ANAGNORISIS’ triumphant Peripeteia was called by Noisey, “black metal at its most grand, coldly melodic and unapologetically over-the-top without stumbling into wimpy, overly symphonic territory… on Peripeteia, one gets the distinct impression that they’re finally satisfied—not enough to stop, or to slow down, but to push even harder.” Decibel Magazine reported, “ANAGNORISIS certainly doesn’t pull any sonic or emotional punches on its majestic, seriously affecting gut-punch sophomore full-length Peripeteia — a powerful blend of forward-thinking, nuanced black metal and excerpts from circa ’82-87 family recordings he found on two cassette tapes after his father’s death.”
Invisible Oranges offered, “Snippets of audio recordings from Kerr’s childhood pepper these songs and hint at an unhappy domestic life. Combined with the band’s sometimes rough and tumble riffs, not to mention prolonged song lengths, these tape snippets evoke Shining’s masterful V: Hamlstad album… but the knowledge that these samples don’t come from a film give the story the weight of reality.” Meat Mead Metal suggested, “This is a record that should retain its relevance well into the future, because these are themes that make up all of us in one way or another, and it could become a companion for us when we experience our own awakenings,” and a 5/5 review from MoshPitNation proclaimed, “Beyond All Light is the band’s masterpiece after learning the rules of black metal as an art form. It is darkly beautiful, full of vile, pent-up aggression and ceaseless rage. Peripeteia is where ANAGNORISIS begin to break the rules like an artist. I would still classify the album as black metal, though leaning further towards the atmospheric spectrum.”
