    With such careful attention to detail, The Eldritch Dark isn't just an homage to the sounds of the past, it's also a gateway to another era in metal history that, with any luck, more bands will go into and explore.

    This is a brilliant mix of heaviness and The Wicker Man-esque oddness. [25 May 2013, p.54]

    Short of pumping dry ice through your speakers, The Eldritch Dark captures the throbbing, gloomy energy that has long made Blood Ceremony one of the city’s finest live acts.

    Adroitly oscillating between creepy and seductive, the album makes for a ravishing piece of occult-rock revival that draws from its retro influences with great artistry and aplomb.

    The third album from this Canadian collective is their strongest yet, and clear proof that while yes, everything old is new again, there are a scant few armed with the passion and power to craft something worth revisiting.

    The Eldritch Dark is the perfect campfire/coven/smoky basement album to luxuriate in, its devilishly delightful and iniquitous melodies set to entrance.

    More high-quality psychedelic-doom musings. [Sep 2013, p.93]
