The best kept secret in music



I have to tell you. I got my money's worth on this one. These guys have the raw energy that makes a great band and the technical skills to back it up. Props to the boys on a great effort. 5 f'ing stars to ya! - Lucky 13.

"Enigma magazine"

Playing what they call "rebel metal," the band puts on a full furious assault on their audience, taking no prisoners. - Dave Weinthal

"Transcending the Mundane"

Chokeslam tend to strike quick. Generally, a short intro will lead into Gray's intense screaming. The first few tracks ("The Reaper Man", "Bluh", and "FRVP") are the best. - Brett VanPut

"Make a Star"

"The Reaper Man" was among the top 16 scoring songs during the week of 12/11/2001. - Industry Review Board
