"Metal lifers who complain about kids today not going hard enough obviously need to plug their pie-holes with a healthy dose of Sarcator. The Swedish four-piece, whose ranks include the son of The Crown’s Marko Tervonen, are all still in high school, and yet they play the kind of savage death-thrash that most old-school fans live for. With their upcoming self-titled debut, Sarcator will instantly make a name for themselves in the underground — and will stand as a firm reminder that young metal fans will always be down to make music that sears the inside of your brain."
- The Pit
"As soon as I started to listen to the album, the first thought that came up was a very early and young Dissection, but a more thrashy sound...Be prepared for some excellent death/thrash metal when you get your hands on the album when it’s out!"
- Swedish Metal.nu
"Sarcator resembles groups like Vio-lence or Forbidden who weren’t afraid to take their songs in different directions whenever a new riff felt appropriate. In contrast to those legends, however, Sarcator has a rougher, darker edge, particularly from the throaty vocals that resemble an even more brutal early Mille Petrozza or Tom Angelripper."
- Skull Fracturing Metal
"This is bone crushing thrash/death metal with tons of catchy hooks, MEMORABLE tunes and plenty of ripping speed to back this baby up. Death metal vocals that I totally dug and that guitar sound is mint! This is a great mix of death/thrash metal no doubt about it. It combines the speed and intensity of both styles like a best of attack of both. The production is perfect and this is a release not to be missed I can tell ya that."

Three tracks in on my first listen, and I smashed that 'purchase' button!
What a feast of razor sharp thrash-infused OSDM riffs - interspersed with the kind of shred you'll find in your collection of 90s Floridian death metal CDs. Raspy vocals, BUT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE LYRICS! Lethologica82
