The Slants
Oregon Public Broadcasting: "It's tempting to peg the Slants in some existing Asian genre: Canto-pop, J-Metal, Viet Core....but they're not quite that simple."

Power & Politics: "The Slants rock really hard. For me, their pan-AAP identity is actually a very far second to their sound - I'd be proudly rocking this noise out of my stereos if The Slants were green and purple as opposed to yellow and white."

Fender Music Inst. Corp: "Powerful guitar and keyboard lines, combined with the darker but danceable tradition of their aforementioned musical heroes, immediately earned the group international press and a busy performance schedule."

Shojo Beat: SB-approved and on the hot list!

JRock Events USA: "The Slants is a powerful and brilliant band with a bold sound that will melt your face clean off"

LivePDX.com: "Asian dance rockers The Slants are carving out quite the niche in the vibrant Portland music community. Melodic niceties meld with edgy retro-futuristic resonance to create a familiar yet one-of-a-kind sound."

The Willamette Week: "Itís a great story: All-Asian synthcore troupe lands anime festival, achieves instantaneous notoriety from overpacked fireball-laden maelstrom, inspires John Woo and Dragon Ball Z fans toward aggro electro andójust months after its first practiceóbooks gigs across the globe. As shadow-warriory as the Slantsí rise has been, itís still all about the tunes, and the bandís debutófloor-filling synth pop bristling with all the menace and grandeur of its oft name-checked cultural iconsóis propulsive, cinematic and impossible to ignore."

Seattle Noise: "The band's smooth harmonies, infectious melodies and anthemic choruses have attracted young listeners -- dubbed "the Slants army" -- who love anime, video games and manga..."
