"...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."
"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."
"....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."
