The album sold 29,000 copies in its first week. The album peaked at number 10 on the US Billboard 200 and peaked at number 7 on the Canadian Albums Chart.

The album has received mainly positive reviews. Allmusic gave the album 3 out of 5 stars, stating that it "feels like a throwback to the NWOBHM at times evoking hints of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest." They also stated that the album had a good mix of "heaviness and harmony".[5]

TheNewReview.net gave the album 4.5 out of 5 saying, "The vocals and guitars are layered exactly as they should be to either draw attention to Labonte or Herbert and Martin depending on the situation while keeping the drums and bass right where they need to be to compliment the guitarists and Labonte’s excellent (for the most part) vocal work."[13]
