“I’ve had the new CHMCL STR8JCKT album running on repeat since I got it in my hands. Finally, an industrial album I really can relate to instantly. Harsh but with melodies and great lyrics. A must have for a lover of old-school industrial with passion, balls and heart.” – Claus Larsen of Leæther Strip & Klute (about the self-titled debut)
“With their sophomore release, Wrtchd Thngs, CHMCL STR8JCKT doubles down on their hard driving old school industrial rock. This album is raw, pulsing, and seething. From the infectious guitar on ‘Ode to Peckinpah,’ to the pulse-pounding ‘Baphomet,’ to the guttural ‘Black Vulture,’ there is something for every industrial lover.” – Brian Fitzpatrick, author of Sci-fi thriller Mechcraft
“It’s been amazing to see the band grow into this unstoppable force and to see them create some of the best music I’ve heard in years.” – Steve Thomas-Green, DJ Ghost Wave Radio
