All music and lyrics written by Leo Bergmann.
"NOCTURNAL ESCAPE have created a very Death Metal-themed album here that is quite doom-y and gloom-y and talks a lot about, well, death. There is quiet a bit of groveling and growling in the vocals as well as moments that shows the brilliant melody of NOCTURNAL ESCAPE's vocalist. The song-writing is quite unbelievable as well, and gives the listener a lot to thing about through some pretty substantial lyrics that really have a lot of depth to it. There is also a large dose of reality that people can relate to as humanity slowly goes crazy even today in our world. NOCTURNAL ESCAPE wrote something that a lot of people can relate to, and understand." 10/10
"This is a great opportunity for fans of progressive and aggressive music to witness the inception and rise of a talented metal act from Germany who are not afraid of experimenting and adding different layers of complexity to their compositions, creating a unique sounding that, as aforementioned, will beautifully reach to your heart and definitely make you bang your metal head."
"...this work shows eight themes entrenched in a sort of death / black progressive, modern metal, with good space for technique and virtuosity, as well as the bands aggressiveness and emphasis on some melodic and nearly gothic aspects."
"... The whole album revolves around these weird combinations of styles and smashing diversity, always neat and sometimes bizarre, however to appreciate, because thanks to them the work is interesting and varied, played with a guitar technique that explodes in kaleidoscopic solos...Very good debut. Is this the birth of a new star in the metal cosmos? 80/100"
