"… try to imagine Deliverance (yes, the group of Christian Thrash) taking Voivod on a Wehrmacht tempo, with the sense of the destabilization of Vektor, under the artistic direction of Captain Beefheart and Devin Townsend … evoking their most distant past, when the Thrash was dissonant and speed was his daily bread … after all, I fuck linearity. AFTERMATH also."
9 / 10
"AFTERMATH are a band who could write a biography to best most others with only a single full length album in 25 years, and 'There is Something Wrong' feels like the perfect book end to that 25 year chapter of the band and hopefully the start of something new because this is a very good album … its fast, proggy, catchy and down right furious at ... well everything."

"… a quirky progressive Metal amalgam with Thrash still leading the show … there’s a bit for everyone here …"

"… existed since 1985 and has released only one album - the excellent 'Eyes Of Tomorrow' of 1994 … now comes the second … a good Thrash Metal album … never really been fashionable … definitely interesting and recommended to anyone who likes Voivod …"
(World Of Metal)
8 / 10
"… a collective amount of unprecedented Thrash Metal madness; fueled finesse, and impressive culminations of dominating captivation … AFTERMATH assault a bombarding blitz of menacing waltz of toxic volleys that wave with obscure innovation, evolving eccentrics in which supply unparalleled weight and revolving meatiness - good stuff."
8 / 10
"… who still does remember the guys from Chicago who started as a Crossover Thrash band, changed to technical Thrash releasing their one and only, super cult and amazing 'Eyes ...' 1994? They return after 25 years with 'There ...' - an album that sounds so strange in the modern reality, but its so perverted beautiful … mixes crossover with their 90s tech Thrash age, Voivod-elements … dystopic lyric concept which could be found to any Fear Factory album … do you dare enough to try it, or do you dislike the experiments?"

"They play like fucking deities, too …"
7,5 / 10
"… increasingly embraces this technical side, progressive and experimental, but without forgetting the Thrash roots of the early career, making this a good job and another great release of this iconic band … worth to check out … … shows how a band can mature and evolve musically with dignity, without losing quality and leave aside its formative roots."

"… if you like similar polarized bands like Coroner, Anacrusis or Atheist, you will be able to do something with AFTERMATH, too."
7,5 / 10
"... much edgier than ever ... often roaring vocals and brute guitars make 'There Is Something Wrong' looks like an angry outcry ..."
7,3 / 10
"… Thrash Metal and Hardcore, Progressive and Crossover … AFTERMATH continue with their denunciation against harmful policies and a society in disarray … extreme music, which does not fail to surprise by an excellent instrumental preparation of the protagonists … between Devin Townsend and Voivod … Metal outside the box, not a little rebellious."
3,5 / 5
"Machine Head reminds among the reference points, but there is also the Body Count street violence and a pinch of Voivod genius … Charlie Tsiolis sings as if he were in a street gang … charge and energy are unquestionable …"

"… 11 maniacal tracks … a wild ride … muscular '80s Thrash vibe … pure chaotic energy …"

