“Black International are a powerful, intelligent new species of band that we’ll likely be bowing down to for a long time once they take over the planet, and that’s absolutely fine with me.” – Aaron Drain, State Magazine
“uncompromising, unsettling, interesting and refreshing” – Sam Robinson, Echoes and Dust
