"Bleak Revelation take elements from the UK Doom Death, the '70's Psychedelic Doom, the current wave of Doom Metal, and of course a bit of Death Metal and even a hint of Gothic Rock, so I'm sure this album will appeal to a wide range of fans of this genre."
Pest Webzine (Romania), 8.5/10
"The album is exceptionally colorful, and this is shown for example in tracks like "Enslaved" and "Defied By Clouds": the first throws the eye towards the black symphonies of the earliest times, the second offers short outbursts of pure death metal. "Clarity" and "As If" are rather different because of their caustic wickedness due to the harsh vocals - their ruthlessness is hardly ignorable, while the short "Perished" can give us a few moments of headbanging."
Aristocrazia Webzine (Italy)
"What's cool about Bleak Revelation is that their intellectualized and highly polished sound represents a sort of coming of age of the Eastern European scene. They have an iconoclastic sound and they have been able to refine their sorrowful noise into something that will crush your soul."
Two Guys Metal Reviews (USA)
"There is a whole bunch of simple, catchy riffs and a lot of melodic solos, which further diversify the material. You can clearly hear that boys are also no stranger to Gothic or Dark metal. Just relax - there are no sad wistful melodies for lonely teenage girls - only true metal music."
MetalRulez Webzine (Poland), 7/10
"We can easily smell the music direction: a material that will certainly be appreciated by fans of Saturnus, October Tide or Novembers Doom."
Let's Rock Webzine (Romania), 8/10
"...and if you also see a hand in the darkness, pointing accusingly at you - this means it's time to blow the last candle."
MetalHall Webzine, 8.8/10
"The song 'Perished' clearly shows the New Wave and Disco potential of those musicians - a thing that I really like."
The Other Side Webzine, 9/10
"The track 'Perished' is a total riff salad including some nice vocal duels and 'Clarity' simply pulls your teeth without anaesthesia thanks to its original harmonized riff and Anton Andonov's insane screams."
Pro-Rock Magazine (Bulgaria), 7/10
"Bleak Revelation describe their genre as „Extreme metal with doom influences“, but the amount of extremity is actually very well-measured. The doom vibe is not too suffocating for the listener either. The clean vocals create an epic, viking-like atmosphere and the brilliant guitar leads of Alexander paint pictures and tell stories, leaving an impression of gentleness and beauty."
