"Martyr Bonus"

"For an unsigned act, Panther Attack are punching well above their weight and succeeding. With superb production for an independent release, the stop/start dynamics are at times jaw-dropping. Near impeccable musicianship, someone sign this band and fast."

"Martyr Bonus"

"Panther Attack seem to have a good balance between freestyle noodling, fast-paced time signatures, and a sense of melody."

"Panther Attack!"

"Panther Attack's strongest feature is the bright, staccato guitar that flutters through their rhythmic structures, but the band, featuring two brothers, also have an abrasive side. On their new EP, Sharp Moments (coming out in May), the band race through songs that summon badass swagger via thrashing riffs and driving percussion."

This night’s four-band bill was a veritable sample platter of guitar-based instrumental bands. Panther Attack, the only band on the bill to employ two full-time guitarists, showed quite an aptitude for intricate counterpoint. This penchant for meticulous nuance extended to the rhythm section, which would stop on a dime to clear space for a single pick scrape or pinch harmonic. Their collective demeanor was disarmingly reserved, which allowed them to display the full extent of their technical prowess without giving off a pretentious air. - West Coast Performer

Panther Attack performances are known for filling the room with excitement. Perhaps in anticipation of seeing two full drum kits facing each other on stage, the typical pre-show crowd chatter is often inspired by the potential complexity of the live duo. By the end of the night, most people will come again just to watch the band feed off each other's energy.

As an instrumental band that has been performing publicly since 2002, Panther Attack have remained an underground success. Plenty of like-minded bands have come and gone, also mastering their instruments, dynamics, and stage presence. It has been said that the difference with Panther Attack is that they bring soul back to an otherwise predictable routine of post/indie/punk/instrumental rock.

Their debut full-length, "Martyr Bonus", was self-released in 2007 and has received positive reviews both in the US and abroad. A follow-up 4-song EP, Sharp Moments, was released in May 2008 (see Beige Blades & Espionage a Trois)
