Kerrang! 4K
“Their groovy stoner-punk is perfectly pitched to get this party started”
“A staggering exploration of just how many ways there are to make a sonic attack without sacrificing an ounce of momentum”
Metal Hammer 8/10
“The riffs are huge, the energy is infectious, and Jørn Kaarstad does a much more convincing cockney accent than Dick Van Dyke”
“A cross-genre, hook-laden, charismatic statement made for your attention”
Rock Sound
“Crushing together the carefree mayhem of punk and the weight of hardcore while throwing in a hell of a lot of personality for good measure, the Norwegian trio are making friends and inciting pits everywhere they shred.”
Distorted Sound, 10/10
A sonic equivalent of downing an entire crate of beer, crushing the cans on your forehead and jumping straight into a mosh pit.
Total Guitar
“Bokassa’s bulldozer rock recalls the kind of punk-metal bounce that you get with Cancer Bats, albeit loosened with a little stoner slack!”
Powerplay, 8/10
“A shit load of riffs and hooks”
