“Canada already has a name for producing quality technical acts since times immemorial … here comes an act to provide not only a worthy competition to the perennial champions Voivod, but to also claim a firm spot at technical thrash metal greatness on the world metal map for its homeland.”- www.thethrashmetalguide.com
"Headliners Armifera are a force that really needs to be seen to be believed. This is a band that understands the potency of presentation. Armifera for me, and for as many people that I have talked to about them, is synonymous with lasers, flags, barb wire mic stands and ferocity. I love the band’s unpredictability, speed and, of course, showmanship. Armifera’s rhythm section has a brilliant arrangement of influences from the brutal stylings of Lamb of God and Cannibal Corpse to the mathematical and technical rhythms found in Tool and prog-era Rush. Damian S. Dunwoody is incredibly dynamic and visually intimidating in his performance as lead vocalist. At times he delivers the high pitch iconic screeches of Rob Halford of Judas Priest and at others the power metal belting of Dream Theater’s James LaBrie."

"Armifera is a progressive thrash metal band with speedy musicianship and solid stage presence. It’s always good to see a bassist holding his tongue in place while attempting a complex riff at high tempos. The band gets extra points for their well developed personas. Their front-man made their performance especially memorable by swinging from the rafters, rocking a barb wire covered mic stand and a big Armifera banner that he wielded alongside his comrades and their axes. So Metal."
