"Follow The Deceived have an impressive myspace page, great photos, and well recorded music. I’m impressed not only with how the vocals have been captured, but just how many layers of vocals have been captured to sound so intense, so close. Epitomising this approach is the raw Memoirs of a Madman, its screams close enough to cut slash through any doubts about this band. It’s a song with a big ‘no nonsense’ label attached to it." "This is a raw band in need of praise for the way the members have recorded these powerful songs." "Follow The Deceived are definitely not out of their comfort zone on this recording. This band is worth your time."
"Sonically, the track sounds great, the musicianship is excellent, and the vocals are right in line with the hard hitting, somewhat progressive style." "Well-written structure" "Vocal style is complimentary to this type of aggressive track"
