Critical reception[edit]

Critical reception was generally mixed with a lean towards the positive. AllMusic noted it was more reminiscent of Metallica than the genre-defining Black Sabbath, and "falls short of exceptional, but it's a satisfying effort that has more plusses than minuses."[1]

CMJ Music Review was generally positive, indicating it was a strong visceral experience and a promising debut album, although it lacked musical depth.[3]
