CRITIC REVIEWS

The Skinny

A creative triumph for any artist, Deleter is well-rounded and a welcome return for the Toronto outfit.

musicOMH

The band have assembled a great selection of tunes that showcase a wide variety of styles, and Deleter is highly recommended for those on the intersection between electronica and rock.

80
AllMusic

Tipping closer to dance-pop than noise-rock, Deleter is one of Holy Fuck's most finely tuned albums, yet the band sound as spontaneous as ever.

80
DIY

'Deleter' successfully blurs boundaries between time and space while gifting the listener with the unexpected opportunity for a total sonic catharsis.

God Is in the TV

Holy Fuck have come up with a worthy new chapter their ongoing adventure.

The Line of Best Fit

The band’s fun and pretty new full-length, Deleter, continues this growth and expansion.

Exclaim!

Even though it doesn't reach the exhilarating highs of their peak moments, Deleter works as a serviceable showcase of the band's grasp of controlled rhythm and noise.

70
Gigwise

It’s a danceable, euphoric album and one that continually displays the band’s ability to discover their own potential.

70
PopMatters

On Deleter, Holy Fuck have enthusiastically thrown themselves into the kaleidoscopic world of the early 1990s house scene while adding a few footnotes using their particular musical vocabulary.

70
Uncut

Much of Deleter occupies latter-day Primal Scream/David Holmes territory, the kind of pleasantly anonymous groove-driven middle ground that wavers non-committally between inchoate anger and fuzzy euphoria.

60
NME

The most interesting moments on ‘Deleter’ arrive when the band embrace ’90s dance in all its euphoric, Technicolor glory.

55
Spectrum Culture

There’s a lack of playfulness that infused their earlier work, ultimately leaving Deleter to feel a little undercooked.

Crack Magazine

Our sonic landscape has significantly shifted and developed since the band first carved out their sound. Too much of the material on Deleter sounds oblivious to this, and as a result, dated.

Goes for the indietronica 'cathedral of sound' approach - it can end up a bit too much of the one good thing is the main criticism.

This was quite average. Indietronica is a kind of music I definitely have been known to enjoy, but this just a little generic and really falls off quite a bit with the second half. First half is a lot of fun though, and definitely has some seriously danceable indie jams with "Moment" being my personal highlight for its undeniable energy. The album really starts dragging hard after that I found though, and the songs begin becoming less distinct: even after relistening to this earlier ... read more

A distanza di quattro anni dal loro ultimo album tornano gli Holy Fuck, una band sui generis a cui piace giocare secondo le proprie regole, unendo la tensione del rock e dell’elettronica in melodie estatiche su cui lasciare danzare l’inconscio. Il loro quinto e squisito ritorno si chiama Deleter, un disco di nove tracce fatto di mimesi elettronica distorta e punk, realizzata senza l’ausilio di computer ed altre moderne tecnologie, ma solo da strumenti reali come loro ... read more
