“[Aperiodic is] a Cecil Taylor-messy, seemingly unstructured, brute, busy, squalid clamor of clattering drums disjointed from guitars that feedback in loud, vaporous, spastic trembles...it’s calculated riot”
“Mala In Se take the animosity of metal and integrate elements of avant-noise, pained vocals, and even jazzy time sequences to create a disturbing listening experience that is impossible to ignore...while the influences are many, the final product is entirely original.”
“We certainly do appreciate this Croatian band’s take on Tar / Crain / Janitor Joe / Arcwelder / Shellac... [with Joe 4] you’ll be hard pressed to find a better representation of pure, unadulterated noise rock.
—SHINY GREY MONOTONE
“[Knife The Symphony’s] furious, frantic, atypical take on punk rock is pretty much what keeps me from feeling that punk is dead...loud, dissonant, unconventional rock music that has the tempos of punk, but the chords and artistic aesthetic of post-hardcore"
