“It has to be said that there are very few albums or EP’s that come to the listener as a genuine surprise in that they display that essence of originality. The Deepening Hole by the DRX, essentially the brainchild of Dan Romans, has that essence of surprise from the opening few minutes of ‘Love Has Lost the Meaning It Once Had’.” – Alternative Matter

“It says something about the DRX that the mellowest song on their album is a track about a dude disemboweling himself on stage and pulling his own guts out in a performance that would have made Sid Vicious cry a single tear of joy. This is a band that has a dude ripping open his chest cavity on the CD jacket. This isn’t a band that fucks around or pulls any punches. […] Their songs are aggressive without being overwhelming, sincere and emotional without being lame, and catchy without being fucking annoying – a difficult mix, but one they’ve nailed in this album.” – Ben Thompson (

“You know you have a winner, when after the 7 minute song ends, you want to hear it again. But you don’t, because it flows right into the next track.” – Avantgarde Metal
