“ACID DEATH "Eidolon" 2012 .....If you’re a fan of either Progressive or Death metal, you’ll find something to enjoy here. I’m giving “Eidolon” 8/10; I like this album quite a bit, but I wouldn’t really put it on par with any of the other Death metal albums I’ve reviewed that got ten out of ten. While being very technical, it feels like the music has trouble flowing at times. That, combined with the similarity of all the tracks, was enough to knock down my rating a bit. This album is still worth acquiring though! Should you notice it on the shelf at your local music shop, pick it up by all means! [8/10]”
"ACID DEATH "Eidolon" CD, June 2012........You never know what to expect with Acid Death. They exploit all corners of their universe of talents and push the envelope fearlessly all across this record, and honestly, they succeed in the art of taking one’s breath away, leaving ‘em demanding for more. I sure as all heck NEED more; the fact that these guys are back around means that chaos will be stirred in ways everybody better gear up and fucking prepare for. ”Eidolon” is one of those records you can’t pass up on, if you think you’ve seen and heard it all. Until you’ve checked this record out, mark my words, you’re mistaken, and you’ll stand corrected as you walk out of this listening session feeling quite fuzzy about exactly what kind of cataclysmic storm just took over your brain.
“ACID DEATH "Eidolon" CD, June 2012 ...Klar, mit den großen internationalen Bands dieses Genres können sich die Griechen (noch) nicht messen, aber "Eidolon" ist definitiv ein Album für den kleinen Hunger zwischendurch. Die Songs wirken gut durchdacht und sind ideal, wenn man von SUFOCATION runterkommen will, um sich auf NILE vorzubereiten. Guter Durchschnitt, aber keine Sensation. Gesamtwertung: 7.5 Punkte”
“ACID DEATH "Eidolon" CD, June 2012 .....Overall, fans should be happy alone that this band has returned to the fold, and new fans who like their Thrash mixed with Death Metal in a way where the Thrash sections actually dominate the Death Metal this time will find Acid Death's sound appeasing. It's not mind blowing, but it doesn't put past or present to shame with the legacy that the group has had to live up to, no matter how short. 4/5”
“ACID DEATH "Eidolon" CD, June 2012 .....Fazit: Fans von Death oder Sodom kann man nur eine deutliche Kaufempfehlung geben ! Und auch allen anderen kann ich nur ans Herz legen die sich die Scheibe selbst mal anzuhören. 10/10 ”
“ACID DEATH "Eidolon" CD, June 2012 .....Either way, this album is a great comeback nonetheless. This will appeal to fans of DEATH, ICED EARTH, SEPULTURA and NEVERMORE. For new listeners “Eidolon” the album will take a few listens to get used to ACID DEATH as they are unique in their own way but beware this album can turn you into an addict within the first couple of times you hear it. 8.5/10”
