This is easily some of the best metal I’ve heard all year….”- Vince Neilstein, Metal Sucks
“With his new band stOrk, super-human Austrian drummer Thomas Lang has more going on than polyrhythmic trickery and ridiculous speed — but there’s still plenty of that too.” – Dave Constantine, Drum! Magazine
“If you're down with progressive, mind-blowing shred-rock, then the stOrk just delivered you a beautiful, bouncing baby that boasts some razor-sharp rock chops that could chew off Steve Vai's leg and devour Buckethead's KFC headgear in one satisfied gulp.” – The Word
"... Gibson’s ability to emphasize different pulses in each measure has evolved into a monstrous skill for creating compelling riffs. Combined with his penchant for heavy distortion and his love of 7-string guitars, these phrases often retain a pummel-you-in-the- chest feel while having a refreshing “odd meter” sound.” – Jude Gold, Guitar Player
