So awesome to hear such a cool song about such a legendary Fighting Fantasy Gamebook. Evokes such memories of good times. The other songs aren't half bad either. Great stuff, lads.
Favorite track: Citadel of Chaos.
"Whoever you are and whatever you’re doing, chances are Groan are having a better time. The UK-based chicanery rockers are at it again…pumping out a thick groove and ’80s metal gang shout hook and every bit living up to their stated “67% true doom” ethic." - The Obelisk
"Those riffs; those wails; I want to laugh, but goddamnit this is going to get stuck in my head." - No Clean Singing
"Although this is just a 5 song EP, it packs more of a punch than most full lengths I have heard this year and I hope this is a taste of GROAN to come because they sounding larger and tighter than ever." - When Planets Collide
"Discard an emptied can of Red Stripe into a time portal set for Monsters of Rock at Donnington in 1984 and whichever stage it lands on you’ll doubtless find that band’s influence in Groan. And yet “influence” is the key word here; Groan are by no means a glorified ’80s tribute act." - Fuzz + Hellfire Magazine
"Okay yeah I guess I do sort of like this." - Cat Jones' mum

Once again Trippy and the gang have come up with some sonic pleasure worthy of anyone’s collection. Deep rumbling bass drives melodic guitars one minute and the next……….well; think ‘Wall-o-Sound’. Once more these guys pull it from the bag to produce another brilliant Stoner Rock album from left field. Different yet familiar. These guys should be bigger than they are. Harry Harrison

META(L). Any band that can deliver on the doomed-out premise of a song called "Witchfinder General Finder" (not only lyrically, but musically) deserves massive praise. I'd never thought of stoner/doom as party music until I heard this track. Must be the heavy NWOBHM influence. Killer vocals, too. HaroldAllnut

SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Harry Harrison
