“If you're ready for concrete riffs, red-faced vocals churning with hate, and an abominable rhythm section that will stomp a mudhole in you, these guys bring the goods. Meshing Pantera, DRI, and Sworn Enemy, Desolate leaves some impressive looking mark!”
“Desolate puts on a hell of a live show and when you see them, you will be there at the front of the stage with cocktail in hand and a neck brace waiting in the car for the ride home.”
"There's some real hard-hitting power behind these songs that really hold the flag of metal high - if I were to try and describe what I think the current sound of a HC/metal band should employ, Desolate has it and then some!"
"These guys are pissed off about something and they let you know it. If you're looking for some aggressive music with a hardcore sensibility to it and a New York attitude, these guys are for you."
"Unadulterated, ass kicking Metal! One listen to this album(Fortitude)and you can tell these guys know and love what they do, they are very tight and have immense chops!"
