Anton Hunter I came to these guys through their pedal company, SoundBrut. I am currently awaiting a delivery of their distortion pedal, and if the sounds on this record are anything to go by, I'm going to enjoy it a lot! Favorite track: Karecikler Dolmadan.

shaun rogan Scientist rock from Turkish collective. Successfully bending genres at will, Hayvanlar are sometimes like a Turkish Causa Sui, sometimes like a doomy metal band but ultimately all Twisted Souvenirs. Great stuff! Favorite track: Hadron Collider Twist.

"Extraordinarily nimble and muscular, the players contribute frenzied performances that urge the listener to move - exceedingly rare in modern rock. Hayvanlar Alemi attack their compositions with the bloodthirsty zeal of peak Kyuss, but Twisted Souvenirs is a great deal more inspired and imaginative than any so called desert rock." - Wire

"Twisted Souvenirs, psikedeli ve sörf rock’ın dirsek temasının zirve noktasından gelen bir kayıt gibi. Her Hayvanlar Alemi albümünde olduğu gibi melodik fikirlerin nasıl yoğurulacağı ve çeşitlendirileceği konusunda epey kafa patlatıp, daha detaylandırılmış bir prodüksiyonla çıktı bu yıl karşımıza. Twisted Souvenirs, can sıkıntısına birebir, hareketsiz bünyelere ilaç gibi bir albüm!" - Bant
