"Bands like Twingiant only come along once in a while and we should embrace them for what they are. Proud of their independent roots, they like to play heavy and loud, but in doing so they have somehow found a crossover appeal. Let’s hope that this appeal crosses over to the masses as more people really do need to hear this band and Devil Down should be the album that starts the ball rolling. All hail Twingiant, the new kids in town!" - Echoes and Dust (March, 2015)
"Twingiant’s new album “Devil Down” is a moody affair, pairing heavy darkness with light glimmers of hope. With their keen sense of melody and the smart use of calmer instrumentals, the heavy moments on the album get even heavier. Twingiant’s song writing is on par amongst their peers but the way they create and play with atmosphere sticks out." - The Sludgelord (November, 2014)
"Devil Down provided me with a reality check, being that I crafted my list of 2014's favorites without having heard this album. Twingiant ease in and gradually throw back, introducing a sooty reality laced with surges, fades, and swoons. The detours are sticky and consoling, reflecting the band's commitment to finding harmony between evolution and allegiance. These seven tracks are distinctly Twingiant, but they're also fresh and dynamic. The sounds are never lost in the dust, never stuck in the mud, and never too high to die. And you may never want to stop listening."- Heavy Planet (February, 2015)
