about

"Like the best of the genre (such as Theologian or Brighter Death Now, who is even name-checked as an explicit inspiration in the album’s press notes), Only Red is a dark, moody work able to draw on convention and coax forth new sounds, constantly pushing back boundaries and redrawing the boundaries of death industrial. Stomping power electronics, wispy dark ambient and unrelenting noise come together in Grant’s most successful balancing act yet, and perhaps his first moment of real greatness." - Toilet Ov Hell

"Heavy, industrial percussion (to call them rhythms would be misleading) and strong drones form the backbone of Only Red, with sound loops, damaged electronics, and an overwhelming atmosphere of pain and desperation giving the album its flesh. There is nothing remotely approachable about the record – every moment bristles with spikes and anxiety, as if striving to keep the world at bay and prevent any invasion or interference of the artist’s personal space. The only way to make sense of – and survive – Only Red is to throw yourself in to it wholeheartedly, letting the swirling currents and tides of pain batter you until you find something like stability. It is hardly an easy task, but one full of reward, as the way sole member Andrew Grant puts across his anxiety and nihilism is very compelling." - The Sound Not The Word

"One of the strongest features of Only Red is just how well Grant is at employing the expected sounds of noise and power electronics into a different structure, one with a greater depth and complexity rather than just being pure dissonance. That, coupled with the palpable sense of frustration and anger (but not in the stereotypically destructive framework) that he generates, gives an added depth to an extremely strong record." - Brainwashed.com
