"The band lavishly gifts us with larger-than-life melodies and godlike riffs, embracing the future through the past! "
"Some perfect imperfect rough ‘n’ ready noise for a generation of angry, hard-hitting noise-alt-rock packed with raging guitars and post-punk vocals that will appeal to fans of Basement, Interpol and/or A Place To Bury Strangers. This is energy, and anger in its purest, most valid form."
