“…A quartet gladly cooperating for an exhilarating half an hour. At most any point here, don’t be surprised to find your fist in the air, your foot tapping on the floor, or your mind somehow pulling for the conclusion of some dramatic quest. It’s that good.” – Pitchfork
“…The kind of blast-beaten, atmospheric, gloomy synth-laden black metal that speeds through grey forests on a pack of wolves.” – NPR
