Selected (press) quotes:

‘Katie Kruel combines all the grimy, heavy and intense, in short everything good, of several awesome styles, including post and stoner metal, making the end result sound thoroughly doomy.(...) This music does a great job in shaking up the mind and soul to leave the listener feeling blissfully awakened at the end of the ride. This is a band that I am proud to say is from The Netherlands!’ (Bart Meijer, Lords of Metal Ezine)

‚...‘Music that stalks you like an efficient predator in the night and then suddenly jumps on and won‚Äôt let go. It is exciting, compelling, grim and simply overwhelming. (...) Melvins, Pain Teens, Neurosis, Babes In Toyland and Esben And The Witch are certainly among the references (...) with the cinematic parts of Nick Cave & Warren Ellis.
‚... goose bumps, beauty, filthiness, hardness, anger and love form one powerful fist, which at times taps softly and impatiently on the table, but often provides an inimitable, effective uppercut. What a magisterial album!’
(Jan Willem Broek, Subjectivisten)

... ‘already one of the most exceptional and passionate albums of 2019. Both musically and lyrically, the album stands out in idiosyncrasy and depth (and the depths can sometimes be extremely dark)’
(Rob Veltman, Popunie)

‚...‘purifying damnation and misery that flushes away sorrows, sins and shortages every time your listen to it. It should be prescribed by doctors.’
(Philip van der Linden, Rockportaal)

‘The rough production of Katie Kruel's new album The Rise and Fall or Cannibal Planet may take some getting used to, but listen to the emotional "Still" and you realise why it contributes to that grim, tragic, yet stunning atmosphere.’
(Merijn Siben, Never Mind the Hype)

...‘Delightful! This quartet shakes your heart and soul!’
(Nel Mertens, Luminous Dash)

...‘Rotterdam's genre-shattering quartet Katie Kruel with ruthless, doomy and sludgy sounds (...) sounds awesome (...) brilliant stuff...’
(DJ Aiir Geezer, AiiRadio, New York)
