Reception[edit]

Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars stating "Cold's songwriting isn't always great and they're too concerned with adolescent angst and horror ("Everyone Dies," "Insane," "Serial Killer," etc.), but the band's sound is fully formed, resulting in a strong debut."[3]

Although the album didn't have excellent sales and lacked heavy promotion, it was ranked the 9th best album of 1998 by Kerrang![4]
