[Review of live Mushroom Giant show] “I start to wonder if anyone’s gonna sing and realize I don’t even care. It’s like a soundtrack for when you leave your body. I nearly go into a trance. Mushroom Giant are shaking me out of my coma – interspersing metal shredding and catatonic blackness – fast and loud – effectively, scaring the shit out of me in the process. At least it was a slow burn up til this point. Conniption-inducing projections flash like strobe lights…” - FASTER LOUDER

“Crescendos are used to great effect throughout Kuru to build tension and elevate mood … The gentle, light-filled first part to Kuru is just the calm before the storm. The track Kuru holds a thunder-filled Sabbath drone while Poor Tom is truly the eye of the storm.” - BEAT MAGAZINE ‘Album of the Week’ (20/2/08)

“Kuru is a truly deep album, one not easily judged after a single listen, but one that becomes more rewarding with each listen. Give it the time and space it needs to show itself to you, and the album’s beauty will make itself evident.” - OZ PROG ‘Featured Artist’

“Their sound sits right on the line between rock and metal, spacey and earthy … great variety in the album, probably best shown in “Poor Tom,” which quickly switches from shred metal to spacey ambience again and again. Easily the heaviest song on the album” - THE SILENT BALLET (USA)
