MilitiA. in "Afropunk Festival 2012 Highlights"
"TEN FIERCEST BLACK FEMALE ROCKERS"
"TOP 5 BLACK WOMEN ROCKERS TO WATCH"
"MilitiA is simply mesmerizing."
"A HEAVY METAL GODDESS", "A real voice for rock 'n' roll", "Her roller coaster ride to stardom, a string of feats that only some could dream of accomplishing."
"SHE'S GOT BIG BALLS: Mademoiselle MilitiA, croisement improbable – et pourtant vrai – entre Rob Halford et Tina Turner." (Translation: "Miss MilitiA is the unlikely yet true cross between Rob Halford and Tina Turner.")
"MilitiA has that same star quality that projected off Freddy Mercury when he graced the stage. It’s that certain it factor that separates a regular singer from an ICON."
"A rarity in heavy metal... a very strong, talented and beautiful heavy metal woman, who makes me proud to be a fan of this great music."
"Militia, sings her ass off on songs like “Covet” and “Hate Out Loud,” the title track from Swear On Your Life’s CD, Burn My Crosses, and my favorite track, “Self Taught.”"
"Oh, man. Militia is one of the most talented New York musicians I know...There’s just different people in the New York scene that I’ve always admired... And Militia has that voice."
"The face and killer voice... She's been seen on MTV, FUSE, VH1 and probably in your dreams, ROCK GODDESS, MILITIA."
"NY's sexy vocal metal queen."
"I could be wrong, but there is probably at least one performance-studies Ph.D. thesis to be written on the implications of a biracial Catholic school girl...who reverse-engineers the power relationship of a male gaze by performing anthems written for pimply boys that were originally sung by a closeted gay man who wore motorcycle leathers onstage."
"MilitiA is Coming… (You can run, but you can't hide)...the vocals of MilitiA–forceful and dominant, she will win you over."
" A sexy, not too shy rock lady... She reminded some of us of a young Betty Davis but moved like Corey Glover (Living Colour.)" "She had that hard rock/funk sound of Betty." "The new Betty Davis, MilitiA."
"Behold! MilitiA! \mm/ <--- too metal for one hand."
"MILITIA'S MANY HATS: Walking to the yearly Indian Larry Grease Monkey block party... I heard the band’s lead vocalist MilitiA, three blocks away, above the Williamsburg din of cars and horns and trains I hear over here all the time. There’s nothing like the power of a good female vocalist!"
"It’s not often you get to see an African-American woman front a full-on metal band, but not only does MilitiA do that, she rocks the joint!"
