beaten to a pulp with crushing and meaningful guitar twisted rock."

FVMusicBlog (UK)

"The sounds are raw, yet elegantly wrought with stalking bass lines,

acoustic strains, sustaining lead lines snaking around an evocative lead

vocal telling stories like a carnival provocateur."

American Pancake (USA)

"Met een flinke spanningsboog, een ronkende partij gitaren en dreigende

drumritmes wordt er in 'We Skinned a Ghost (For Pleasure)'

opgebouwd naar een furieus einde."

NeverMindTheHype (NL)

"SPIRITBOX kruipt diep onder je huid."
