“…brutal, icy hot, super heavy, [and] full of lurching ‘grooves…'” — Stereogum

“LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH set out to make their demons visible and to inject their dark knowledge into their music. There are many pretenders to that aim in black metal, but, as The Extra Dimensional Wound proves, few are as serious as a heart attack like these guys.” — Music Emissions

“Autarch’s words seem to come from another place, ethereal and disturbing. ‘Nihilistic Stench’s’ double bass and blackened thrash, rips and shreds the flesh, until finally, ‘Path to Chaos’ gives the true sense of how much potential LSOD has with creating atmosphere, great song-writing, but most importantly, terror.” — The Gauntlet

“The most incongruous fact about LSOD is that they are from Los Angeles, ground zero for Baywatch, Hollywood and loathsome glam metal like Motley Crue and L.A. Guns. They have done their hometown proud; Nikki Sixx would crap his pants if he ever heard this album.” —
