"Thirteen tracks of blistering guitars, strong vocals and a pummeling rhythm section. Like the best hardcore albums, The Time is Now does not slow down, period. It's fast, Its pissed off. And it sounds great." Ian Jane www.rockshoppop.com

"You may have read that TLS has 3 ex-members of Shutdown and Mike (vocals) from Inhuman but I think it is time to take that factoid and put it on the back burner as TLS flat out shred and stand well on their own. Simply put this is a superior product to any of the previously mentioned bands. There I said it....this release catapults them up the chain to another level." Chris Wynne www.ineffecthardcore.com

"No weak tracks here... This is the type of album youcan listen to all the way through without hitting the skip button. Whether the band keeps it groovy or melodic or hits a heavier note, they never sound less than powerful."

THE LAST STAND
'The Time Is Now'
"There's very few bands around right now that capture the true essence – i.e. sound and spirit – of classic NYHC quite as well as The Last Stand. Featuring members of Inhuman and Shutdown, and having played constantly these last few years with old school legends like Agnostic Front, Madball and Murphy's Law, it's obvious to see that these guys live, breathe and love the genre. Indeed, Lou Koller from Sick Of It All guests on 'Watch You Go' and The Last Stand sound almost interchangeable with his regular band. You know what to expect from New York City – tight, lean grooves, insistent chugging riffs, bursts of breakneck speed and rousing gang back-ups – and The Last Stand deliver."
