"At its core, Sabertooth Zombie is a mid-`80s style crossover hardcore band. However, with their aforementioned experimentalist tendencies, there are remnants of Black Sabbath and other older metal and rock bands constantly bubbling through the ever-present layer of overdrive. What really sets this release over the top, though, is the perfectly used free-jazz saxophone on two tracks. Maybe it’s a nod to Nation of Ulysses or just a last minute addition, but it totally works. To match the appropriately raw production values, the vocalist has a rough shouting approach that may not appeal to some, but fits the vibe of the band."
