Of STOOM thumbnail
Reek Of STOOM The Sheffield shamen conjure up a grisly feast of frequencies in "The Tides Of Time": a macabre deconstruction of melody driven by pulse-rate percussion and pickled arpeggios, fingering the entrails of filthy heavy Doom.
UNDER offer up their longest construct to date, the epic 'Abyssal Gigantism'. Fingernailed gouges of sludge embedded in tombs of psychedelic dread...seriously creepy, astonishing heavy and possessed of other-worldy vibrations....a stonewall Keeper!

"Take in all the oddball herb-permeated dolphin-lore, because this is why the unholy union between Ecco and Kurokuma makes so much sense. "The Tides of Time" sees the group take yet another step beyond the borders of a genre that can't contain them because they are explorers of the vast and heavy unknown. This is where they thrive, this is where they ascend to another plane through the trudging heaviness of their rhythmic pulse.

Under push and pull on "Abyssal Gigantism" and take the listener through unsettling twists and turns. Their utilization of harmonized vocals and unorthodox time signatures remains not just intact but becomes amplified by a blistering barrage of erratic tempo changes."

"This 7” leaves one impressed by the chutzpah of combining those two bands and the clever way both complement each other turning this split into a more than welcome stray from the
path of regular splits."

This split is fun but it’s also creative. Music needs people to be creative or it’ll fade into mediocrity like many a current pop act (sorry, I’m biased). Kurokuma’s groove has always been a big part of their appeal for me, while Under’s unapologetic noise is born out of true UK grit.
