Metal From NL

MetalFromNL-ENGThe second review of Rapid Germination has arrived, written by Nicky from Metal From NL. A score of 85 out of 100! A quote:
“STURP blows me away with this CD. I am absolutely very impressed. It is damn hard to write instrumental music without being boring or overcomplicated. STURP presents us a piece of music that may be for the trained ear, but thoughtfully constructed and absolutely unique in the Netherlands.”
