"Mark down the year 2005 in your diary as the turning point when a supremely streamlined mixture of grind, tech, and death finally began to impose on larger metal audiences its viciousness as a musical style and a resolute defiance of traditional song structures. To this mix, add some breakdowns and a sextet of musicians, some of whom are barely into adulthood, and Montreal's Despised Icon are the sum." – Lambgoat

"From the immediate assault of “Bulletproof Scales” to closer “End This Day”, Despised Icon shatter musical pigeonholing with sheer girth; grindcore core fans will cringe at the shouted vocals and emphasis on huge grooves, while hardcore fans may find the blistering grindcore elements and cookie monster with a tracheotomy growls too intense. But those willing to just accept Despised Icon’s extreme crossover sound will be beaten to a pulp. Songs are hard to highlight as every breakdown hits the neck snapping sweet spot and every blast beat is a voracious display of technical savagery; the entire album is one long highlight." – Teeth of the Divine
