GOLLUM are currently working on the follow-up to their critically-lauded The Core full-length, release via Rotten Records in 2009. About.com called the release, “… the most complex, sonic-scraped albums of the year,” while Way Too Loud noted: “music this different that’s able to fire on all cylinders is the equivalent of expanding one’s mind without the drugs.” To check out a demo sample of new tune, “One Guarantee,” point your browser HERE.
