Thank Satan It’s Friday: Mechanical Triceratops! – The Pop Break

“Let’s kick this week off with something that sounds like if Primus were a death metal band, yeah? […] The project is meant to be a simultaneous descent into a fun version of insanity, and a break from all the crazy shit that’s going on in the world today… and BIONATOPS nails it. Not to mention the music is incredibly well-executed, the vocals are super diverse, and the heavy parts are not even considering fooling around for one single second. Fun? Yes, but that doesn’t mean this duo isn’t putting 110% into it.” – The Pop Break

LACES OUT: s/t (Nefarious Industries) review – Collective Zine

“There was a time where if you read zines like HeartattaCk, Double Decker, and Nothing Left, you couldn’t seem to go three reviews without a record being compared to Fugazi or Hoover. For LACES OUT, either the past 20 years just haven’t happened or they’re on the bleeding edge of a new new wave of angular post-hardcore. Basslines groove and rumble; guitar lines snake off on wild tangents and vocals veer between howled and sung. It’s enjoyable rather than incendiary, but for those of you out there mourning the likes of Shotmaker, Unwound, and Bailer you could certainly do worse than giving these five tracks a go.” – Collective Zine
