"...the best they've sounded, the tightest representation of their no-holds-barred thrash attack that pummels you into dirt for 32 frenzied minutes straight, without so much as a 10-second breather..." - Billboard
"one of the best live acts of the modern day" - Loudwire
"You don't need to be a metalhead to have a blast with Nightmare Logic... POWER TRIP's fist-pumping choruses, ricocheting grooves, and ample charm are so animated that they leave us with something addictive and, well, fun. - Pitchfork / Best New Music
"possesses a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy...it's a track preparing for war" - NPR
"one of the most highly anticipated records in aggressive music in recent memory" - The New Yorker
