    The incense smoke and blacklight posters might be a little too heavy-handed for some listeners, but the more experienced stoner rock connoisseurs will recognize that Golden Void is singing it like they're living it.

    On their debut, they don't seek to out-pummel other contemporary hashers with speed or heaviness; rather it's on the golden fields of mood and groove where they excel.

    The result is some straight-up, blues-centered psychedelic rock. [Oct/Nov 2012, p.133]

    The problem with Golden Void is that it sounds so much like the Black Sabbath, with its intricate, chopped up time signatures, its big-footed riffs, its surprising facility with tunefulness even during mayhem.

    Unashamedly retro, yes, but delivered with out irony--and at ear-ringing volume. [Dec 2012, p.105]
