    The Great Fire should reestablish Bleeding Through as trailblazing scene leaders as they hit veteran status. [Mar 2012, p.98]

    It's one hell of a ride.

    They do add a distinct Norwegian metal patina to the whole affair, resulting in a listening experience that can feel a little like cueing up tracks from At the Gates, Black Flag, and Dimmu Borgir, and then pressing play on all three, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

    The Hammer Horror synths still jar at times and there are few surprises for long-time fans, but aside from that this is, like its self-titled predecessor, an impressive effort.

    It's not bad but Bleeding Through have proved they're capable of a lot, lot more. [11 Feb 2012, p.51]

    While this will probably please Bleeding Through's fans, sticking with the path most traveled doesn't result in a particularly memorable record.
