"three women, doing a sonorous devastation of pure industrial experimental, too addictive. it is perfect"

"Suffocating Industrial Metal that will pummel you into a trance you don't want to wake up from..."

"Absolutely mind-blowing set"

"... you seemed dangerous!"

"an arresting, brutalist noisescape" (Leeds Conservatoire UK)

"This is really incredible, the variety of sounds and industrial atmospheres that you create is brutal. Enigmatic music."

"It seems as if we are entering another world. Thousands of sensations and thoughts intersect when listening to this music."

"Mightiest of sounds."
"Pitch black Industrial (Metal) from members of Coma Cluster Void. Literally some of the best stuff I've heard coming out of this genre lately and I sincerely hope that we will hear more from this project in the future." (Simon Sludge/Nightmarer)

"astonishing legendary" (Doom Heart)

"It was amazing how you felt the vibrations of the room and played with it" (Plaid)

"What a night, what a crowd and what stunning music" (Dr. Paul Abbott, SoundsLikeTHIS Festival)

"I am intrigued with this wonderfull cooperation of musicians with a broad mind bringing different genres and styles from different settings together. If you enjoy doom and gloom give this one a try!" (feinstruktur)

"godflesh be like AGHHH!!!!"

"Damn, where do you guys get your acid?"
