HERE'S WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT "ISOTOPE"



DECIBEL
"Overall, Isotope is a practically flawless record, knowing exactly what it is, and annihilating therein" 7/19

INVISIBLE ORANGES

"I absolutely love rip-roaring, crusty hardcore like Isotope: no frills, no filler, just hard and fast punches to the gut with straightforward riffing, and classic guitar solos even." 4/6/19

CVLT NATION
"Remember the name ISOTOPE, because they have created one of the SICKEST Hardcore // Crust records of 2019! This self-titled sonic weapon of destruction against all corruption is full of jams that are urgent and intense." 3/13/19


DAILY BANDCAMP
"It’s a crushing effort through and through that brings various flavors of hardcore to a rapid boil — Swedish crust, Tokyo stomp, Bay Area grind, even a dash of black n’ roll — only to slosh that noxious stew directly straight from the burner, directly onto your face. It’s short, it’s simple, and it’s probably my favorite metal album of the year so far." 4/5/19




NO ECHO
"Isotope soars through track after track of electrifying and powerful hardcore punk. Rarely slowing down to catch their breath, they paint a relentless and desperate cry in a world of madness." 3/29/19

LAST RITES
"...the album is awesome, energetic and infectious. Your legs will betray you in furious stomps as your face tenses up into what you’d look like if someone was throwing pieces of jagged plastic at you. Your hands will become fists, banging intermittently on inanimate objects that surround you." 3/28/19

DUSTED
"The band’s sound incorporates the elements of a popular recent recipe: several parts of buzzing chaos in the mode of G.I.S.M. or the Execute, one part of stench core’s burly bottom end, and a dash of the melodic song structure of mid-1980s street punk. It’s a combination that’s at once formulaic and formidable: easy to replicate, but hard to pull off with any sort of authenticity." 4/16/19

BROOKLYN VEGAN
"Across these eight, whiplash-inducing songs, you can hear the aforementioned Japanese hardcore and Swedish crust influences (plus a heaping dose of d-beat and some fiery metallic guitar solos), and Isotope are masters at this kind of stuff. If you like hardcore of any variety, it’s nearly impossible to deny this LP." 4/4/19
