Reviews for måsstaden are already rolling in, so read on for critics' takes on the latest from VILDHJARTA:
"...måsstaden proves that VILDHJARTA not only know exactly what they are doing, but also that they are capable of making focused, engrossing and fantastic music...When this officially drops, you cannot ignore it." - 10/10, Got-Djent.com
"If you're sick of high-pitched and whiny singing and are in the mood for something much more dark and intense that almost manages to outdo MESHUGGAH in absolute madness, then VILDHJARTA is the band for you." - 4.5/5, Heavy Blog Is Heavy.com
"For a debut full length, måsstaden is incredibly solid. These wild-hearted Swedes have created a monstrous album that is an experience akin to diving headfirst into concrete. It isn't quite progressive metal and it isn't quite deathcore; it's nestled in that sublime category where genres are mixed, categories interwoven and the only genre tag you can manage to attribute to VILDHJARTA is 'pure badassery'. Thall." - 4.5/5, The New Review.net
"vildhjarta's måsstaden is an unrelenting, grueling, pervasively evil album that feels like some sort of unholy punishment." - Bloody Disgusting
