"Spirytus definitely know how to create a raw metal sound, whilst keeping it fresh and interesting. Their debut album is packed with chugging riffs, funky basslines, pounding drums and crushing vocals and is a great example of UK heavy metal today. Their debut self-titled album is reminiscent of some of the bigger American metal artists around today. The drumming alone is fantastic and well worth a listen and the funky slack bass lines really add something different to their primarily metal sound and its overall groove. The basslines throughout the album really push the music forward, it could be Rage Against The Machine before launching headfirst into a fuckstorm of metal"
"Spirytus are one of the top metal bands on the unsigned scene and are continuing to power their way towards bigger things. Make sure to catch these guys live, you will not be disappointed!!!"
"Spirytus' self-titled début is a stunning display. This album shows that nu-metal never really died, it has just been waiting for a decent band to pick it out from the alternative scene's genre gutter, and Spirytus are definitely leading the comeback"
“Hot Band of the Month " Spirytus are a Nottingham five-piece breathing fresh life into nu metal and they mean business. You should check them out, thankfully not just because Fred Durst told you to. While the red hatted prince of nu metal may have sung the band's praises, there is far more appeal to Spirytus than some heavyweight backing. Walton is undoubtedly a talented vocalist – effortlessly lurching from a grunge-esque tone to a full on scream – but Ben McAlonan's breakneck double bass skills more than play their part in giving the band their rough and ready sound. The band's in your face attitude is perhaps non more evident that on their face-melting cover of the Prodigy's 'Breathe', which is somehow even more soaked in attitude than the original. Mr Durst would be very proud"”
"Spirytus channel the best elements of metal including the bounce the popping bass but turn up the crush to brutal levels to awesome effect"
"An album packed full of both traditional familiarity and contempory innovation. This has massive potential written all over it"
"Musically equivalent to the devastating power of an unbridled rock tornado 'Spirytus' contains a swirling thunderstorm of all the best parts of any act you care to name. Korn, Deftones, Mudvayne, Taproot and many more"
