...WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RECLUSIAM...
"...a four-track, forty-four minute, crushing and emotive album...drawing obvious influences from the Finnish doom masters...there are times when I prefer this over "Angels Of Distress"." ~ Lucas, Metalstorm 'Zine, December 2008.
"Reclusiam...[has]... your general funeral doom set up. 10+ minute songs, long and drawn out chords, deep, death-like vocals, and that absolute feeling of despair. What happens to be different is how everything is incorporated and put together...All 4 songs are amazingly good, and the perpetual despair...is outstanding." ~ Demente, Encyclopedia Metallum, January 2007.
"...while this is slow it is never dull, and even the ungodly long songs...do not get tedious. This is not rocking music, it is heavy, moody, melancholic, and slower than molasses in a walk-in freezer. But it is also highly atmospheric music that succeeds... [t]here are a lot of keys on this disc to provide the melody while the guitars mostly just crush out the [slow] background riffs. Vocals are sparse and harsh, but fit in very well. This should not work – it should be insufferable and dragging, but quality songwriting and excellent melodies make this compulsively listenable..." ~ Sargon the Terrible, Metal Crypt 'Zine, December 2004.
"Reclusiam is light years beyond almost every other independently released/distributed doom band." ~ www.cellarseer.com
