"Ok Deathcore, you can stop now. With 'Imperialist' the genre has reached its peak, and can go no further"
"Like a pissed off beast in season, the Imperialist EP from US metallers Cries Of The Captive is a raw and hostile slab of primal malevolence which only leaves appetite and ears wanting more of its exacting ferocity. It is a swamp of fury, an oppression of deathcore which from start to finish is rigorously compelling."
"Imperialist is a brilliant effort made by fans of deathcore for fans of deathcore."

Shows and Touring
"The band played well even without a bassist, everything was tight and loud! With the powerful vocals and extremely heavy breakdowns if this band were from Thailand, they would be famous throughout the Thai Deathcore Scene."
-Guitar Mag (Thailand)
