Rotting Kingdom – A Deeper Shade of Sorrow (Godz ov War)

I reviewed Rotting Kingdom’s three track EP back in early 2018 (remember those relatively sane times, readers?), giving it a hefty 8/10, and wanting to hear more. Well, with just a couple of years in the old time-bank, the Kentuckian… Continue Reading →
