TOTIMOSHI deliver a smart and uniquely wonky brank of hard rock that’s something bluesy, sometimes sexy, sometimes spaced out but never anything less than completely compelling.” – Rock Sound

“Avenger is fresh and crisp, with much to digest…. a thoroughly satisfying album.” –

“Though it aims for the throat, Avenger consistently seeps into the soul, proving that Totimoshi remain one of the most original forces in modern metal.” – Exclaim

“Comparable to classic rock, but fused with enough modernity to grant relevance over nostalgia, TOTIMOSHI is a steady and robust rock unit, at times flirting with enough progressive adventure to negate expectations of typical rock repetition.” – Stereokiller

“The freshness of a band setting their own rules and virtually creating their own unique pigeon hole is rare, admirable and in the case of Californians TOTIMOSHI deeply satisfying.” – This Is Not A Scene

“…their best piece of work to date.” – Doommantia

“It’s dissonant but melodic, dirty and clean, noisy but engaging, structured but open. If there’s a word to encompass the existence these varied ideas within a singular space that’s better fitting than the name of the band, I don’t know what it is, so I’ll just say that. It’s TOTIMOSHI.” – The Obelisk

“Sludge metal meets alternative metal meets 70s hard rock… an album which – with the presence of elements from a number of different rock genres – probably will have a broad appeal among fans of alternative rock/metal, sludge metal, psychedelic heavy rock, progressive hard rock and perhaps even dark progressive metal along the lines of Psychotic Waltz.” – Sea Of Tranquility
