    Music doesn't get more devastating than this. [Dec 2012, p.90]

    The result: a crushing musical experience easily among the year's best extreme-metal records.

    Grueling and utterly uncompromising, Widowmaker is a gift to humanity from a band that despises it. [17 Nov 2012, p.53]

    It's not often to encounter music this conceptually sophisticated and well executed that also, in its most secret depths, simply hates you.

    It's not that these 40 minutes are too extreme or overly dependent on too many ideas; it's that Dragged into Sunlight haven't found out how to synthesize their best impulses and broad ambitions into a whole.

    This creative group of misanthropes have emerged a devastating proposition.

    Widowmaker is a three-part epic that needs to be listened to in one sitting. The opener, "Part 1", is entirely dedicated to building tension and establishing the theme of the album and is by no means boring. "Part 2" and "Part 3" are two of the heaviest, most cathartic songs I have heard, and achieve (in conjunction with their predecessor) a magnificently hateful and dark atmosphere that the listener paradoxically revels in. Fantastic album by an awesome band, absolutely deserves a listen Full Review »
