Intense, Textural, Articulate
“With larger than life riffs and explosive rhythm sections, you don’t need to listen for long to realize that each member of Steroid Puppets possesses outstanding technical ability. For headbanging, or to sit down and listen to every tiny detail, this project works both ways!” - Secret Eclectic Magazine
"Their debut album “Earthguest” is 42 minutes of fresh compositions that rival the best in the aforementioned sub-genres in all aspects: playing, production and songwriting." - The Prog Space
