"Superb bombastic killer metal comes from the state of Illinois in Sad Eyed Angel. These four guys add speed filled riffs to compliment furious vocals and kick drums… a heavy metal mosh recipe one can''t resist… their songs grab you by the throat from the first few notes and add a nice change of pace from riff to chorus back to riff madness… rolls along with thrash like speed and violent vocal screams… overall, this is worth all the spare time you may have. So if you really want to wreak your neck from head banging or fracture your bones in a mosh pit, then this platter is for you… a 9/10!"

"Goddamn, this is heavy fuck''n metal! … In the way of genre description it''s metal with a thrashing delivery… after my fourth time through the disc I began to fear my home''s foundation would turn to concrete dust. You can not go wrong with the flesh-ripping riffs, piercing solos, and powerhouse drumming on (the songs) … I loved every destructive minute of it. Pick up this killer disc from these Illinois metal monsters."
