    This is the first proper full-length from the band, after a few other offerings -an EP, a few odd singles, a march-happy runway score -and three songs in is about where the realization sets in that Violens have finally offered up that worthy successor to that previous work with that other band (you know, the one they're tired of seeing mentioned in reviews).

    The New Yorkers' debut is retro but refreshing. [Dec. 2010, p. 106]

    Factor in fearlessly slick production and attitude and Violens have managed to create the ultimate gorge-fest. Loosen your belt and dig in.

    For something drawn from so many obvious sources, Amoral is refreshingly original.

    While Violens may know their sonic touchstones inside and out, they're better sticking to the haircut-obsessed sounds showcased on Amoral's standouts.
