The Press Raves: The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me


 “This excellent Long Island band plies dense, angry tangles of guitar and opaque lyrics of spiritual crisis, a cross between Pink Floyd and Nirvana.”- NY Times


“The music contains subtle dynamic shifts, interlocking guitar parts and a sensitive rhythm section, and when the group rocks, it rocks with gusto.”- LA Times


“…a triumphant return.” – Rolling Stone


“… Radiohead-indebted bombast that begs to be played at lease-breaking volumes.” – SPIN


“This is a Christian album the way U2’s War is a Christian album: a passionate drama of doubt and faith set to an antsy, adrenalized beat” – Blender


“…strong melodies, solid musicianship, stylistic variety…”- Paste


“America finally gets their own Radiohead.” – Alternative Press
