    It is both slick and accomplished. [Oct 2011, p.120]
  2. Oct 5, 2011
    This is as good a debut album from a British metal band as you're likely to hear in 2011.
  3. Kerrang!

    Their career trajectory continues its upward arc--but with City of Vultures, Rise To Remains have stamped on the accelerator. [3 Sep 2011, p.50]
  4. Rock Sound
    Oct 5, 2011
    While it's not a groundbreaking redefinition of what metal should be, it's a firm statement of intent from the London-based quintet.
  5. Jan 25, 2012
    City of Vultures is a solid first offering suggesting that Dickinson Jr. is capable of stepping out of his father's shadows in the future.
  6. 60
    The urgent-sounding "This Day Is Mine" is the pick of their largely impressive full-length debut, the melodic choruses offset by barked vocals and shred guitar. The more restrained "Roads" merely sounds earnestly plodding.
  7. Alternative Press
    Jan 4, 2012
    While they are accomplished musicians and combine their growling, death-metal-influenced moments with a wealth of shiny hooks, they fail to do so in a way that counts. [Feb 2012, p.84]
  8. Uncut
    Oct 18, 2011
    Although RTR are more than copyists, they cleave to a proven hybrid of speed metal, grungecore and emo. [Oct 2011, p.86]
