"Kowloon Walled City does raw about as right as it can be done. The band recorded their debut EP, "Turk Street," themselves, but I can't imagine anyone else doing them more justice. I would argue that Kowloon Walled City are really in the tradition of that sound that happened in the late 90s when hardcore kids discovered heavy music. Bands like Jesuit and Coalesce upped the noise ante without losing any of the sort of anti-rock urgency that makes hardcore what it is. Kowloon Walled City pull that sound off beautifully. They're noisy, raw, and urgent, with harsh, shrieked vocals, but they also carry a pretty thick low end. They're a real great combination of the kind of raw noise of the above mentioned bands mixed with a sort of modern stoner/sludge thing. I really dig it."
"Listening to KWC is like putting my head in a hydraulic press while my toes get crushed d by a U clamp."
"Their sound is a potent mixture of monumental, crushing riffs; crusty, hardcore-tinged vocals; and deliberate, groove-oriented drumming. The production on Turk Street is fantastic-- sludgy and raw yet clear and crisp. These guys clearly know the sound they want and are able to achieve it in the studio."
