"East of The Wall opens the split in a ferocious style with three songs all under the main title of “Scumbrella.” “(Mud Button)“ is a short, sharp introduction to the New Jersey quartet as it whips up a whirlwind of riffs that could have slotted on Mastodon's Blood Mountain album."
"Year of No Light offers up its now trademark blend of slow, sludgy guitar and the accompanying uplifting atmospherics with two tracks that provide some closure on the Nord era of the band. Year of No Light create such wonderfully constructed and executed pieces of music. With a new line up in place and a new album recorded, the future is looking very bright for the band."
"Year of No Light was described in one review as “The Cure playing sludge,” and it's quite ironic that space metal pioneers Rosetta is the band covering The Cure on this occasion. “Homesick” is reworked magnificently by the band, who is also successful in making the track its own. While it is a bit more laid back than a typical Rosetta song, it has a wonderful atmospheric feel to it as the band unleashes a wall of sound around the vocals."
