    This album changed my mind about metal being dead. This album is so solid from beginning to end it is a diamond in the rough that many never find. The singers voice is amazing, but he could easily be written a ticket by the music police for sounding exactly like Ozzy... which if you think about it isn't a bad thing in any way (ref. "Veil of Isis"). Additionally I saw them in concert and all the songs from their new album play really well live. Collapse

    Master producer J. Robbins deserves some credit for the band's audibly broadened horizons. [No. 94, p.60]

    Apocryphon stomps with familiar, even comforting, satisfaction.

    The fact that the real Black Sabbath are currently in the studio makes this fell more like a curtain-raiser than the real event. [10 Nov 2012, p.55]
