What happens when you put a bunch of bloodthirsty, music-loving goblins together? Well, a lot of disembowelment, but also a lot of catchy tunes. Formed six millennia ago, and practicing only every other leap year on a full moon, the band has perfected their brand of crushing .

On a cold, dreary winter night in July of 2006, Nicholas Von Doom and Tim were in the woods engaging in general tomfoolery when they stumbled upon a mysterious cardboard box with their names crudely inscribed with a Sharpie® Permanent Marker. Inside they found a letter handwritten in blood instructing them to write and record an album about the destruction of mankind at the hands of small, hideous creatures. Additionally, it mentioned that failure to complete this task would result in gruesome death. The letter was signed, “goblins”.

Frightened and still a little buzzed, Nicholas and Tim immediately ran back into their cave and began frantically writing melodies and rhythms using an assortment of straws, whistles, and wooden spoons. The amalgamation of these sounds and Von Doom’s indecipherable yelling soon became known to the world as NEKROGOBLIKON. The collection of music created that night was eventually named Goblin Island and was unleashed upon the world on January 1st, 2007. After receiving much Internet acclaim and a couple Grammys, Nicholas and Tim were relieved, assuming the goblins must have been satisfied. However, a couple years later another cardboard box appeared nearby their cave.

    It was just a matter of listening. Now I like the other songs too on the EP.

    Don't like Goblin Island. Love Stench. Power seems like a mixed back. I Love Friends (In Space) and Powercore but the others are kind of boring at least on few first listens.

    Surprisingly enough I like the Power EP better than anything off of Stench. This direction is amazing. Lots of groove and nice clean vocals.

    These guys were amazing at Download. Glad a friend tipped me off about them otherwise I'd have missed them. One of my festival highlights.

    Wow, I'm suprised... Where's the "I LIKED NEKROGOBLIKON BEFORE THEY WERE COOL!" crowd?
