“…a MUST HAVE for all metal fans…. not only one of the best albums of 2013, but it’s their finest record to date, and one that assures that true metal will live on for many years!” – Skulls ‘n’ Bones

“All of the incredible essential elements of SKELETONWITCH are present: mad-gallop rabid-horse guitars? Check. 1920s madman submachine gun drumming? Check. Chance Garnette’s bug-eyed, leather-larynx, rock-gargling vocals? Triple check. Stop-on-a-dime time-signature change-ups? You know it. God bless these maniacs – they’ve done it again.” – eMusic

“…the defining moment for the band, the most assured record in their catalog…” – No Clean Singing

“Serpents Unleashed is another great dose of blackened thrash with a hint of old-school metal energy…” – Lambgoat

“…irrefutable proof that SKELETONWITCH is the kind of band that we can trust even with our eyes closed… their best record to date.” – Ghost Cult

“The solid production, tightened instrumentals, and effective songwriting are the elements that elevate this opus to one of the top albums of 2013.” – Metalholic

“…the band is more evil than ever and have returned with a creative, inspired, brutal and soul crushingly evil vengeance. Should you still be worshiping The Witch? Two words… fuck yes.” – Volumes of Sin

“…vicious, chaotic, fun, and ultimately a thrashing time for those involved… one of the year’s best…” – Metal Observer
