Oceanic
Oceanic
"This is simply superb. Sounds like dark and apocalyptic stoner metal, with harsh screaming vocals and moments of surprising tenderness. 'Carry' is the greatest song ever."
The Beyond
The Beyond
"Again, as close to perfect as music can get. Indefinable but if i have to, think the heaviest guitars you have ever heard, slowed right down, with hardcore vocals. Astounding!"
Rated R

"The best offering thus far from the Queens, far eclipsing the newer 'Songs for the Deaf'. Stoner rock at its finest."
Relationship of Command
Relationship of Command
"They were the future of hardcore punk until their untimely demise in 2000. Think jarring, dischordant guitars with abstract lyrics shouted over the top. So good...."
Jupiter

"The best Cave In album by miles, think prog-post-hardcore. Incredible!"
Burn Piano Island, Burn
Burn Piano Island, Burn
"This is hard to pin down but its kind of manic hardcore in the vein of ATD-I but much more abstract and f**ed up."
Tides Of Tomorrow

"Worth buying simply for 'Dark Driving' but overall this is a great stopgap between Jupiter and Antenna."
Celestial
Celestial
"More Isis, this is much heavier and more uncompromising than Oceanic, but almost as good. Far closer to their original noisecore sound than 'Oceanic.'"
Wiretap Scars
