NEKROGOBLIKON’s John Goblikon has an announcement for the fantasy tribes of Europe, a warning shot to troll poseurs, pirate imposters, ghouls, elves, gnolls, orcs, hobbits and gollums:
“The goblins of the U S of A are invading, and a challenge is issued: let there be much music-making, quenching of thirst and jousting of wenches.
To the so-called “troll” bands of Europe:
You took the throne from us. And now we want it back. The eggs are broken, and there’s no repairing them now. You’re in over your head. Here’s a little fact about thrones you might not know:
All thrones belong to John Goblikon.
Maybe you’ve heard of him. He’s an internet celebrity. A cunning warrior. An insurance salesman. The quintessential All-American goblin. That’s four thrones already. Oh, and he’s the nefarious acquaintance of Nekrogoblikon. Nekro-WHO-blikon?!
Nekrogoblikon. You know the rest, I’m sure. You probably just misheard me the first time.”
John Goblikon hereby summons all trolls, pirates, elves, witches, orcs, gnolls, etc. to challenge you to a series of feats:
“Mortiis, I challenge you to a game of Connect 4, because you don’t look good at math. You remind me of myself, but with fewer friends.
Finntroll, let me remind you in case you forgot: GOBLINS ARE BETTER THAN TROLLS. I’ve already won whatever I was about to challenge you to.
Alestorm, I challenge you to a game of “kill the pirate,” also known as arm-wrestling. We shall see which scoundrel is stronger, goblin or pirate (clue: it’s not the pirate).
Troll – a band called Troll but who aren’t actually trolls? What is this impostery? I challenge you to drink. Only trolls could come close to keeping up with a goblin.
Trollfest – *see Finntroll
Children of Bodom – I don’t know what kind of creature a “bodom” is, but it sounds wimpy. I challenge you to a game of checkers. I love checkers.”
You heard the goblin. You’re toast.”
NEKROGOBLIKON are seizing Europe in February as part of the Kerrang! Tour 2014 with Crossfaith, Baby Godzilla and Limp Bizkit.
