"Hey, listen. Do you ever think about, you know, aliens? Or more specifically, what aliens (ages from now, exhuming the wreckage and rubble of our long-devastated cities) would think if they happened upon a grindcore record like War, Hate, and Misery? Like, from a purely sociological standpoint, what does grindcore say about the state of our society, the dissatisfaction of humanity as a whole? Most importantly, would Bloodpy Phoenix pretty much be enough to instigate a telepathic, planet-wide "Lets get the living fuck out of here" by said extraterrestrials when they pop this thing in the mothership's CD player? At this point I'm thinking yeah, probably. Because this is some crazy shit, ideed. I don't even particularly like grindcore and I can admire the fact that this band is relentless, scary, and tight as hell. I mean, they've got all the requisites of a standard grindcore band - screaming guy, Cooking Monster guy, the fuzzed-out bass laying waste to the low end, all of it - but they're doing it with such goddamn precesion and insistence that I can't help but tip an imaginary hat. Still, they're yet another band that uses loaded imagery (dudes being hung, piles of skulls, stricken faces behind barbed wire) and has brutal song titles that uses what could have been a pretty imformative lyric sheet for a foldout poster and thanking their homies. But I've come to accept that nine times out of ten that all you're gonna get from a record of this ilk. So if you're soley in it for the music, then you'll be stoked. Play it loud and bring an extra pair of pants."

"This is really a ground sounding release. All of the fury from the guitars, bass, and drums mesh perfectly with the wretched and merciless vocals. Structurally speaking, most of the record is charging along at a pretty swift pace with pulverizing and tight blasts at its nucleus."
- Give Me Back #3

"What a great fucking CD! Bloody Phoenix is a straight forward old school grindcore (with some p.v. edges) (band) that skull fux the listener into a raging head banging session... complete with band over by the CD's end. 26 blasting attacks in all of which dissapoint. Fucking essential for those into Rotten Sound, Napalm Death, and Hatred Surge."
