Music Video For “Murdered Love” Out Now HERE
Still building big-chorus riff bombs designed to set off the youth of the nation…Murdered Love is best when all the anthemic stuff comes equipped with the sort of infectious grooves that the band’s SoCal stomping ground is known for.”- Revolver Magazine

“SoCal rap-metal band brings back the boom after a four-year absence, sounding like the hook-laden harbinger of a spiritual apocalypse. The mix of metal, dub and hip-hop recalls 1999’s The Fundamental Elements of Southtown and 2001’s Satellite.”       – USA Today

“The songs all bear the band’s trademark heavy groove that is nicely accentuated by Sonny Sandoval’s unique rap-influenced delivery..the ultra-melodic tunes “Higher” and “Lost In Forever”, for me they have the perfect blend of heaviness and melody. Murdered Love is the band’s best effort in many years.” Puregrainaudio
Murdered Love is purportedly a back to basics affair that finds the band re-investigating their initial influences of rap, punk rock, and reggae.”AllMusic
“P.O.D. comes out swinging like the four riders of the apocalypse… Murdered Love is a return to the bare-knuckled, breakdown-laced fusion of hip-hop, hardcore and ska-rock found on the multi-platinum Satellite.” – Google Music
