"Beats are dropped like medicine balls to the tune of slowly expanding ripples of blackened fuzz while Cookson and Rozeik's screams now have a bug-eyed intensity that verges on psychosis. They've stolen the spot that Red Harvest left behind as evil sounding bastards du jour, creating vast, desolate soundscapes that transcend the notions of metal and industrial, leaving only misanthropy and the acrid taste of corroding machinery in their wake."
ROCK A ROLLA
"They’ve finally rocketed beyond the clutches of the stratosphere with this record, loosening the bowels of any unfortunate, inevitably tentacled extra-terrestrial that comes within range of their subsonic, meditative rumbling...Highly recommended."
METAL HAMMER - 8/10
"[A]ll grainy textures and ominous, half-glimpsed menace. An overwhelming, paranoia-inducing accomplishment."
"A marriage of doom, dub, and blackened atmospherics that sounds colossal, like Neurosis commingling with DJ Shadow, as AJ Cookson and Matthew Rozeik show they're smart enough to know that the most devastating pieces of extreme music always benefit from well-timed moments of restraint, highlighted by 'Shadows Of Reflections Of Ghosts Past'"
