“This band’s commitment to the total rockist blitzkrieg aesthetic is a noble thing to hear in this watery pop-ridden age and the now-capacity crowd let go of them with loud reluctance.” – LA Record
“the overall unsettling feeling recalls the post-punk jaggedness of God and the State and Anus the Menace, mixed with hints of Christian Death gloom and Ian Curtis phrasing.” – LAWeekly
“The experimental post-punk outfit serves up big, mean guitars, screamed vocals, and old-fashioned intensity. Along the way, they mix in jangly melodies, complex percussion, and even the occasional saxophone moment.” – LAMag.com
“What transpired on stage that evening was a bit of a phenomenon that I am frankly at a loss to effectively describe. ” – The Art of LA
