Revolver Magazine has included Flaming Tusk in their May/June 2010 “Golden Gods” issue.
‘[Flaming Tusk sound like] High on Fire and Immortal mud-wrestling in a blackened sludge pit full of blood, bile, lava and more blood.’ -Revolver

In advance of our upcoming show at Lit Lounge on 5/17, free weekly paper NY Press printed a profile on Flaming Tusk in their May 12 – May 18 issue which can be found lying around lower Manhattan in green litter dispensaries.
‘The singer sounds like the meanest motherfucker in the world, scratching out lyrics about the horror of Vietnam including the line that’s been stuck in my head for weeks: “Ho Chi Minh Kissinger!” The guitars seamlessly alternate between doom riffs and classic death metal with a solo that’s best described as Fast Eddie Clarke from Motorhead. The sidewalk shakes. I’m in the right place.’ -Adam Wisnieski, NY Press
The full text of the article is reprinted in the Music Features section of the NY Press website.
‘…I found myself drooling most over the heavier, crashing thrash and burn of “Cillaighfearn” or the crushing, abysmal-tongued power groove of “No Smiles”, which plays out like an armada of hellbilly circus freaks as they burn the goddamn Earth to ashes, ‘Stolas Trephinator’ going overboard at 2:30 with an insidious spoken word fill that had me both laughing fiendishly at the absurdity and clawing my own eyes out in terror.’ -Autothrall, From The Dust Returned
