"Rather than sticking to the script and releasing an album in the same vein as Viking Funeral, Hull took a gamble and hit pay dirt with Sole Lord. In turn, connoisseurs of all things heavy should take a gamble on Sole Lord. You won't be disappointed."
"The distant smattering of chords that opens "Innocence" gives way to something that sounds like music that dinosaurs would face extinction to, a stomping, plodding din that one could expect to hear during the destruction of a planet."
