“[Whales and Leeches] is a record that's heavier than their usual brutal boogie: hyper-charged bulldozer riffs, lyrics about a doomed winter and death tolls, and bellowed vocals that recall burly forefathers like Mastodon and Baroness. The group has upped their own ante, whether they intended to or not.” -SPIN (Album of the Week)

“Every song sounds lean and mean, produced for the exact effect extracted in the time given. Red Fang forged their sound into the new stoner rock benchmark, and [Whales and Leeches] will be regarded as their best full album to date, kick back with a PBR and enjoy.” -Metal Injection

“The new album, the band's third, finds them further maturing into top-notch songwriters and musicians. The Portland, Oregon-based group have delivered an epic record for fans of guitar-driven rock.” -Revolver Magazine

“high-gloss, high-impact, catchy-as-all-fuck stoner-sludge…’Blood Like Cream’ is the first single to be released from Red Fang’s forthcoming third LP, Whales And Leeches; the thing just stomps from the first drum hit, but when it shifts into the brain-frying bridge two-thirds of the way through, it takes flight and soars. Listen.” -STEREOGUM

"Relentlessly ripping." -MetalSucks
