"The heft of Buzzherd’s sound is quite something, skirting the heaviest edges of stoner metal and doom, touching base with some of the blackened moods conjured by Skeletonwitch, but maintaining a sludgy groove sensibility traceable straight to the School of Advanced Iommic Research." The Sleeping Shaman

"Buzzherd's On Sinking Ships... Rats Drown is an aggressive and crusty metal record, summoned from a sweaty, mid-winter basement show. Passages of sludge and doom mix with chugging metal riffs and a punk-rock ethos throughout the 31-minute, 6-song album. Their sound is salty and dirty, and their songs hit hard." The Sludgelord

"‘On Sinking Ships …’ is not an album for those afflicted with motion sickness. Never relying on atmosphere alone, there’s always something going on in this record, each track is a constant builder and all five of them are excellent. But through all the busy-ness and twisting tempos, the riffs remain deliberate and the structures remain methodical. Pure aggression is the guiding light here and tension is built and held up to the breaking point at every turn." The Paranoid Hitsophrenic

"Combining thrash metal, with sludge, doom, punk and stoner to create something highly crusty and grimy. It definitely is one of the filthiest records to cross our path in the beginning of this foul year of our lord 2014. They indeed have some damn fine ability to punch you in the stomach with a club hammer full of paranoia, fear and loathing" Stoner Hive
