“slow-churning, anxiously abrasive… self-described as “psychedelic-doom-noise,” and that’s pretty accurate, although I’d argue there’s a solid sense of melody in most of their stuff, even if it’s not laying right there on the surface.” [Gordon Lamb, Flagpole Magazine]

“massively heavy” [Ben Braunstein, Creative Loafing ATL]

“Rat Babies share more than just an Athens, Ga., hometown with Harvey Milk; they find common ground in the slow and low. Rat Babies’ muck-tunneling sludge metal is cut with blues-guitar melodies like Harvey Milk but charged with charred-sounding amp fuzz like Weedeater” [Bryan Reed – Independent Weekly]

“sludgy bayou animosity in the vein of Melvins with a Halloween Town, stumbling from the graveyard with an armload of shovels, feel. The rhythm is slow and the lyrics are dark and repetitive battles with depression and substance addiction– driven home with a plodding and brutal momentum and a bass distorted to Jackson Pollock fog. Think of Atrayu pulling futilely at the reins of Artax as he sinks ever lower into a Swamp Of Sadness where lilly pads sprout hypodermic needles and the sun falls brown through soot stained clouds. A personal apocalypse with every track” [David – The Athens Secret Admirer]
