"A View from Afar is an exercise in everything from doomy, atmospheric soundscapes to hefty explosions of fury. Heavy but approachable - progressive without being overly showy. One of the stand-out post-metal albums of 2018 thus far."
"Below A Silent Sky are way more aggressive with their music and they create a fine amount of heavy progressive noises that will impress the most jaded of Post-Rock/Post-Metal fans. ...A View From Afar is a thrilling and brilliantly entertaining album and is essential listening if you're a fan of Post-Rock/Post-Metal music."
"They really put me in the Dunk! mood...Actually, all of the tracks on this album do that, that is why this is such a great album to lose oneself in. Of course I will recommend this to all post-whatever fans out there, no doubt about that."

I just got a new pair of earphones, and - wow! - it has radically changed my assessment of this album, to the point where I felt like I needed to write completely new comments. For example, I can now hear backing vocals on Obsolith and overall the harshness of tone that I heard through my old earphones has disappeared. Lesson: make sure your listening gear is up to scratch. Kinda obvious, I guess.
Anyway, I'm happy to discover that this album is actually quite awesome psychedelic space rock. Reuben Sammitch
