“BATTLEFIELDS segue between gnashing metal and layers of lo-fi atmosphere. With the addition of tasteful samples and puncturing screams, its undeniable that BATTLEFIELDS are headed in an impressive direction.” — Decibel Magazine

“The missing link between Isis and Converge, their brutal hardcore-infused-doom metal is as head-explodingly heavy and visceral as it is soothing and cerebral.” —

“With nods toward the stratified ambience of Red Sparowes and the hellacious mathiness of Converge, Minnesota’s BATTLEFIELDS straddle dreaminess and despair with equally vicious grace.” — The Onion

“This is how the end of the world should sound.”
— Mammoth Press
