"The album ticks all the boxes for what a great industrial rock album should be in 2015. There are those classic elements that are beloved by old school fans, but it is fresh, relevant, and most importantly, damn catchy."
- Sean M. Palfry, INTRAVENOUS MAGAZINE, April 2015
“The music is a fresh approach and the lyrics are poignant and easy to identify with. While it would be easy to compare this project to other bands, I think that it would be unfair to do so. Kiss Is Kill is completely original, with driving guitars, sexy beats, and vocals that are spot on. This is not some type of bubble gum industrial. This is industrial rock electronic at its finest.”
-Shibari Reiss, Coma Music Magazine Magazine, Dec 2015
“This is pure Industrial-Rock brilliance! The songs on this amazing, 10 track album are as diverse and exciting as you’d expect from a glorious experiment in sound, style and musical format. Songs like ‘Revelation’ and ‘Ready’ harken back to the days of Electro-Tribal drum assaults, distorted guitars, head bopping insanity, and a plethora of lurid images created by deliciously enjoyable lyrics.”
-John Crofts, 925 Rebellion, Oct 2015
“We receive a lot of material each week. But every so often a band or musician jump out at us and we just can't put them down. that would be (Kiss Is Kill). a word to the wise don't be next to this guy in a competition he will shut your sound down. all I can say is one kick ass musician”

"...bacon to the mouth for lovers of American-style industrial crossover names like Ministry, KMFDM or Cubanate...You will get a spontaneous ejaculation." -

- Metal Core Fanzine, Mar 2015
“This is an incredible industrial rock band headed up by James Chapple. I feel like James is my lyrical soul mate. I have never identified with lyrics the way that I have this album. It is fun, funky, and rocking!”
