"...undoubtedly one of the best Canadian albums of the year. There’s not an ounce of fat to be seen here—just an astoundingly crazed and powerful collection of cohesive protest." 
-GRAYOWL POINT
"This is one of the best albums to come out of Toronto in 2015." 
-TORONTO MUSIC REVIEWS
"I can safely say that this is the punkest shit I’ve heard in a long while. Directly derivative of nothing... the Holy Gasp are aural sex, untethered and vigorous." 
-NAKED UNDERGROUND 
"....the band’s debut burns with a fire-and-brimstone intensity pointed directly at apathy, cultural decay, and the ‘generation that don’t wanna make a stink’ ... Hackman is an eccentric, electric frontman, aiming his smart lyrical tirades at modern-day pestilences from parasitic insects ('Bedbugs') to polarizing politicians ('Stomp Out the Man') to self-affirming preschoolers ('A Daily Affirmation'). He’s perfectly matched note for note by his bohemian band mates, a brotherhood of musical chameleons." 
-QUICK BEFORE IT MELTS

"Plainly put, Hackman is quite mad. He approaches singing with the maniacal, reckless abandon that one normally associates with the craziest of punks." 
-RIDE THE TEMPO

"The Holy Gasp feel like a cult band that hasn't become cult yet."
