You hear the scrape of a blade along the damp cellar wall behind you, as a scaly tentacle slowly wraps around your ankle... can you escape the clutches of the Oblong Box? Sinister sonic craftsmanship is unearthed in eight tracks of dungeon dwelling audio. "Premature Burial" compiles various tracks from out-of-print releases, split cassettes and compilations spanning 2004 to 2007. We dare you to retain control of your mind as infernal frequencies attack your screaming brain!
