“…ingenious, forward-thinking metal.” — Pitchfork
“Uncompromising and true, the band led by vocalist CT…have never wavered from their goal: exacting sonic hell on the listener. They have harvested this idea in the past, but never more so totally than on Rest.” — Metal Army America
“It’s profoundly ugly music capable of great catharsis and, therefore, great beauty.” — Austin American Statesman
“…dementedly brilliant.” — Rock Sound
