  • PRESS QUOTES:

    • Columbus, OH's Mount Carmel still believes in rock 'n' roll -- you know, the real stuff with charging guitars and drums meant to stir the loins before the brain cells... And I mean that in a good way. – POPMATTERS
    • While many bands have dived headfirst into revivalist rock, there's something about Mount Carmel's sound that would make it seem plausible to see their name on an old poster for a Cream show. And like its title implies, Get Pure's beauty lies in its simplicity. With just guitars, bass, drums, and tons of glorious fuzz, Mount Carmel's sound is about as simple as it gets, eschewing experimentation in favor of making bona fide, by-the-book rock & roll. They approach songwriting the same way a historic preservationist might approach renovating an old house, painstakingly restoring the music to its former glory so that future generations may experience the pleasures of pure, unadulterated hard rock for the first time. – ALL MUSIC
    • Mount Carmel didn't invent the wheel with their new disc, but they did put a whitewall on it. – GLACIALLY MUSICAL
    • This Columbus, Ohio, trio is on its third LP, but its sonic theme and rock attack are still situated in the kind of bluesy rock developed by Cream and Led Zeppelin and cranked from high school parking lots nationwide. - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL
    • Eschews flowery details in favor of bulldozing, blues-rock riffage. - COLUMBUS ALIVE Mount Carmel boogies so hard it sounds like hardcore. - ROCTOBER
    • Filling the airwaves with some good old rock ‘n roll noise, Mount Carmel take the stage. Their new album, Get Pure, is sure to please those with a tasteful ear. The band, comprised of James McCain, Matthew Reed and Patrick Reed, deliver a classic sound. Simple riffs and strong vocal presence give way to delicate solos, alluding to one big jam session. It’s a simple formula, whose positive results arise from the talents of the three gentlemen at the helm..- BLUES ROCK REVIEW Mount Carmel reeks of surging guitar riffs and thunderous backbeats. Think Free or a more nimble, less self important Led Zepp. They’re a power trio in the truest sense of the term. “Get Pure” is the third album in as many years for Mount Carmel and shows it in its swaggering confidence. The music's of a time but also, in a way, now also timeless. It’s unclear what they put in the water out Ohio way but let’s hope the still doesn’t get shut down soon. - I-94 BAR
    • "No-frills blues-rock." - NPR ALL SONGS CONSIDERED
    • "An authentic-sounding homage to rough-and-tumble late-'60s/early-'70s boogie rock legends like Free and Humble Pie. As a power trio, Mount Carmel bash out hard-edged gritty soul riffs, with perfectly approximated Cream-style raunch and Stones-style swagger. The songs ring true to the bell-bottom era, but are constructed in a way that the band is never slavishly ripping off its influences. The highlight is undeniably the band's musical chemistry, one that strikes a perfect balance for people who like muscular jams and those who want to howl along." - ALL MUSIC
    • "Mount Carmel wants you to concentrate on big amps, loose jams, joints the size of zeppelins and, ahem, the need for real women. They have no time for trends, punk or atonal garbage. Save it for your blog. " - THE AGIT READER
    • "Let us celebrate the return of thee one, thee only non-bullshit hard rock band in goddamn America with the praise that’s due them: if their last album was perfect, this one is a step past it, attaching itself straight onto the legacy of the music they practice." - DUSTED MAGAZINE
