“those feedback like walls of guitars sounds and the dark, loud yet flowing noisy sounds
of Rasalasad; in each of these four pieces they reach out for a lot of depth in what they do, and it is best enjoyed at a louder volume."
Vital Weekly – The Netherlands
“Os quatro temas que compõem “Thisturbia” acabam por ser uma combinação particularmente feliz, na medida em que se encontram imbuídos de uma espécie de aura cinemática que tornam esta edição na banda-sonora perfeita para estes crepúsculos pré-invernais. Para escutar em alto e bom som!”

“You feel that you are dealing with something majestic, almost grandiose. Dense and monolithic, but with significant touches of fragility and delicacy”
