"This album [First Edition] is so good that it is hard to believe that it is a debut, as it pounds, soothes and grooves throughout the 45-minute duration. First Edition is certainly assured to make its mark."
"Their new album is part grunge, part alt-metal and throw in a few groovy modern Stoner Metal riffs and you have a kick-ass album that could be defined as one of 2011 best debut albums. Full of great alt/grunge metals you can throw a bong-pipe or stick at. This album just rocks out from start to finish. This is a 10 song 45 minute masterclass in alt/grunge metal."
““I hope to see these guys on the road and growing as a band for years to come””
"Amazing songwriting, memorable riffs and outstanding vocals, not to mention a great group of guys, this band is the complete package and I expect great things from them...Give the CD a listen and I doubt it will be long before you are spinning it again."
"Heavily influenced by 90's grunge acts such as Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, California band Cast Iron Crow bleeds new life into an otherwise forgotten genre. Infusing heavy-ass riffs, down-trodden rhythms and machismo vocals, this band will certainly make an imprint in your brain."
"This is an impressively professional, talented and unique band that i for one can’t wait to hear more of in the future!"
"Listening to Cast Iron Crow play reminds me of better times when good music was still being broadcast on terrestrial radio. The Alice-in-chains-esque vibe that they give off is surprising to hear from a group of such young (but talented) musicians. Give em a listen, it's worth it..."
"The sound you’re getting and the diversity of the songs have just blown me away."
"I really love Jake’s voice on this [People of Clay]. It dips into that swooping style that I loved in Jeff Buckley. The guitar showed off some jazzy chops as well. Nice work all around...I can say that I really like the band and would love to hear them live."
