"The Berlin-based Canadian alto saxophonist, Peter van Huffel may be one of the most intense performers on this instrument. He creates sharp images with his playing, is exceedingly energetic ... [and] has an inventive sense of rhythm. In this respect he is like Eric Dolphy, who played with a pulse that originated from the inventions of Charlie Parker, but carried the ideas of that genius into a wholly different sphere of consciousness."

(Raul d'Gama Rose - All About Jazz, March 2010)

"Huffel and his crew, dubbed "Gorilla Mask," bring both the Brötzmann and the Black Flag in a tidy, compact package... Huffel’s more direct, confrontational method results in a thrash-jazz record that’s more purposeful, unpredictable and just plain fun. Huffel and Gorilla Mask have created the perfect gateway drug into acoustic jazz for Henry Rollins fans."

(S. Victor Aaron - Something Else!, Nov. 2012)


"Van Huffel's improvisational vision rides across the rippling vehemence with a combination of fervour and matter-or-factness, with the add-on of near-pastoral explorations of melody..."

(Massimo Ricci - Touching Extremes, Nov. 2012)
