It seems as though the tradition of releasing demos on tape or cdr is dying out, now we're in the digital age. Thankfully though, digital is fine when you're writing a review and I've spoken out in the past on social media about hobbyist journalists expecting (and asking for!) physical copies of releases to review and the cost involved with that expectation. Sheffield's Kurokuma are a bit of a rarity, as they play a style of heavy music that stands out amidst Sheff's more hardcore leaning. This two-track demo was released in November 2014 and has already helped them to secure slots alongside Fvnerals, Skeletonwitch and Conan to name a few! They're also in the progress of writing a new EP, so this review may be well timed.
