"This band is sick with talent, and very unique. If you like experimental and progressive rock and roll, then you HAVE to check out The Maw!"
"With a debut album like “1937”, THE MAW seems on track to establish themselves as a solid, enduring musical presence in the Des Moines scene, not just another flavor-of-the-month short lived trend. An album like “1937” will still be great in 20 years – there is a hypnotizing timelessness to the songs and a song-to-song cohesiveness that makes this seem less like a self-produced local CD and more like a great classic album."
"Crushingly heavy sludge metal fades out like parting storm clouds letting the sunlight of an elegant piano piece shine through."
