"A high-energy blast of technical, unpredictable death metal."
"...most importantly, they have a real talent for writing catchy stuff."
"...a thundering beast of death metal... ...grinding brutal force. Very catchy riffing and out of control drumming... ...I like when vocalists actually have a decent range... ...Insane double bass slams out along with the infectious chugging riffs and outrageous technical guitar lines... ...Songs like “I Wanna Be A Dinosaur” show off the pure comedy that this band harnesses... ... I love it... ... It is impossible to know what this band has in store for you... ...Wow, mind blown beyond repair."
--R. Gnarly @ American Aftermath 8/10
"SHSTL is batshit crazy... ...sweet snazzy jazz stuff... ...fuck knows what else you can make up when you’re stoned on weed and mushrooms... ...just not so much that it becomes more of a stand-up comedy show than a Metal album. The band manages to tread the edge brilliantly, right there on the peak of the combination. The result is some Brutal Metal that for once doesn't make you want to shoot yourself through the mouth."
--Niek @ Death Metal Baboon 8.5/10
