Best heard through a cloud of dopesmoke & bad vibes.
" This album will surely rank pretty high on best albums for 2012 lists...this is insanely addictive....9.5/10." ~Doommantia
"what should I say about the most essential, except that this debut is yet one of the ESSENTIAL albums of 2012 ??!! I.T.C.O.S. delivers a monstruous kind of Sludge/Doom, so deeply groovy, punchy and viciously infectious, that you can not resist but just become addicted to their venomous sound, and succumb under the power of their mindblowing riffs, amazing bluesy solos, titanesque drummings and crushing psyched-out vocals..." ~Temple of Perdition
"I can't help but think that if Iommi, Keith Moon and Jim Morrison all merged, got heavily into the occult and opium then hired Anton LaVey as their manager they would have probably sounded like this. Or to put it another way; it's what Lucifer would have playing on the radio as Dante walked through the gates of hell." ~Ride With The Devil
"Right from the beginning, this two piece from Denver, Colorado, pound you in the skull, and don't let up for the next 37 minutes.... I've never had a band take me to the darkest moors of England, then to the swamps of New Orleans, and back, many times, in the span of a few songs. Crushing, unrelenting, and surprisingly groovy at times, this (record) does not disappoint!" ~Doom-Metal.com
"Lean, mean and gritty sludge that manages to be both raw-sounding and tight at the same time, a rarity in this genre. with incredible infectious, stoner-y riffs." ~MetalSucks.net
"The guys are superb musicians and prove it time and time again on this superb release. It's superbly produced from the word go. And you can hear every hard hitting note played to perfection. Play this great release loud as you can and get immeresed in the world of this great band...this is an outstanding release from another great band to discover out there. This is a brutal groove based Sludge/Stoner Metal thrill ride and one I want to take over and over again." The Sludgelord
