"Boyd Rice lost me when he went into the whole Social Darwinism spoken word bit. Whatever happened to looped noise, weird samples, tones and drones? Fear not, as God and Beast offers up a healthy compromise of the two styles. It still maintains his vocal presence with rather predictable rhymes and things, but the music it supports is what makes this one worthwhile. There are reprises of "songs" from his older albums such as "Total War" and "Out Out Out," reinvented and in some cases improved. Rose McDowall and Douglas P (Death in June) make appearances."
Innovative and progressive music for an iron youth

"as the all-fan-youngster of this kind of music that i am, i might not be so objective, but... the first thing that struck me was the nice layout of the cs-booklet. it is full of highquality pictures that gives you a good time while you listen to this masterpiece, created by mr Boyd Rice. i've seen him perform a couple of times in europe and this man can truely compose a massive noise/industrial soundscape. hate and love, might and weakness, thay are all the topics that mr Rice deal with, and that is what we call Abraxas. the track Between Venus And Mars gives you an idea of what Abraxas means, harsh rythms and good lyrics, i cant get enough of this one. guestapperance by Douglas P. and Rosie McDowall and last but not least, Dave Simmons... this cant be a no way - it is a yes way! buy it, or you will never be able to judge for yourself. if you are hesitating, just listen to this - there is a new version of the songs of songs, the allmighty Total War! if there where a new version of Vengeance on this cd, i would give it a nr 5 rating."
A satisfying listen!

"I personally think his IN THE SHADOW OF THE SWORD CD is the coolest,but this one's almost as great.Since the former CD is probably out of print this 'll do it for ya!I saw the man live prior to hearing this and he did some of this live.Well,versions utillizing looped vocals and a drum machine.Great stuff!This album is well-recorded and has a remake of SHADOW's TOTAL WAR.In person the man was very nice to my friends and I.I don't believe he's such a bad guy with hateful views."
