“It's as if they're trying to live up to their name. Bipolar's splenetic metal is posited on dramatic, sudden mood swings. Take "False," which starts in full froth with breakneck thrash riffing and double bass drum thunder before settling into a forceful, sharp-elbowed groove with rumbling, downtuned bass lines, which in turn are leavened by frontwoman Charlie Hanks' doleful, yet sweet sounding singing. Speaking of Hanks, she breathes fire all over this record, the band's sixth, alternating a menacing, from-the-gut snarl with more melodic phrasing and sustaining screams for a full 10 seconds in places.”

“Charlie, Bipolar’s mono-named lead vocalist, knocked me out with her one-two punch of guttural screaming rage and melodic vocals.”

“The relatively quiet, unassuming blonde and the rest of Bipolar are prepared to melt everyone’s faces off this weekend with the same sweet voice that was once dedicated to choir.”

“Back in 2004, Bipolar picked up a Sammie in the hard rock/metal category. Following the announcement, rumors spread that the band had called it quits. Luckily for fans, that wasn’t the case.”

“Judging .bipolar. at face value is probably just as stupid as spanking a L.A. police officer hoping that it’s someone in a costume. Either way you will be wrong, and you will be up for a beating. This female fronted four piece metal act had an undeniable push of energy”

“2004 Sammies Readers’ Choice award for Metal”

“BiPolar started off the festivities with their grueling and sludgy metal sound, while female singer Charlie gave off the estrogen energy with her hypnotic harmonies and bone-crunching screams.”
