We're under no illusions here — this music is ridiculous — but we'll be damned if it isn't the most interesting thing out there at the moment.

Steel Mogu is dark, oppressive, and unrelenting.

Clear Tamei and Steel Mogu deepen the sound and lore of Iglooghost, though hopefully his next full-length album will do so to a greater extent.

"Memorable" isn't really a relevant word with this kind of music; you press play, live through it, come out the other end either exhilarated or exhausted.

It is an awesome EP from Iglooghost. I really don't get why he isn't very famous, as I actually think he has some of the best producer mindsets for creativity.
