Press quotes for “Grind Over Matter“:

This is like “Darkness Descends” or “Eternal Devastation” on 45, the record can really keep up with the band classics “Under The Blade” and “Fast Forward”. Genius!” Frank Albrecht, Deaf Forever Magazine, 9,5/10 points

If you want to have your beet sabered cleanly from the hull, this is the right place for you. All killers-no fillers!” Patrick Schmidt, Rock Hard Magazine, 9/10 points

I recommend everyone who has half an hour left after listening to “Reign In Blood” and DARK ANGEL’s “Darkness Descends” to blow this almost perfect piece of deadly thrash through their ears!” Michael Meyer,, 9,5/10 points

The sixth longplayer presents the Swedes as you remember them: forward, aggressive and ruthless.” Fuze magazine
