“Sounds like Primus and MindFunk had a love child.”
“This music would be so much better if they tried to sound like Maroon 5 or Carly Rae Jepsen.”
"The intellect of jazz riding on the back of pounding syncopated rhythms enforced by a thick layer of bass lines provide an infectious soundscape that are complemented well by memorable melodies, playful lyrics, and an intense presence. Think Jimmy Page in a jam session with Tom Morello getting ready to take the stage with Alice In Chains. Imagine Bonham behind the kit and when Faith No More comes out for an encore, don’t wet your pants."
"Step Daddy is a hard hitting, tongue-firmly in cheek progressive hardcore/rock band from Seattle inspired by the likes of Tomahawk, Clutch and Mastodon. Expect raspy, sarcastic vocals, dissonant guitars that remind the listener of hardcore icons Botch, and a pummelling rhythm section."
"Step Daddy have the power and songwriting prowess to be extremely dangerous. There’s also a unique quality to this catalogue that breaks the mold when compared to the overly predictable, forgetful rock that’s been filling the airwaves lately."
"Extremely intelligent writing that is every bit enjoyable as it is humorous."
“Brain blendingly delicious.”
“This latest release from Step Daddy entitled Love is a solid musical statement from start to finish. This is Red Hot Chili Peppers on steroids. Its strength – the strong song for song consistency, progressive dynamics and that keeps coming at you. The music is progressive, unpredictable, heavy and original. Like a heavy weight fighter this CD packs a powerful punch, and goes the full 12 rounds with no sign of letting up.”
"A phenomenally powerful, aggressive, and thought provoking debut, “Love” contains 11 incendiary tracks – including two live recordings – that will burn into your subconscious awareness. Among them are absolute highlights like: “Scurvy,” “My Hunger’s Lament,” “Brain de Homage,” “Cuntry Gravy” and “Atlas at Last.” From front to back, “Love” by Step Daddy, is filled with creative riffs, compelling lyrics and vocals, and a rhythm section that gives the music a lot of its character. This album has all that you could want in a rock band. No boundaries, no borders, no limitations; just a healthy dose of lyrical and musical mayhem. A rock revolution in evolution…"
"This is one of those bands that can be compared to Faith No More in their dynamic style, but just like them, this band has more than one hit that should be heard by the masses. Their blend of different genres comes through in a frank, “we play what we feel” way. Their sound takes time to listen to due to the different elements of genres that are brewing on one track to the other. On their track: Scurvy’ the bass starts off with a catchy hook and then next thing you know you’re rocking your head as the guitar adds to the vibe. The progressions are there and you must be ready for the ride they put you through."
“Step Daddy is a hard hitting, tongue-firmly in cheek progressive hardcore/rock band from Seattle inspired by the likes of Tomahawk, Clutch and Mastodon. Expect raspy, sarcastic vocals, dissonant guitars that remind the listener of hardcore icons Botch, and a pummelling rhythm section.”
"Amazingly 20 years after Nirvana became a household name, the city of Seattle is still producing quality homegrown indie bands. When you get the opportunity I suggest giving Step Daddy a chance to earn a slot in your ipod. The band rocks with a wide range sound that can quickly change tempos. After listening a few times I noticed the band likes to break it down slow, tease you and then get real heavy like Rage Against The Machine. I like that style and I personally think it makes for a good show. I really had a hard time choosing a favorite song."
"Holy fucknuts!!! These guys will grab you by the balls and throw you down like a fucking rag doll."
“Craziest fuckers on stage.”
