"Santa Ana, California's Saint Blasphemer's new record, Theotokos is a high energy five track EP of crunchy riffs, ratcheting drums and bellowing vocals...If you feel that Tool lost its cool- Saint Blasphemer is the answer for you. They've kept that fury distilled at high proof."
"Rock has a new powerhouse."
– Beat Media
"It would be a fallacy to pick one or two tracks of the five presented to call stronger than the others, it simply would be untrue. ‘Theotokos’ is a like a punch to the dick, but in a good way."

Saint Blasphemer - Simon Templar EP Reviews:
"This is one hell of a debut EP, with lyrics about the effects of drugs and how bad it is for those left behind and what they have to deal with. This is something that most bands don’t and can’t handle well, but this was a masterpiece of lyrics and thoughts…plus the playing is pretty damn good too."

"The hard hitting opening is what will draw listeners in. It not only sets the tone for their EP but it also stands constant throughout."