"... no light food, musically as well as lyrically ... old-schoolish Crossover Thrash Metal with high technical influence respectively progressive elements ... snappy, sometimes very aggressive ..."
4 / 7
"... as if they had beamed to us directly from the year 1985 ... could also be loosely from the nineties ... somewhere between Voivod, Rage Against The Machine, M.O.D., Exodus and, in short melodic moments, Megadeth ... ambitious as well as at a technically high level."
10 / 15
"… an unusual group in all respects, which also goes their own way on their - almost a quarter of a century after the debut appearing - second work 'There Is Something Wrong' ... a crude, sometimes bulky clod, which covers both the crossover and the technical phase of the band ... a record for everyone and no one ... very exciting!"
"… AFTERMATH is able to refine the Thrash Metal style of M.O.D. and early Metallica into an art form."
"This album is f***ing awesome from start to finish."
(The Dirty Room)
"It’s bullish, belligerent and fueled by anger ... it will punch your f***in’ teeth in!"
"It really packs a punch."
"I can't even begin to tell you how badass this entire album is."
(Boston Rock Radio)
"This one will be difficult to knock of the Gauntlet's Top 10 list for the year."
"AFTERMATH is back with another album of wild Thrash."
"This album will score the hearts of listeners old and new."
(Silence Is The Enemy)
"What lies within the message of the songs on 'There Is Something Wrong' is the truth etched into the songs with a fervor."
"… cynical take on the leading gurus of our time … furious smashing …"
(The Median Man)
"… raw energy of old school Thrash to formulate a theatrical apocalyptic album enhanced with electronica, early grunge, Voivod-esque progressive post-Thrash and atmospheric music …"
(Dave Wolff, Autoeroticasphyxium Zine)
"Twenty-five years after 'Eyes Of Tomorrow', singer Kyriakos Tsilopolis, denounces the political and social situation through pieces of peculiar musical aggression … here the message submits the style, the form is adapted to underline the discomfort … a direct link to a brave past. Follow it."
(Flight Of Pegasus)
"From the point of view of quality, a good job of mixing and production … all 47 minutes of the album run smoothly and without tiring … they know how to make the most of each instrument and know how to write not bad pieces … will be appreciated by all thrash lovers, but also by those who are looking for something rude and aggressive for their ears."
"… the gang in the texts really succeeded in awakening, because they are clear, aggressive, and directly communicating the message … extremely thought-out, just like connecting parts between one and the other song … really worth listening to."
"AFTERMATH chose not the easy path … instead of releasing a conventional record, they chose to make a concept album for their comeback … at the age of internet scrolling they chose to deliver a message … definitely needed guts … for the devoted … Crossover Tech Thrash/Progressive Metal … you need to listen in its entirety to understand it and feel it!"
"… straight ahead and writing about politics as there were nobody to censor them … this ‘we-don’t-care’ attitude is great, if I may, just because no one is safe from their criticism … and this is healthy to an extreme music band … variety of cadence, speed, and influences making it a pleasant album to hear also avoiding to be redundant."
"… a strong album ... AFTERMATH combine tradition and modernity …"
"… the beginning of "False Flag Flying" can bring to mind MEGADETH's 'Rust In Peace', and the album continues with a very catchy 'Diethanasia' … we can verify that the dynamics of the album is going to be quite erratic: frenetic and aggressive passages are interspersed with more avant-garde parts … in many occasions both things combine, offering fragments of punk orientation …"
"… very impressive … with some incredible interesting elements … I love the industrial touch … very well executed … a great listen …"
"… greatly surprised by the variety of sounds, versatility and changes in fast-paced rhythms, where the singing voice of Kyriakos 'Charlie' Tsiolis, takes a vital role in the songs as assuming the role that corresponds to a singer … the rest of the musicians, in a fresh way and violent at times plays their instruments without mercy and with that freneticism so particular of AFTERMATH …"
"… the sound of AFTERMATH has become more raw and direct, decidedly contemporary with taste of VOIVOD genius … Kyriakos Charlie Tsiolis, sings as if he was leading a protest where charge and energy is unquestionable and lift the dynamics of the album with erratic, frantic and aggressive passages … certainly not betray those fans who have not forgotten the group and their undying passion."
(Voices From The Darkside)
"… there’s nothing wrong here; in fact, there can be nothing wrong with a reunion of one of the finest acts to ever come out of the enormous US Metal roster ... the band have made a cross over their repertoire starting with the more Thrashcore-prone early days to which belongs the shorter, more stripped-down material …"
(The Thrash Metal Guide)
"… a very interesting record … not only is it musically intense but it bears a very deep lyrical message … very angry and in your face … sounds technically superb … deliver the goods on every single track … AFTERMATH is a well-oiled machine ready to go to war!"
