"Highly combustible, jam-packed with jagged disharmony and overdriven to the brink of collapse. Plaque Marks sound absolutely filthy here. The distorted crunch that hangs over the entire production has enough character to be an instrument unto itself..."
"Even comparatively barbaric noise rock bands like Unsane sound positively reserved and sophisticated compared to this squall... Cruelly effective."
"Rising Philly noise rock royalty Plaque Marks... Nasty in all the right ways."
"Brimming with crusty swagger, rages like Pissed Jeans at their most shambolic... With machine precision, the three-piece stomp and gnash, lurching propulsively..."
"A new musical outfit out of Philly that reminds me of the sonic brainfuck of bands like Hell No, Jesus Lizard, and Glazed Baby."

The self-proclaimed "stain on the smile of the Philadelphia music scene," Philly noise-rockers Plaque Marks have unveiled new song "Urban Blighters."
"Urban Blighters" appears on debut EP Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship, due for release this Friday, October 27th, on Learning Curve Records. and Reptilian Records.
Plaque Marks comprises members of Creepoid, Fight Amp, Ecstatic Vision, and The Powder Room. Caveman drumming, tooth-rattling bass, painfully distorted guitars, and buried yells are the elements at play, and on Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship they sound like they were recorded with one lone mic, hanging from a noose in a Philly warehouse. As Invisible Oranges editor Ian Cory puts it, "Highly combustible, jam-packed with jagged disharmony and overdriven to the brink of collapse. Plaque Marks sound absolutely filthy here. The distorted crunch that hangs over the entire production has enough character to be an instrument unto itself..."
