“Heavy as all hell and unflinching in its biting social commentary.” - Revolver “Expect the unexpected with Avatar!” - Loudwire “Their most ambitious effort to date, voyaging through ferocious heavy metal and more delicate arrangements alike” - Guitar World “The record’s a huge step forward for the Swedish quintet, showcasing a genre-straddling power that will result in them reaching countless virgin ears.” - The Pit “Even when the world is turned upside down, we can count on Avatar to churn out an opus of groovy, melodic metal that sings and soars.” - Consequence of Sound “Avatar are back and they are heavier than ever.” - Metal Injection "Avatar continues to reinvent the wheel as they went from lighthearted humor with Avatar Country to dark and bleak with their upcoming album" - Metal Insider “If Avatar is out to do anything with its in-your-face music, it’s hoping to be true to its namesake as that not-so-subtle teacher, helping fans open up to another possible way of being.” - LiveKindly
