    Extreme but accessible, they're best savoured with out namby-pamby earplugs, obviously. [Dec 2014, p.114]

    They’re up to the challenge of taking their colossal metal sound to the next level by making it even heavier. They’re up to the challenge of crafting even more memorable songs.

    [Earth Suck] gives off the sense that even the band don't quite know where they're going--but they'll have a fine, noisy time getting there. [Nov 2014, p.98]

    Oozing Wound have matured without losing sight of the frayed ends that make their music interesting.

    They're slightly slower and doomier this rime round, but no less fierce or fun. [Sep/Oct 2014, p.81]

    It does justice to the musical traditions it invokes, integrating them into dynamic, scrupulously constructed rampages that escalate at just the right moments and explode at just the right moments.

    It's compelling from start to finish; if OW's main is simply "to slay," then mission accomplished. [Nov 2014, p.81]

    Insistency and repetition are perhaps Oozing Wound’s most effective weapons.

    Throughout Earth Suck, Oozing Wound manage to deliver biting criticisms and headbanging riffs with their tongues in their cheeks, without either losing the power of the music or biting those tongues clean off.
