    Mentioning these ASG cats in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens Of The Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatment. [Jun 2013, p.92]

    The lyrics don't match the usually upbeat sound, and that disconnect helps make the band even more interesting.

    Even though this LP may not be a complete game-changer, they are certainly on the right path to come out with one sooner rather than later.

    As a result, Blood Drive is an entertaining (if somewhat safe) record--hopefully the first of many now that ASG is in the Relapse stable.

    The clashing of stoner and smart post-hardcore works wonders, while the crashing, booming production keeps things just clean enough for an extremely satisfying listen.

    Blood Drive is a strong album overall and a welcome sign that there is still life in the stoner rock or desert rock landscape.
