‪“With their excellent full-length debut Cactides, we can now add TITAN TO TACHYONS to the list of modern purveyors of this stylistic niche, such as Behold… The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia, and Ground Patrol. […] And while it’s definitely cliché to compare a “weird” rock band to Primus at this point, the instrumentation on Cactidesis frequently reminiscent of albums like Antipop. […] But TITAN TO TACHYONS balance their dazzling musical abilities with equally impressive songwriting, which combine to produce an album that you can’t help but surrender your psyche to until the final note rings out.”‬ – Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Cactides consists of five medium-length instrumental tracks that are influenced by 50 years of metal and progressive rock, rearranged and mutilated for 2020. But Gates and company go beyond the tropes of these genres, incorporating heavy riffing, speed picking, feedback, and arpeggiated chords into unconventional structures and throwing in a dash of open improvisation here and there. […] For anyone who is disappointed by how slowly the heavy metal genre evolves and progresses, look no further than Cactides as a counterexample to that trend. Gates is a major voice, and Cactides could be her breakout appearance. Well done, indeed.” – Avant Music News

“A band featuring current and former members of Orbweaver, Gigan, Secret Chiefs 3, Imperial Triumphant, Cleric, and John Zorn promises to be weird and TITAN TO TACHYONS does not disappoint. Led by guitarist Sally Gates (ex-Orbweaver, ex-Gigan), the trio blast through six minutes of off-kilter heaviness that is equal parts melodic and dissonant. Take opening track “Morphing Machineminds” as an example—the track is all over the place with its ideas and tempo, but TITAN TO TACHYONS never go off the rails.” – Decibel Magazine
