“five songs of down home punishment. No apologies. Few melodies. Just sonic Southern un-hospitality.” – Decibel Magazine
“a must-have for fans of bands ranging from Eyehategod to Fight Amp.” – Metal Sucks
“neo-monolithic noise rock that will essentially crush you and simultaneously pulverize your facial bones.” – Sputnik Music
“The songs are appallingly catchy and “Blue Blood,” in particular, drives its hooks in as deeps as barbed porcupine quills, refusing to be dislodged. Rarely has an act of musical self-immolation been so enjoyable.” – 9/10 Exclaim
“one of the most promising members of North American noise rock” – Brooklyn Vegan
“ass-kicking, riffy Am-Rep style songwriting” – Noisey
“truly ugly music. The Atlanta-based power trio are rightfully compared to the noise dealers that inhabited the late, great Amphetamine Reptile label in the ‘90s” – Diffuser.FM
“a cascade of riffs and fuzz that could match even the slowest, lowest doom band in terms of sheer heaviness.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
