“…the tunes they churn out here are full-fledged, fast, dark, and nasty… with a murderous groove and a vocalist more used to spitting black metal brimstone than dopesick bile.” – Noisey
“The music is suicidal, destructive nonchalance writhing in pain and apathy, all trapped in the same moment. CLASSHOLE have made a soundtrack to a descent into despair.” – New Noise
“…sick, dirty, anarchic, caustic….” – The Examiner
“…pure, unadulterated anger….” – Rock Shock Pop
“…fifteen tracks of angry, fast-paced punk laced with old-school hardcore breakdowns… There is no poetry, no pomp and certainly no circumstance. Merely an album of raw anthems replete with sing-along aspects and curb stomping brutality. The revolution is now and the soundtrack to the black bandana faced throwing of molotov cocktails will be CLASSHOLE.” – Nine Circles
