“This is a perfect example of a band making good on their live promise…This is essential listening for riff-worshipers everywhere and cannot come highly-rated enough – 10/10.” – SonicAbuse
“Red-eyed purists should definitely take a big hit.” – Kerrang!
“The sheer volume of the band’s live show is captured here, but clear as a bell. We’ve said before that Kurokuma can smell fear. With this release they are holding up the bloody heads of their enemies. On horseback.” – ninehertz
“Dope Rider is a delightful blend of gritty sludge and kaleidoscopic psychedelia from one of the most integral cogs in the Steel City’s doom inner circle.” – Astral Noize
“The real lesson here is how to take a riff and slow it down to its most threatening tone whilst still being recognisable as a six stringed guitar, and to then take that and repeatedly drive it into the audiences skulls, preferably from the base of the spine upward.” – Real Gone
“Zombie driven bulldozer assault.” – Shadebeast Records
