"Dissolve were a band that was so far ahead of their time. No one was doing down tuned, sludgy riffs over driving grooves like these dudes were. There are riffs on their demo from decades ago that are still heavier than anything I heave heard to date. They never cared about what was hip or trendy. They just wanted to make music that would pummel you into dust. So glad this rock and roll juggernaut is still rolling and crushing everything in their path."
Brian Fair - Lead Singer, Shadows Fall/Overcast
"Dissolve is a band that defies classification and genre. I have always loved the riffs and perfect chaos of the drums paired with the precision of the low end bass. As a vocalist I've always been a fan of Paul's vicious and poetic approach to his voice and lyrics. Easily one of the most eccentric and unpredictable front men to come out of the north eastern hardcore and metal scene. They are masters of their craft and a band that for too long hasn't been given their due. Underrated and a sheer force to be reckoned with. Dissolve will tear your face off and then fold it into an abstract sculpture and hand it back to you with a eerie grin from ear to ear."
Jesse Leach - Lead Singer, Killswitch Engage
"When I first saw Dissolve on stage, they were juxtaposing an intellectual and maniacal attitude that screamed true cerebral and outraged rebellion. The music was executed amazingly too with raw emotion and technical prowess. I was an immediate fan and to this day still get pumped by how they create the drive in their rhythmic perspective. Heavy metal has to drive rhythmically. Dissolve does it with a unique flair that has a perfect blend of quirky and crushing."
Ken Schalk - Drums, Candiria
"You can't come from Poughkeepsie, NY and not know the musical force that is Dissolve. They have been a solid presence in the hardcore scene since the early 90s and they will always be a blitz to the senses when they bring the heavy."
Matt Byrne - Drums, Hatebreed
