What they’re saying about THE LOCUST:

“The Locust’s spazz-core metal recalls The Passion of the Christ, except they’re nailing rock music to the cross. If I’d seen TV footage of them when I was nine, I’d have wet the bed every night for the next two decades. ” – Rob Harvilla for

“Guitar parts splayed like roadkill. Bass lines so chaotic they disturb your stomach. Drums pounded as if by machines. Their songs routinely clock in at under 60 seconds, yet are composed with such care that they demand an hour of listening. And all of it is splattered with an overlay of Jackson Pollock keyboards; buzzing, humming, swarming sounds; seagull-screech voices; cruel humor and confounding style.” Alec Bemis for LA Weekly

“…if you’re gonna flail and gnash your teeth, then flail and gnash your teeth like your life depends on it. Which is why the highest compliment I can give to a band like San Diego’s the Locust is: they could almost be Japanese.” Scott Seward for Decibel Magazine
