The observe additionally finds the band establishing an prolonged universe inside their discography, bringing again the “Purple River Mining Firm” that had beforehand appeared within the track ‘Diamond Stuff’.

“That night, with zero signal of their buddies, an enormous feast is laid on by the mine’s cantankerous Captain, who performs a protracted speech encouraging all to indulge as that is to be the employees’ final night time earlier than returning to their households. With good motive for suspicion, the protagonists feign gluttony and eat as little as humanly potential. Sadly, as they later discover, even that’s not fairly sufficient. Evening falls, they conceal and because the staff fall comatose the wardens, overseen by the Captain, make preparations to pump their poisoned stomachs. It seems the aim of the mine is to obtain an extra of human abdomen acid used within the manufacturing of a bastardized blood-red wine, bought and cherished within the area.”
Persevering with, he explains: “After the broader conspiracy is revealed and upon realizing their buddies should be lengthy gone, the companions determine they have to destroy the ability. A spanner plugs the works, nevertheless, as one of many males experiences delicate results of the poison and the manufacturing of acid in his abdomen goes into overdrive. As his chest actually bubbles he says what could also be his remaining goodbyes to his companion and the opposite man is left to do the heavy lifting alone.”
“He succeeds and as they flee, arm in arm, the demon Captain erupts from the burning embers and curses the 2 males to the hell of crippling acid reflux disorder for the remainder of their days,” Picton concludes. “They see no motive to fret although, as they’re certain to return dwelling hailed as heroes.”
