"If gloriously oppressive sonic squalls of reverb-drenched electric guitar are your idea of bliss, Heat Death's album will make you happy indeed."
- Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"No, Heat Death’s latest probably isn’t the secret to a happier life. Rather, 9 Steps To A Happier Life is a collection of life’s more sour notes that have been distorted, amplified, and reassembled into something sweet."
- Tyler Maas, Milwaukee Record
"Heat Death is music for anyone who has laughed out of awkwardness or in a moment of fear. They are the soundtrack to accepting your mortal fate with a smile and a shrug."
- Dan Agacki, Shepherd Express
"The key to happiness might be found in embracing chaos. 9 Steps to a Happier Life, the debut full-length from post-punk band Heat Death, certainly lives up to that ideology, which forgoes any hooks for a barrage of noise and a brutal rhythm section."
- Kevin Mueller, Milwaukee Magazine
"If you’re looking for a record that combines power, energy, and a little bit of hysteria, you’ve come to the right place."
- Allen Halas, Breaking And Entering
"Crank this up and bum out your neighbors who won't stop listening to 311 and drinking Corona."
- Ongakubaka Records
