"Sliding ever so slightly out of the Terrorizer boundaries with this EP by totally eschewing the metal/doom bits, Necro Deathmort nevertheless reel us back in with the customary face-ripping intensity they apply to everything they've done so far. If nothing else, it's the perfect record to play to all your lame friends who think they like any sort of wimpy electronic music and show them what the silly music they enjoy should really fucking sound like"
"Necro Deathmort have always been a bit smarter with their influences than most... If there was any justice in the world. Necro Deathmort would get picked up to do a film or game soundtrack or something, and soon. There are few bands better at evoking a mood, or setting a scene in your head. Especially if the scene is Michael Biehn jetpacking across an alien landscape with a plasma rifle in pursuit of robot-vampires."
"With a wider sonic palette to work from, a broader range of influences than ever and the confidence and imagination to create music that wholly swallows its audience, Necro Deathmort surely cannot remain in the underground for long. This is intelligent, dark and furiously inventive music that, by turns, enraptures and terrifies the listener. Always fascinating and never repetitive, Necro Deathmort have never been more essential than they here, on EP1."

I can’t really do this album, or Wrest’s talent and influence, due justice. I can say that this album is a late discovery for me, and some of my favorite current metal projects are logical extensions of what Wrest has already done. This album is high art; the most painfully beautiful thing you’re likely to hear. Brian3737
