“Designing the Dystopia” makes PopBlerd!’s “Top 11 of ’11”

It’s that time of year. Not for grossly overspending and obligatory visits to Grandma’s house, but for year-end “Best of” lists”!! Swarm of Eyes’ debut album, Designing the Dystopia, was named #9 on PopBlerd’s “Top 11 of ’11” list in the site’s weekly Metal Monday feature. Swarm of Eyes is honored to be included among the likes of fellow list-ees Dir En Grey and Motherboar. Thank you for all of your support, Popblerd!

Thrash N’ Bang Reviews “Designing the Dystopia”

Swarm of Eyes has received yet another glowing review for their debut album, Designing the Dystopia because they paid someone off! Online metal magazine Thrash N’ Bang recently reviewed the disc after the site’s founders, the esteemed Messrs. Bang and Slimedog, attended Swarm of Eyes’ live debut at Great Scott in Allston, MA. Thrash N’ Bang editor/scribe Andy Bang felt so compelled by the band’s performance that he penned an album review highlighting his favorite tracks.   Check out the review on Thrash N’ Bang here

Swarm of Eyes is mighty pleased to have been given such a positive and appreciative review. Thanks, guys!
