“excellent, gothy” – A-SIDE
“Not only does this song sound like it was recorded in the studio next door to Echo and the Bunnymen in 1981, the video for these Toronto new wave punks’ single catches some snippets from the era of big black hair, egyptian eyeliner, skinny ties and moshpits. Love it.” – YVYNYL
“Mausoleum is more about evoking an era, that very first tip over from punk into Goth and New Wave, than about echoing any one particular band. The Toronto trio has certainly got the frantic energy of that period – still punkishly aggressive and combative even as it flirted with the prettiness, melodrama and keyboards to come – down pat on the three curt, energetically brooding post-punk ditties collected on this set. They are, thus, more Easy Cure than the Cure and more Warsaw than Joy Division and, for that reason, sound a bit more refreshing (and a bit more authentic) than a lot of the bands currently looking to that time and that side of the Atlantic for inspiration” – THE STAR
“Mausoleum draws freely from the entire well of post punk, tipping their collective hat to brooding goth, new-wave and british punk. And that video…oh that video. A montage of high-energy hardcore/punk gigs, some Black Flag footie, snogging teenagers (is that Sue Catwoman?), skinheads smashing their heads together, skinny-tied trendies pogoing away and requisite stage diving…it’s like a punk rock video history lesson” – TOME TO THE WEATHER MACHINE
“Mausoleum’s “Hunters” plummets to the depths, where dark energy, obscure electronic noise and a hint of gothic new-wave make the cobwebs vibrate – a rave in the dark” – BLOGTO
