“Country goes metal – One of the more inventive musical acts to hit the local circuit in recent years is Them County Bastardz “T.C.B”, based in Leamington.This screamo quintet combines beer-swilling, redneck swagger with Pantera-like intensity.” – Windsor Star
“Get ready to fist-pump, “Sick Daze,” the new album from the old schoolin’ and good timin’ band, Them County Bastardz, is just what we’ve been looking for…a great metal album, with great technical playing and vocals all wrapped up in a raw, southern fried vibe. Plus, its also a damn good time. With hints of Pantera, Hell Yeah, Godsmack and a healthy heaping of southern rock, Them County Bastardz have made an album that you can throw on, crack a beer and fits pump and head bang too. Hell, if you feel like it, air guitar to the sick guitar solos on tracks like, “Buzzkill” “The Bastard” “Rise Up” and “Drive By.” Just buckle up and enjoy, what in this humble Bro’s opinion, is a damn good album. With a Bro-Metal rating of, 8/10, Them County Bastardz, have a hit on their hands. With a release date of, 2.24.15, go pre-order, “Sick Daze,” and get ready for hell raising, beer drinking, metal glory.” – Bro-Metal
“Once upon a time, metal was actually fun, no really. And the splendidly named Them County Bastardz harken back to that era. What you got here are some seriously well-written riff-based tracks (crushing riffs, real’ wall of sound’ stuff) in the vein of Black Label Society and Pantera circa Cowboys From Hell. There’s also something of Alice In Chains in there too. Good influences, but Them County Bastardz have a strong personality all of their own. Overall, it’s like some crazy concept album. I kept thinking of Smokey and the Bandit as I listened to it. Indeed, it’s feel good stuff all the way, a great joke at the expense of the dire band Extreme (never was a band more badly named! Pathetic would have been a more apt moniker). The production, by the band and a certain Chris Towle, is first class. As a constructive suggestion, not a criticism, I detect an AC/DC influence, and I’d like to hear them do more of this in future. Overall, a damn fine album!” – Hellbound.ca
“If you love when the words “fun” and “metal” go together, in special when there are talented and enthusiastic musicians behind that mix, this album will certainly put a smile upon your face while you’re having a beer and banging your head with your metal buddies.” – The Headbanging Moose
“With the new NASCAR season just around the corner, this album would go well with it and the game of cornhole that’s sure to break out. Crack open a sixer and enjoy the sounds from our neighbors. You’ll be glad to check this one out if you’re a fan of Hell Yeah, Black Label Society, or Pantera.” – National Rock Review
