The NewReview gave the album a perfect 5 out of 5 and states "Quite simply, this is a record steeped in heart-racing psychedelic, bleak melodies, and wound together by an aching atmosphere and captivating concept, which proves The Marriage of Heaven and Hell to be the group's most impressive outing yet."
Sound In The Signals Magazine also gave the album a positive review stating:
"Overall, I'd say this is a good release from a genre that has been bled dry with copycats and dull ideas. Not the most original album you'll hear this year, but a fine addition to your metal library if you like this kind of thing. It should fit well between Norma Jean's O God, the Aftermath and The Chariot Wars and Rumors of Wars." 
Jesusfreakhideout.com gave the album 4 stars out of 5, praising the band's "more mature and complete sound"; also stating that "the [general] song structure is more chaotic and dissonant, which is exactly where this band should be musically". The review also noted the band's use of clean vocals in some of the tracks as a significant "surprising... new development".
