Armored Anthrax at Bush's house review.
"The opening guitar riff was very Bad Brains. The music overall was cool, old school sounding, kinda reminded me of metal before Metallica took over, but harder, cooler. The singer sounds like the guy from Bush occasionally, and sometimes the guy from Armored Saint/Anthrax. He did a great job at making a hook. This was a really good metal song...I liked it a lot. I'd rather listen to this than Anthrax any day...that is a compliment by the way. These guys are good...the singer...kudos to you... FUNCH, Carlstadt, New Jersey" June 2005.

Barikada World Of Music review.
"In the field of metal, alternative or some crossover variation, the band experiments with their writing style...I must commend the vocal abilities of front man Michael Ibarra." [Google translate from Croatian] Branimir Bane Lokner, Zemun, SCG (Serbia/Montenegro). review link 10-30-2005
