SELECTED PRESS QUOTES:
 
“There are very few perfect pieces of music in recent memory. The ability to create another 
Reign in Blood, Wildhoney or Through Silver in Blood just doesn’t happen these days.
Well, Down Below is fucking flawless. Hail Tribulation! Hail death!“
10/10 Decibel Magazine (US)
 
"Standing ovations! The underworld finally has its own soundtrack.“
6/7 Metal Hammer (DE)
 
"You won't even realise you've been possessed 'til it's too late."
KKKK Kerrang! (UK)
 
"This is a dark album, full of sinister melodies
as Tribulation endeavour to take you into their sonic nightmare.“
8/10 Powerplay (UK)
 
“Everyone who embraced "The Children Of The Night“,
will surely worship "Down Below“ as well. Bet on it!“
10/10 powermetal.de (DE)
 
"What to say? We are sure that as long as they are able to create such a deadly fascinating canvas, Tribulation will continue to enchant."
Metalitalia.com (IT)
 
"In the hypothetical artistic convergence between expressive power
and aesthetic tension you will find Tribulation"
Rock Hard (IT)
 
"Unique band, sublime listening pleasure.“
Sonic Seducer (DE)
 
"The metal album to beat in 2018.“
Metalsucks (US)
 
"Nothing short of a bold masterpiece in an already incredible discography“
Metalinjection (US)
 
"Even at its darkest, nastiest moments, Down Below is a strikingly gorgeous album“
Stereogum (US)
 
"'Down Below' is a more contemplative album than its predecessor. But if the dawn succeeds to the night, Tribulation confirms that it is indeed a band out of the ordinary and on which one must clearly count on!!”
Rock Hard (FR)
 
"Tribulation is now ready for stages as big as their massive songs.“
Pitchfork (US)
 
"The band makes a seamless whole out of a mix of horror film soundtracks, modern extreme metal, gothic punk from the 80s, and progressive rock from the 70s.“
