"What are they going to do on their next album? They are criminals of conscience but their seriousness is something we have to return in favor. Just listening to their songs tests your nature. You don't have to sit up striaght to listen to their music but listen to it with your hands in fists!" Kawabata Makoto (Acid Mothers Temple)
"It's fun being able to watch Gezan break the norm of sound, image and habits." Agata (Melt Banana)
"Their outburst of energy reminds us of a generation of bands like YBO2 aned Boredoms. It's something that makes butterflies in my stomach. It really is a new generation and I'm excited for their future sounds." Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins)
"Gezan, they're finally here! Watch out, they'll suck you to your bones." Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins)
