90 / 100
➤ "... the musicianship is endearingly raw, with almost whispered cleans that tend toward melodic overlays, gritty guitar work and occasional horror-score keyboards … in the emphasis on straightforward catchiness, one can even detect a hint of post-Ghost appeal style … the songwriting have a niche Metal charm that is hard to resist …"

4 / 5
➤ "This one caught me by surprise … very raw and unadulterated ore of classic Heavy Metal … definitely has some DNA from protean stuff like Mercyful fate or even Venom … theatrical vibe, like something from Stormwitch or Cloven Hoof … rough, strained voice—like if Quorthon was a bit better … this is a band to check out …"

8 / 10
➤ "… a real talent who deserves your attention … peculiar and yet utterly compelling in its macabre wonder … pure, lethal and at times foreboding Heavy Metal summed up by the majestic ‘Swamp Sacrifice’, which boasts the fluidity and spectral nature of Ghost … a dimension of shadows and spectre worth visiting …"
7,5 / 10
➤ "… simple but effective riffs and catchy solos … especially atmospheric, discreet keyboards in the background, which provide a gloomy atmosphere … epic choirs and acoustic guitars … theatrical vocals, which are often performed in multiple voices, mostly in a medium pitch and often a bit rough … cool doom riffs and some New Wave Of British Heavy Metal-like twinleads ... production sounds nice old analog, very appropriate to the gloomy mood ... oddball old school Metal album ... like it well!
➤ "… this new album just takes things to the next level - both in terms of music and lyrics … so we are dealing with a very talented one-man band - and one of the kind I would definitely recommend …"
➤ "The songs exude a charm that surrounds the dark aura ... can satisfy many hearts ... a very own, rich, powerful Heavy Metal sound ... a really interesting Heavy Metal band for those who like traditional sounds ... spicy to wholly savory to fullest deliciousness ..."
➤ "This is a creator that knows his way around early 80's traditional Heavy Metal for sure … the somewhat closed in mix that has been applied also gives the material the proper sound aesthetics of the time, comparable to the kind of albums released by cult labels such as Mausoleum Records and Black Dragon Records back in the day … to seek out by those who love and treasure early 80's traditional Heavy Metal and who enjoy this specific style as well as the sound aesthetics you generally found among the underground metal bands some 40 years ago."

➤ "... excellent grasp of traditional-Metal form and function ... has the potential to be a Norwegian classic ... an album that scrapes close to the edge of excellence and should definitely make a name for itself among Norwegian fans of 80s narrative Metal ..."
➤ "... an impressive work ... the dark mysticism and 80s vibes make it a must for fans of Occult Rock and traditional Heavy Metal ..."
