"Drugs of Faith slows the raw, chaotically fast pace of grindcore to a hurtling mid-tempo right hook... 'Hidden Costs' has the kind of intro that beckons the circular finger motion to start the pit, and with no time to waste, the drums lock in with hardcore fury. But unlike the faster-than-fast drive of most grindcore, there's a dynamic push-and-pull at play, more suited to the controlled anarchy of the mosh." - NPR
"The grinding, rocking, absolutely devastating trio, led by 'The Grindfather' Richard Johnson (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Enemy Soil), have put out just enough songs to keep us salivating while never giving us what we really want." - Decibel
"Corroded is energetic, pissed, and driven by huge hard riffs that have a sludgy groove but are sped up to raw goodness." - Music Emissions
"There’s a strong rock element present within the band’s songwriting, which pushes Drugs of Faith atop many of their peers in terms of memorable song structure and album flow, with Corroded making quite the impact even upon an initial, cursory listen." - Metal Army America
