“an aura of cult-like spiritual reverence… its hazardously industrial environs an exhausting maze of rubble that truly tests the stamina.” (Metal Hammer)
“They have that sense of music being crushed out of them that all the best heavy Brum bands have… that same dazed, extreme feel of oppressive concrete overload that Sabbath and Godflesh and Nathrakh and Mistress had” (The Quietus)
“khost may just be the future of doom, drone, and just plain old loathing… This is what Godflesh was supposed to sound like” (Deaf Sparrow)
“khost bring the industrial back to this Brummish land of abandoned factories and broken glass” (Sleeping Shaman)
