New Reviews Of "Truth Button"

"Truth Button" has recieved some glorious press reviews of late and below are some quotes and links to the most recent ones.

"An album for those lovers of the bombastic variety a la Porcupine Tree and Black Sabbath’s intensity. Delusional, raw, uncensored and unvarnished truth in its most virulent and provocative shape." 5/5 ladyobscure

"These 6 songs will drag you down into their abyss of magical performance with meaning, as well as a great deal of talent: KingBathmat are definitely the band to be taken close notice of." rockbritain

"this will be the new big thing in prog land","this is already one of the most remarkable albums of this year. And possible already the best album of 2013 in the prog area" lordsofmetal

"Truth Button is released on 21st Jan and if you are a fan of the non Death metal version of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Genesis, QOTSA, then KingBathmat will be right up your street. An essential purchase for 2013 and its still only January. Your fave prog band you've yet to hear!" Roomthirteen

"think Black Sabbath colliding with the pop sensibilities of a group like Jellyfish or ELO with the force of a cannon fired, tabasco-studded enchilada." wideningeye

"Musically “Truth Button” is highly original. Imaginative, reflective and full of quirky twists and turns, the net result is a delightful mixture of techniques and sounds from both a bygone and modern age of atmospheric progressive music." Avenoctum

jerrylucky progressive rock files

 "This is a fantastic piece of independent, alternative/progressive rock music. And I haven't even heard the bonus tracks you get for your fiver. Now 9s out of 10 are normally reserved for albums that make our top five but this year has seen so many cracking releases that I'm moving the goalposts somewhat and giving 9s for stuff that makes my top ten. This has done just that, by a country mile." 9/10 DPRP

"Porcupine Tree, The Mars Volta and Radiohead are some of the best known groups keeping progressive rock up to date and with the times. KingBathmat (a name as odd as any you're bound to come across) aligns themselves with this forward thinking trend in progressive rock." progarchives

"Truth Button is an album that impresses instantly and then reveals more and more with each listen", "superb release" - adequacy

"an amazing amalgam of hard-to-define influences ranging from Pink Floyd, The Beatles and The Beach Boys to Black Sabbath, Foo Fighters and Spock's Beard" - 9/10 - sea of tranquility

"a well written, smartly composed collection of songs that will keep your attention from the first note and keep you hanging until the final seconds have ticked by" mass-movement
