“Black Anvil's an amazing live band…and their songwriting's as strong as their stage presence.” - Pitchfork


“an unholy creature of shadow.” - BrooklynVegan


“A bad-ass blistering debut full length!” – Decibel Magazine

“The New York trio plays a brawny style of traditional black metal that owes as much to Motorhead and 80s punk/hardcore as it does Darkthrone.” – Outburn


“Black Anvil recall the dank and dingy old school black metal din of Darkthrone, also summoning up Enslaved-esque sweeping mournful soundscapes, though its never too long before they’re jumping back onto a classic-style hellish riff-ride.”- Kerrang


“simultaneously brutal, melodic, belligerent, grotesque, and bone-chilling in one blackened, blood-soaked package.” – Examiner.com
