Earth Burnt Black / Press

"Don't play this with your speakers pointed at glass objects."

“The members of Earth Burnt Black shoulder their way out of Greeley on this hellish freight train of an album, destroying all in their path with the bone-crushing strength of Harrowing Catharsis.”

"This is a monumental, surprise release of 2012. Love it.....9/10."

"The band pretty much throws everything in the frying pan and delivers a very well tasty dish of well crafted and different sounding music with a nice and clear production on top of it. These types of albums are the ones we wait for at Infernal Masquerade since the combine so many different things and still manage to sound very well and powerful."

"... cracks open your chest plate with an iron fist of sludgecore lunacy in epic proportions. The mountainous rumble transcends into scorched rhythms, dynamic song structures and haunting bass lines as the tormented death growl and calming clean vocal seamlessly play off each other as if in a battle between good and evil. ...atmospheric, devastating, and thought-provoking 54-minute concept album."

"Earth Burnt Black's Harrowing Catharsis is like a surprise knockout blow straight to the face. The concept debut album of this American quartet is a propulsive, appealing and often alluring ultra-heavy rock record. "

“Earth Burnt Black is a destructive beast of a quartet from Colorado. Three of the four members are listed as vocals…and let me tell you something…the vocal range and use of them against so many different tidal waves of music makes this a metal lover’s dream album...Earth Burnt Black is doomy death metal with that progressive edge.”

“For lovers of metal that is thrash, doom, and progressive…”Harrowing Catharsis” by Earth Burnt Black is one helluva an album. I dig bands like Made Out of Babies…Mr. Bungle…killwhitneydead…and Celtic Frost. So I loved this album. My Christmas is going to be a little bit darker this year…which is the way I like it!”

"Check this one out for sure!"

“What does their music sound like? Much of the metal you'll hear on Liquid Metal or Headbanger's Ball, with roots in harder metal like Slayer...The sound does carry a bit more groove than most metal bands”

Dan England - Greeley Tribune

"Harrowing Catharsis doesn't get heavier in a linear fashion, but rather heightens and releases...This fifty-four minute piece is grandiose in scope...there is nothing to be called derivative here. Just as you ease into the rhythm of each dirge the band wakes you up with an unexpected but not unwelcome disruption."

"Heavy. Mix Black Sabbath and Down, with some Alice in Chains in there, too"

"Their sound has been claimed by a range of genres, but quite simply they are metal."

Luan Roberts - Bandwagon Magazine
