Obsessive Compulsive / Press

““F***ing brilliant… Alice in Chains giving the Smashing Pumpkins a sound beating in a back alley… One of the most genuinely ear-catching rock debuts to reach us in quite some time, cannot be recommended highly enough.””

Greg Porter - DEVOLUTION MAGAZINE:

"Impossible to pigeon-hole, but I guess loosely definable as angry goth-rock, Obsessive Compulsive have always appealed to a wide range of lost souls across the spectrum, and with a record like this to their name, they can only go further. It may have started with an angry young girl screaming at the world, but it’s really matured into a meaningful and well directed attack.”

Sexy Dave - Pure Rawk

"Screamingly angry modern pop-punk with nods to thrashy rock and a dark lyrical outlook. It's ballsy stuff that'll leave you breathless and a little bit scared… One of the better debuts you'll be likely to hear this year.”

ROCK REALMS

“This self propelled band give the impression that you can either like their music and appreciate what they have to say, or, be crushed beneath their inexorable rise to great heights.””

Angel Of Metal

““This album is packed full of dynamic and exciting punk riffs, Kelii's vocals are full of soul and passion… It is that sense of tenderness and vulnerability that make Obsessive Compulsive stand out from their peers; inducing a strangely addictive sense of unease that will keep you coming back for more.””

EGL Magazine

“This is one impressive debut, plenty of variation throughout, plenty of fire, plenty of longing for more.”

Room 13

““Highly recommended!””

GLITZINE

““Obsessive Compulsive have got everything... Their tunes are tight, tough and anthemic. They are heavy but pack a punk rock energy to what they are doing. Their songs are catchy as fuck.... They have the emotional raw power and they have the songs and they have the smarts and the work ethic to make this work.””

JOHN ROBB (Goldblade/The Guardian/Freelance Journalist and Author

“: “Girl Rock that ain’t so girly and will probably kick your ass…From the dark and sickly to the bittersweet… this record delivers a venomous kiss.””

Big Cheese

"Bold, raw and dirty. An album full of energy and attitude that just gets better with each listen.”

ONE METAL

““This album could definitely be a soundtrack for a revolution.””

ALTERNATIVE VISION

““Sounds like a skittish Stone Temple Pilots with a light dusting of gothic menace and a defiant punk rock groove… This a band with both a wide-range of influences and a lot of song-writing nous. An extremely solid and assured debut.””

SOUNDSHOCK

““A debut album to put many an established band to shame. Drawing from an astonishingly wide spectrum of influences from Tori Amos to Black Flag, and stopping off to shake hands with Bjork and Danzig along the way, Obsessive Compulsive have ended up with an instantly attractive deluge of sounds pouring forth from the speakers to create a seductive pool of seething, emotionally charged, passionate rock that won't just have you dipping your toes, it'll have you diving straight in. “”

UBERROCK

““A brave and exhilarating new force in British rock music, this is one of the most exciting rock albums to emerge from the UK in a long, long time.””

Dom Lawson - (Metal Hammer / Classic Rock)

““This album does not back down… from grunge-laden riffs, to Kelii’s voice, which on this album is really given a chance to shine… At it’s most ferocious; “Dreams of Death” is not without its brooding, tender side. But make no mistake, even in the most macabre moments, that fierce attitude does not disappear… “”

Kat Ball - PLANET LOUD

““Obsessive Compulsive have energy, anger, intensity and belief… Dreams Of Death & The Death Of Dreams was recorded last year with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death/Evile). It offers up a cocktail of Killing Joke, Hole and Atari Teenage Riot – new age metal.””

CLASSIC ROCK (Track of the day - May 20th)

““ Guitar solos that veer from simple one liners to pyrotechnic works that could easily be spliced from a G N’R album. The three male members of the band ensure that singer Kelii has a bedrock of Seattle rock, California punk and stoner sounds to play around with. “A Cocktail Of Toxins” is a grunge delight whilst “Spit The Medicine” provides heavy industrial / metal…. Closing track “27 ½” is the band at their zenith, cramming all of these ideals into one progressive, nuclear anthem.””
