"Their album is challenging and will leave most casual fans of harder music in a stupor and undoubtedly will rouse Top Ten discussions among those with a more refined taste for American style black metal that dares to draw from experimental spheres." -
"Velnias use mature songwriting techniques (border-lining on progressive), making use of many moodyt acoustic paggages and slow sorrowful riffs that gradually build and shift throughout each track.  Although it is possible the band may appeal to those who follow bands such as Enslaved or Opeth, the formation of songs actually have more in common with the tequniques used by bands such as Isis or Pelican" -
"The trio emphasizes dark and brooding, repetitive riffs that spiral and branch out into thicker and thicker strands of barbed, gnarled roots.  The result is a fucking apocalypse tree where sacrificial lambs get their throats slit to the groove of melancholic metal." - Decibel
