CRITIC REVIEWS

Distorted Sound

With one of the band’s intentions to inspire similar creativity, Diaspora Problems could well mark the dawn of a new era with SOUL GLO right at the forefront.

Exclaim!

Exploring so many sub-genres of hardcore while simultaneously telling many different stories, Diaspora Problems vaults Soul Glo into the conversation as one of the most important heavy bands in 2022.

Crack Magazine
Soul Glo may be experiencing diaspora problems, but in these blistering tracks, they’ve at least started to brew an antidote.

On Diaspora Problems, Soul Glo have caused a clearing in the forest with an album so boundless in its creativity that it cannot be ignored. This is the shape of hardcore that we had been promised.

Beats Per Minute

The fact that Diaspora Problems is an essential and enlivening record from start to finish will only amplify the fact of Soul Glo’s importance in the modern music landscape.

Pitchfork
On their groundbreaking new album, the Philadelphia hardcore group mixes actionable rhetoric, absurdist humor, and breathtaking vulnerability like no band before them.

Every single second of every single minute of every single single on this stonker of an LP bleeds an impossible, intoxicating energy, the group converting the violent reverberations of hXc, skramz and hip-hop into a giddy blur of flailing limbs and unfading grins that may well be my album of the year.

Metal Hammer

Soul Glo's Diaspora Problems mixes hardcore punk, metal and rap in the best crossover record since Turnstile's Time & Space.

AllMusic

If you want your ears kicked, Soul Glo can do that like few others, but Diaspora Problems confirms that's hardly the beginning and end of their talents.

Kerrang!
Soul Glo may not quite invoke the anything-could-happen chills you get from a Code Orange album, but this fiercely marshalled whiplash of a debut tells you they might do all this and more.

This album absolutely bangs. Once the vocals kicked in on my first listen of this project, I felt like I was being trampled in a moshpit. I love the chaotic energy that Soul Glo brings, and the beats sound great and energetic. This album leaves me very exciting for Soul Glo’s next project.

Look, I can see why people love this, it's really creative and the vibe is really on point. Sonically I love this, I just think the songwriting could be far better here.
