"With looping drum arrangements, distorted, echoing vocals and swirling guitar feedback, the band creates unexpected beauty from the dark and murky world of noise."
"And like the Frankensteinian monster it is, debut album ‘Looming’ wanders around, clumsy and aimless, smashing the shit out of anything in its path; mostly, your ears."
"'Looming' is a blend of hard and heavy electronica, stirred in with all manner of riffage. Just imagine Daft Punk with plenty more guitar and we'll be singing from the same hymn sheet."
"A sonic blast of twin guitars interlocked in a clashing competition of dissonant riffing through a relentless 'Mo Tucker' pounding groove."
"Great single from this Brighton three-piece who sound like Krautrockers Can at their woozy pyschy, drone-rocky best. It's built round a nagging, insistent groove and their focus remains true."
"The tracks on debut album 'Looming' weave between primordial bone-shakers, stretched-out growls and ethereal retro-pop nuggets."
"...Please join me on a descriptive journey through our debut album 'Looming'. Ok, I'm having to download it..."
"Negative Pegasus will melt down all your shit records with lethal vibrations."
"I don’t necessarily feel that music has to be ethereal to be “psych”, it can be super harsh and guttural too… I guess it depends what kind of visions you're hoping to invoke."
"Neg Peg have the noble ambition of wanting ‘people that have heard Negative Pegasus not to be able to hear anything else because they are now deaf and/or insane.’"
"'Looming' is a record that can turn contemporary UK rock upside down."
"Ones to look out for’ over the next year or so..."
"This is, for lack of a better phrase, some heavy shit."
"It’s dark and droning, but anyone will find it difficult to resist being pulled in by the twists and turns."
So what is a negative Pegasus? A horse with no horn?
"Melting Our Consciousness Into A Slippery Field Of Kaleidoscopic Vision"
This is the sound of a band in sonic meltdown, yet so impossibly in control as their sci-fi psychedelia hits the spot.
"Negative Pegasus are calling what they do repetition rock - and never has a style been so aptly named or clung to.."
'Floating Omen' is taken from the Brighton band's forthcoming debut album 'Looming' and will come out through Smalltown America Records this month.
"Axis Of declared their intention to play shows in each of Ireland's 32 counties."

"I have a sneaking fondness for music that sounds like your [record] player is broken..."
""Pyschic Energy’s" Sabbath meets Refused squall all the way to "Visitations" apocalyptic, feedback soaked climax. "

'The drummer’s relentless beat led the way as acid visuals flowed upwards, and the bass-less guitarists followed her lead.'

'Industrial guitar squeals and some pained banshee howls coating cyclic, juddering grooves, the sound of rock n roll locked into an eternal 8 bar loop while the world outside collapses'
'Negative Pegasus' sound is a world away from their sunny, seaside home in Southern England... consisting of sheets of guitar feedback floating above primal, pounding drums.'
'The band are reportedly influenced by "the consciousness expanding New York repetition-rock of Oneida, the free-time whirl of Sightings, the shamanistic stomp of Knyfe Hyts and the joint-snapping mathematics of KILLL and Zu".'
