"The band's prog-metal potential stuns, with Dailor sounding like a young Ozzy over shredding guitars and enough drum dominance to blow out your speak system. Head-bang on." - Spin.Com
"The Atlanta quartet's progress has been steady but exciting, a taut balance of brute force and precision musicianship along with conceptual daring...[OMRTS] features some of the group's most direct moments and most expansive as well as propulsive. It's a smart kind of metal, with enough prog and even intellectual touches to raise it above the genre's standard fare." - New York Times Syndicate
