“…a great combo of mathcore with some super cool Dillinger-esque vibe to it. At parts some of the guitars also seem to take influence from early Converge, combining some unique guitar sounds with some straight up hardcore punk, which absolutely rules.”

“This frenzied, dizzying and completely mind-boggling release sounds like a drug-addled cross between The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Blood Brothers, The Jesus Lizard and Capsule.”

“This Chicago trio’s music is as if At the Drive-In and Braid decided to write the soundtrack to a car chase. Every song has layers of frenetic guitars, attention-grabbing vocals and drums that hit hard and leaves little room to breathe. “Maps” contains everything you want in an EP.”

“…the mutated offspring of a liaison between At The Drive In, Devo, Wire, and The Dillinger Escape Plan.”
