Press on “Day Of Mourning”:
“…a definite musical progression in terms of the variance of tones that twist from acoustic waves to spin-kick inducing frenzies, and a technical accomplishment that deserves nothing less than adoration…. one of the most exciting bands of the past decade!”

“DESPISED ICON first punch the listener in the gut and then they saw his head off…essential modern extreme metal.”
LEGACY (D), 14/15
