“In terms of heaviness, Ufomammut’s other key selling point, production and overall approach be praised, because this is undoubtedly the heftiest material the band has assembled to date. 9/10” – Metal Review
“Ufommamut are a crushing doom band but in my mind, they are also taking psychedelic rock to places it has never been before. Full of emotional depth, atmospheric complexities and breath-taking melodies and riffing; ‘Oro: Opus Primum’ is the most detailed, ambitious piece of work that Ufomammut have ever recorded. 9.5/10.” – Doommantia
“If YOB were higher, they might sound like this. If an alt-Earth Iommi trapped a Hawkwind radio signal in a hyper-stretched tunnel through time-space and fed it frightening amounts of sonic steroids, this album might exist in multiple dimensions of reality…” – Chronicles of Chaos
“…for spaced-out doom done right, it doesn’t get much better. 9/10” – Hellbound
“As if endlessly searching for its own soul, Opus Primum digs deep into enormity, the album’s limitlessness of sound both an enticing draw into Ufomammut’s vision and as an enthralling primer for their follow-up, Opus Alter. 4.5/5” – Stereokiller
