"Dark Smith masterfully pounds and grinds out bleak sonic textures with intense precision."
"Goth-tinged post-punk with buzzing angular guitars, gloomy vocals and hypnotic song hooks."
"Swirling with hints of shoegaze, post-punk and dissatisfaction with the status quo."
-The Seattle Times
"A post-apocalyptic soundtrack for misfits, an anthem for the apathetic."
"In short: it’s fucking huge.”
