Drone Machines album review at the Sleeping Shaman webzine: http://www.thesleepingshaman.com/reviews/album/AuthorPunisher_DroneMachines.php
“Drone Machines is an ultra-intense blast of industrial metal performed by enslaved heavy machinery, and at it’s most intense, sounds like a symphony of hellish steel presses and tank-tread drum machine rhythms…” Crucial Blast
“..If you’ve ever wondered what it must be like to inhabit the deepest depths of Hell—the underworld’s boiler room, where pedophile priests shovel serial killer brains into the burner to keep Hell’s gears moving at a steady pace—then listen to Drone Machines.” San Diego Citybeat
San Diego Citybeat review of “Drone Machines” LP, 2010.
“The music becomes more than a chunk of industrial metal, it becomes a heaving metallic monster MADE from industrial metal, the various gears and servos emitting strange buzzes and whirrs, its thunderous footsteps the booming beat, the speaker rattling low end it’s guttural growl, and the howling vox, the man that commands this beast, and instructs it to do his bidding, a futuristic steampunk, post industrial robotic doom metal dirge, that we just can’t get enough of!” Aquarius Records
