The only comment I could think to sum up Sunk Loto’s debut EP ‘Society Anxiety’ (And their full length album Big Picture Lies in 2000 for that matter) was that it was predictable. There wasn’t much in the way of pushing the envelope song wise, and while the nu-metal angle is now a bit contrived, it was a sound that typified the time.
Three years on and the band are back with a vengeance. Gone is the pained soft rock approach of their debut, and in steps a bold step in anger and frustration to create something quite different altogether.
The percussion and guitar feedback that opens ‘5 Years Of Silence’ is unlike anything Sunk Loto have produced before, while Jason Brown’s vocal performance is nothing short of inciting a riot with his savage performance. ‘Fall Apart’ follow closely on the same design, but brings more of the bands trademark melodic aspect to the fore, while ‘Empty And Alone’ and ‘Inside’ do exactly what isn’t expected and hit back even harder without missing a beat.
Shades of Sunk Loto’s old atmospherics creep into the beginning of ‘Help’, but it only serves to give a brief respite to the drive that fuel the bands song writing these days. The moody interlude does drift in and out throughout the track, and it works without giving into the usual amalgamation of schizophrenic tempos normally associated with such a mix.
‘Starved’ is a logical step forward mixing elements of old and new Sunk Loto, and will no doubt be tipped to be the new single given time, while the current single ‘Everything Everyday’ is as accessible as the band get on the album.

Honesty 23 Feb. 2006
By Cal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Cal here from the Goldy, Australia. Sunk Loto are possibly the most under-apprieciated band I can think of. Gotta tell ya.. I've heard, I've seen, I've had a few coldies with these guys and all that needs to be said is they are passionate, honest, talented and like all great muso's probably a little crazy. I'm tired of reading reviews that are nothing more than a comparison between artists.. I hold sunks talent right up there with the best of the best and personally as a muso myself would say they shred over a lot of bands that people often place them in the shadow of. Best of luck boys not that u'll need it if u keep progressing at the rate you have. Can't wait for the new albumn. I expect it to be nothing less then the best Metal Album ever to come out of Australia no doubt a sound that pushes the Metal envelope Worldwide! As for the review.. it sickens me that sunk even need one.

good music from four young guys 16 Feb. 2005
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Its feels kind of weird writing a review for a band that is from australia and me being from the U.S and all, but this is one of the best cds that ive had heard in years, from begging to end. If your into nu-metal and want to listen to a hard rocking band you should really check this guys out.
best metal album of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 23 July 2004
By M. Kenward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For any music listeners into bands similar to Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Pantera, Slipknot, Korn, Megadeth (u get the picture), every day you are alive without listening to this album is a day you have wasted.... I kid you not, this is the best album ever made!!! I am unsure why the 'matt'from sydney asks you to skip track 1, every song is an absolute winner... it is as heavy as pantera's vulgar display..., as catchy as metallica's black album, as complex in time signatures as tool's lateralus, and features some of the best rock drumming you will ever hear with monstrous double bass drumming that even vinnie paul would be proud of. The vocalist has a very unique tone and style to his voice but is not unlike a corey from a stone sour album with agressive screaming and intricate harmonies both present.

There are no real guitar solos but lots of nice melodies and chunky grooves not disimilar to stone temple pilots purple album', and is such a vast improvement from sunk loto's first album, it hardly sounds like the same band. Their next release is my most anticipated album I can think of!!

So if you like any of the artists above, spend any amount of money to import or order this cd and just be blown away.... if you play the drums, this is a must to be used as a teacher in the art of rock drumming, if you are just a rock, heavy rock, or metal fan, buy it ... love it ..... endorse it ..... and just wonder where you have been for the last 5 years!!!!
Not a kid, but listen up... 17 July 2005

I'm actually 20, first off, I just don't have an account. Anyway, Between Birth And Death is a GREAT metal cd, from start to finish. There isn't a track on this album that I don't like. Some standout tracks however are 5 Years of Silence, Empty And Alone, Help, Starved and Public Imagery. Buy it. Buy it NOW.

BEST AUSTRALIAN METAL BAND 13 July 2004
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am kinda embarrassed being the first person to write a review for this album, however i am also proud to say thst this CD is worth your time and effort, some american people consider themselves higher than australian people with offends me but those people should consider buying this cd or downloading some of it's songs, although these guys are australian they do not use an australian voice in their songs, these guys are influenced by the likes of Metallica and Pantera, who are ledgends in metal music, there is no lack of emotion or musical talent in these guys, they're no korn or mudvayne but these guys are an exceptional metal band at that, please if you ever get the opportunity, give these guys a try(note: if u get the cd skip the first track) Peace.
