‘an ultra-potent blend of pulsing electronics, screeching noise guitar and sloganeering lyrics.’ – Stool Pigeon
“consistently playing some of the most intense gigs in the past couple of years” – The Quietus
‘The quartet look and sound fantastic: shrouded in smoke, lit from behind, and wrapped in their wall of noise, their leather jacket proto-grunge image makes it seem like The Jesus & Mary Chain have killed Suicide, stolen their souls and their gear, and jumped twenty years into the future.’ The New Thing
‘Half The Sisters Of Mercy, a quarter ’80s-era Killing Joke and a quarter Gary Numan [circa Replicas], Ulterior’s dingy electro-beat is at once postmodern and gothic.’ Decibel
‘The group is a singular physical experience, the pulverizing rhythms and disorienting guitar noise entertaining the role of a sinister tag team in your speakers.’ Delusions of Adequacy
‘…a wall of pop noise which draws you in and instantly. If you are like me you become a believer.’ Retna Music UK
