"Their newest full length appeared hot on it's heels, containing the band's most perplexing material so far. The nine tracks here keep it very loud and very heavy, and completely instrumental in contrast to the minimal use of vocal sounds on their debut. Each song is a super complicated tapestry of dense angular math-rock riffs, lopsided rhythmic patterns, and paranoid sounds of unknown origin that will all of a sudden come together to form a beautiful Slinty passage or a creaking dissonant metallic dirgedrone, like Glen Branca gone sludge metal. An A-Bomb To Wake Up shows a much higher level of focus and compostional skill than their debut, as well as even crazier time changes and abrupt changes in direction, but never backs off of the ass-crushing heaviness, a mutant composite of Magma, Pelican, Isis, Neurosis post metal, classic Louisville math rock, Godflesh, avant-jazz, and Hawkwind, ultimately pretty freaking unique and mind bending, a winner for number crunchers who like their prog/math/confusional rock as heavy as God. Highly recommended!" – by Adam Wright-Carmean at Crucial Blast Records (USA)
