    Gas Lit is an important record from an important band. It doesn’t attempt to make things palatable for you, and nor should it. The record is a provocation to a difficult conversation, one that in all honesty shouldn’t really still have to take place in 2021.

    Gas Lit’s intent is so immediate, it communicates its significance regardless. Its statement is not just one you can hear or read about. More importantly, it’s one you can feel.

    Dissonant yet heavenly, Gas Lit is an album that seethes, soothes, liberates and bewitches in equal measures. [Mar 2021, p.83]

    Through glowing stasis and solemn ceremony, Divide and Dissolve’s sonics of despair and destruction have been crafted into a remarkably life-affirming experience, and it’s never been more needed.

    This is instrumental music. Don't look for answers here. The questions speak loudly enough in the chain saw amalgam that forms the nub of the grinding gears.

    A powerful, impressively unconventional, predominantly instrumental suite, linking sludge and doom metal with a desolate reading of jazz.

    Creating an atmosphere that's brooding, anguished, and at times ecstatic, Divide and Dissolve communicate their righteous outrage in a way that doesn't require words to be explicit and effective.

    Their conceptual hinterland is sometimes more interesting than their clobbering racket, but both are exhilarating in places. [Mar 2021, p.29]
