What does the press have to say about Coeus? You're about to find out, baby!

[Aro] has produced a sound that would appeal to listeners interested in any genre of music. With his unbelievable talent to fuse instruments and his PC, he should be considered an unbeatable master of sound. Categorizing them as industrial rock doesn't even begin to combine all the sounds you will come to find by listening to this incredible album...
Gina Rossi @ Indie Music Reviewer

The sound that has been created is both open yet filled with detail and nuance. Influences abound: there's rock, prog, hip-hop, electronic, pop: under the guidance of a lesser talent this could quite easily have turned into a spectacular if never less than compelling mess. That it doesn't is to Mr Patterson's creative talent and focus...
Mat Davies @ Alternative Matter

The effort is advertised as a progressive rock project that will slowly kick your ass. Well, it's hard to merely label it "prog rock" but the latter part of the statement seems completely true cause The Boxing Titan Spawns slowly grows on you: when you listen to it for the first time, the overall impression is getting better towards the end of the album and additionally, your ass is in a real danger if you continue to examine the songs repeatedly...
John Moscow @ Review Maze

[O]ne thing I'll never do is knock creative ambition, artistic expression, and a passion for what one truly enjoys doing. And the creative force behind CTBT clearly, without question, has all of those things pretty well accounted for. And if Coeus the Boxing Titan wants to punch holes in the walls and barriers of how we might collectively define Rock & Roll - by all means, I'm willing to keep my mind open to listening to him do it. After all, we do have a certain fondness for people who actually want to push the god damned envelope, around here....
Mack Sabbath @ Rock Thought

This music has been lovingly crafted, but by hands that know when to stop fiddling, and certainly do not smooth off all the rough edges. It has been crafted to a strong artistic agenda, as well, one that stalks menacingly across its soundscapes like Coeus himself might (if he actually had any part to play in the mythology that spawned him)...
Oliver Arditi @ OliverArditi.com

The great thing about the progressive rock genre is that it's a big tent. And a welcoming one too. More than one quirky band that's contacted me that didn't see themselves as a prog band has found welcoming ears in the big tent. So with something that's a little unusual musically such as this Grand Rapids, Minnesota based band has produced I know they're going to find more than a few fans. To call their music unique is a bit of an understatement and yet it's not totally bizarre either....
Jerry Lucky @ JerryLucky.com

The band combined the sounds of Pink Floyd, Faith No More, King Crimson and Nine Inch Nails in a blender, turned it on high and out came this new album. It is a very exploratory album with soundscapes to expand the mind....
Justin Pasinski @ JP's Music Blog

Releasing The Boxing Titan Spawns has opened my eyes to a style uniquely its own. Heavy handed distortion and effect dependency certainly does not detract from the sound. The well thought out eleven tracks come in at least four plus minutes each but don’t bore. As “Tensions in Cloudland” eases the album open you’re quickly thrown into the grasps of Coeus. Singing lyrics such as “Battlefield Earth/The idea’s the fight” the intelligible sound flows with purpose, melting the tracks together on an identifiable but hypnotic experience....
