“It’s a pretty snarling beast that has no time to waste proving itself to any ears not immediatley in-tune with its take no prisoners musical approach. So whether you take it or leave it, its pretty difficult to ignore it” - Rocksound
“The trio offers up a relentless slice of math-core, filled with all the typical musical breakdowns, time signature massacres and outer space-size riffs you would expect of the genre. The band keep this all up without the need for a vocalist, whether this is a stylistic choice or not being able to find a vocalist mentally distressed enough to sing along is up for debate” - Goldflake paint
“Alright The Captain are lords of the slippery ear worm, just when you think you’ve caught hold of the idea, they’re onto the next one” - One Beat
“If you like math rock with dirty ass bass, guitars that get right up in your grill & beats that only Ian Curtis could get away with dancing to, then ATC are going to tick ALL the boxes for you. Live they are without doubt one of the most thrilling prospects out there, positively fizzing with energy and intent” - Echoes and Dust
