Swarm of Arrows / Press

“Swarm of Arrows are able to have a unique enough and interesting enough sound to keep any metal fan entertained...”

“Swarm of Arrows bring a heavy serving of bread and butter to the table of contemporary sludge/stoner metal with their latest release.”

“Mammoth walls of dense, spiraling riffs, pragmatic solo excursions and a markedly adroit (read: friggin' awesome) rhythm section are piloted by vocalist Keats Rickard, whose wholly discernible roars of scorn and despair seem to emanate from the very bowels of his soul...Swarm of Arrows are every bit as assailing as the name suggests.”

Liz Ciavarella-Brenner - Decibel magazine, Issue #101

“Fans of Mastodon and High on Fire will certainly be attracted to the bone crushing riffs, gut wrenching vocals and stampeding drums.”

“...this mighty quartet has the skills to scope out their own plot of land alongside their influences...(they) maintain their own distinctive personality while kicking ass with the best.”

“...imagine taking the best of old school Mastodon and what Baroness should have been, pump that full of killer vibes and equally killer beards and you have Swarm of Arrows.”

“Here is when 'rock' meets 'metal' and both embrace, content to enhance their respective gifts and generate a healthy dose of head-knock and hip swagger.”

“(Swarm of Arrows) took a melodic approach from early NWOBHM, some of the bombast of thrash, death and hardcore punk of the ’90s, plus the relentless pounding of sludge and stoner rock.”

“With The Great Seekers of Lesser Life, Swarm of Arrows has delivered up a caliginous slab of monolithic metal that seeks to club you upside the head and pillage through your open cranium. This is a prodigious and welcome debut from a promising talent.”

“Swarm of Arrows’ sonic signature is big, beefy, and burly…”

“A quartet hailing from Philly that play a lean and mean type of metal that fans of Clutch, Kylesa and Converge will go nuts for.”

"...what sets Swarm Of Arrows apart from the bajillions of other bands is that they can actually write good songs."

"...this is a very good debut effort from Swarm of Arrows...I'm thoroughly excited to hear more from these guys in the future."
