“That was cool!” – Doc Coyle, The Ex-Man Podcast, Ep. 6

“The strength of this band and their debut self-titled album comes from sheer musical technicality combined with the ability to craft quality songs that won’t be solely appreciated by musicians. There are enough soaring vocal melodies and more extreme vocal styles to appeal to more casual listeners.”

“The album flows together brilliantly allowing the listener to relax into its imagery.”

“The Assassins Creed is strong in this one. References aside, Animus Complex is an awesome newcomer worthy of your attention. Hailing from the desert of Arizona, the music Animus Complex makes is anything but desolate. Although the band is still in the early stages, it’s obvious there is serious potential here. Progressive Metal is the Animus’s weapon of choice. With groove and intelligent composition, they have released about an EP’s worth of tracks”
