“This is metal in its purest, most sincere form. These songs are powerful words backed by powerful music by a band that doesn’t cut corners or play it safe. They say what they mean and do it the only way they know how; honestly and very loudly.”

“you should have no problem agreeing that Vindicator's music is right up there with the thrash metal elite. There are moments in this release where you will be dazzled with stunning acoustic guitar work but for the most part the band aims to snap necks by jam packing each track with killer riffs that would turn Dave Mustaine green with envy these days.”

“You’re here for the riffs, the guitar solos and copious amounts of headbanging (also beer). And that, indeed, is what you’re going to get from Vindicator. [United We Fall] is a non-stop thrash fest from the word go and I love every minute of it.”

“As tight as it is tough, "The Antique Witcheries" is the album that will give VINDICATOR a much deserved higher level of recognition. This is thrash metal that is hard as nails and consistently well written. Terms like "retro" and "thrash revival" don't mean shit. VINDICATOR brings the metal proper and that's all that matters.”

“Perhaps unsurprisingly, this sophomore effort from the Ohio-based mob picks up rather seamlessly from where 2008 debut 'There Will Be Blood' left off... there's more than enough here to see Vindicator become welcome members of the pack.”

“Cleveland's next generation of top musicians walks among us today, but you might not have noticed them yet. Not much makes them stand out on the street — maybe it's the long hair, the leather jackets, or the look in their eyes that says we're hungry. South Amherst's Vindicator are one of these 10 area artists who are set to hit their stride in 2011. The four-piece unveiled their evil inspirations on last year's The Antique Witcheries, a frenzy of shredding guitars, crazed percussion, and vocal rage.”

“Ohio's VINDICATOR are right up there, if not better than the likes of WARBRINGER, GAMA BOMB, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, BONDED BY BLOOD or any of the other so-called retro thrash, New Wave Of Thrash or Thrash Revival bands. They combine Bay Area thrash influences with Teutonic thrash and a bit of NWOBHM. They even bring in a bit of the east coast thrash like ANTHRAX or NUCLEAR ASSAULT.”

“With a solid production and strong tracks like "Dead in the Water", "Fear Monger", "Raze the Dead" and "Quarry Rats" The Antique Witcheries can easily be on anyone's true thrash metal 'to-do' list; it's certainly worth the time you'd invest in some other band that has no real sense of what the medium needs to remain vital. Vindicator fits the bill and delivers its brand of heavy metal without reserve or reticence.”

“This is a solid album from a hopeful young band of players who all bear strong influences from some of the genres finest acts. Heavy Artillery has a knack for cherry picking some of the choicest acts from the current crop of retro thrash bands and this release is no exception to that rule. In that regard, Vindicator are a safe bet.”

“'Beneath The Guillotine' had me tapping my foot and banging my head from the first time I heard it.”
