Critical Reception[edit]

AllMusic gave a positive review towards the album, complimenting both its short punchier songs and its lengthier ballads, calling it "Bludgeoning and beautiful all at once".[1] Pitchfork gave a mostly positive review, particularly appreciating its shorter songs and added themes "with influences ranging from post-rock to black-metal", however felt that the 2 ending, longer, songs were overly repetitive with the same motifs repeated.[2]
