“When a new Inquisition album appears, it’s not even a question of whether it’ll be any good. It’s a matter of how good.” – Decibel Magazine

They’ve been there since the beginning, and will be here making outstanding records long after the rest of their peers have given up the ghost.” – Pitchfork

“…inventive and incredible, a stellar assembly of riff-first black metal guaranteed to go down as one of the year’s finest albums, metal or otherwise.” -Stereogum
