“You can find a lot of influences that goes from The Stooges to Bauhaus, from Joy Division to New Order, from E.A Poe to August Derleth, from the most experimental David Bowie to Editors, from Turbonegro to Doctor Midnight & The Mercy Cult, and that’s not all because they have also this evolving cinematic vibe all around in some of their mind-tempo songs, a very good exercise of algorithms and complexity into its atmosphere. Intense, i couldn’t stop to listen to it from the beginning to end, no single pause in between. The sequence between songs is just perfect, the intensity factor never fades away.” / Oskar Terramortis wrote on his Nyctophilian review.
