Clandestine Abuse Review - Don't Count On It Reviews
"It's honestly a nice example of a slower band, and I'm referring to newer bands here, going out on a limb and trying out some new ideas instead of trying to be just doom, just sludge, just post-metal. Hence the repeated use of the word crushing, it's on tracks like Damnation that I found that word applied the most, what with it's heavy grooves and intense drumming."... Read More

And he’s backed by a pavement saw bass tone and drums that sound fashioned from cement mixers."
Bonus points for using "yawp", we'd say.
Inside Milwaukee review of Clandestine Abuse
"The record wastes not more than three seconds before inciting the almost hour-long blitzkrieg. Thereafter, the sonic cityscape is peppered with a bombardment of jagged screams, crushing cymbals and a muddy smattering of metallic thunder.

AV Club Milwaukee Reviews Clandestine Abuse
"This is an album so overblown, so dense, and so thick with noise that it’s a wonder it can be sussed out by human ears. Guitars violently riff, vocals growl forth from the din, and drums explode and crumble away into static. Claiming this album could peel the paint off walls does it a great disservice—this shit could peel the primer."
