"Sibling Rivalry Digital 45 Review"

“Upon first hearing Sibling Rivalry I automatically note that this is the flagship song from the duo track digital E.P. it’s very melodic throughout, it’s hard to put it strictly into a pigeon holed genre, the closest I can put my finger on is Post-Melodic Hardcore with a commercial edge, with classic Metalcore vocals, a very well balanced harmonised clean vocal and a extraordinarily tight arrangement that is certainly expected by no second rate band. They even throw in a nice little solo which adds a metal element to the song” - The Metal Onslaught

"Thunder Underground Episode 110"

"This Life" has got it all! riffs, lyrics with deep meaning, vocals that will rip your head off, chorus that you're singing along to halfway through the song….. We're looking forward to hearing what else these guys got comin'. This song is a great debut! - Thunder Underground

"XIII Minutes - “Obsessed” [Album Review]"

“XIII Minutes newest release, Obsessed, is chock full of crunchy riffs, huge breakdowns and just enough melodic uniqueness to separate them.”
- Bruce Moore, Pure Grain Audio (Mar 27, 2019) - Pure Grain Audio

"XIII Minutes - Obsessed"

While the band features many stylistic influences (I hear notes of Parkway Drive, Demon Hunter, In Flames, and just a bit of Pillar at times, particularly in “Out of Time”), the CDs is remarkably consistent, both in volume levels and in the feel of each track. - The Phantom Tollbooth

"XIII Minutes – “Obsessed”"

The band uses different musical styles in the way a painter mixes hues. At the core, it’s always heavy metal - The Metal Resource

THIRTEEN, this number conjures up several images depending on who is observing it. Every thirteen minutes, one American will take their own life. Every thirteen minutes, someone in America dies in a motor vehicle accident. Every thirteen minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer and thirteen minutes is the time the warning sirens give before a tornado hits.

Insert XIII Minutes, the metal band from Tulsa, OK taking on the significance of thirteen in the spiritual realm. Thirteen Minutes is the time it takes every day to be spiritually fit. Thirteen is the number of great blessing. The number thirteen is the number of new life. God's number (seven) together with man's number (six) = Thirteen. The number thirteen is the difference of what man can do and what God can do.

The dichotomy that is thirteen, perfectly describes XIII Minutes as they work together to infuse such dichotomy into their music blending traditional elements of metal with a touch of post hardcore and nu metal in an effort to expand their sound beyond any particular genre definition.

Forming in Tulsa, OK in early 2016 out of the ashes of former projects, XIII Minutes aims to blend brutality with harmony, commercial and underground, the old and the new; taking on the sinful and the sacred. Let the dichotomy begin

XIII Minutes is set to battle on each and every stage in their path using their music to take on the darkness and infusing it with the light; Depression/Hope, Sin/Redemption, Darkness/Light, Evil/Good: The Dichotomies of Life. Let the battle exercise begin!
