“[Beyond The Lightless Sky] veers between motorcycle-revving D-beat, bog-trawling doom, sinister black metal, Neurosis drum-offs and hypnotic passages that gnash like a venom-dripping cousin to the final Isis album.” – The Village Voice (NYC)
“…a determined and significant release, and one thoroughly deserving of a lot more visibility in the realms of heaving, epic metal.” – Pop Matters
“…immense and nimble, ponderous and powerful…” – Exclaim!
“…crushingly heavy in a cerebral sense…” – The Obelisk
“There is a fantastic amount of riffs you’re going to want to repeatedly hear on this record. Couple that with some guitar solos that come out of nowhere and fit like gloves with the album’s songwriting and its layered vocal approach, and you’ve got a hell of a ride.” – SLUG
“HULL twisted heads off at South by Southwest sampling the band’s moody, doomy, sometimes boisterous post-rock debut, 2009’s Sole Lord, best defined by its three titles: ‘Endless Obsidian Abyss,’ ‘Wrath of the Sands,’ and ‘Born From Flesh and Stone.’ Everything’s doubly so for the Brooklyn fivepiece the second time around – longer (11-minute opener ‘Earth From Water’), heavier (the title track), subtler (‘Just a Trace of Early Dawn’) – coming together on 10-minute centerpiece ‘Fire Vein,’ sandblasted desert folk.” – The Austin Chronicle
“The band describe their sound as a collision of thrash, doom, classic rock and formal orchestral works’, this New York five piece have put together a very special collection on this album and it is something that grows on you with each listen as you find something new hidden away in the carefully constructed noise. With more experimental metal currently being lauded by the press, there is a definitely a chance for a band like HULL to break through, and on this form, they are highly deserving of that chance.” – Alternative Matter
