“These are two stellar bands that have come together to make one hell of a split. IRON REAGANbrings their traditional crossover thrash — offering plenty of thrills and adrenaline — whileGATECREEPER provides total, death metal annihilation. Both acts give their all, unleashing a delightful blend of fun and insanity.” — Metal Injection

“In the mood for a blistering new thrash cut, or perhaps some fresh death metal? Better yet, how about both? You’re in luck!… a one-two punch to the eardrums that’s bound to leave a mark well beyond the split’s March 2nd release date.” — Revolver

“…two of the best, top-of-the-line late ’80s/early ’90s extreme metal influenced acts come together. The split serves as a great introduction to both bands if you’ve never heard them before and showsGATECREEPER is still alive and kicking in between full-lengths.” – Grizzly Butts

“All eight of the tracks presented are strong offerings by both groups and will surely leave the listener with an appetite for running out to binge on each band’s extensive back catalog. Highly recommend.” — Metal Nexus

“Wrapping up in less than twenty minutes, Relapse should be proud to have bands of this stature consistently churning out new music for them… I love the ability of a band — or two in this case — to get in there, destroy posers with marksman-like precision, and abruptly exit. That is exactly what happens here.” — Indy Metal Vault

“This is a release that really sees two bands that I love achieving a new phase of their respective careers, be it with IRON REAGAN‘s youthful exuberance becoming ever more refined orGATECREEPER‘s grandiose majesty and shift beyond knuckle dragging death metal, this album is important; it’s the sort of record that I genuinely believe will be looked back on as something of a turning point for both groups. It’s truly demented to be sure, but the kind of thing that you can’t help but to love if you’re in love with the crypt.” — Two Guys Metal Reviews
