“We are glad to finally have this album released, quite a lot of work was put into it, and it really was a great learning experience. Bringing in the new far eastern oriental influences has really added a new twist to the development of our own unique style. I feel it is only just the beginning. This album showcases many new fresh and original ideas that we had to put on the table. Originality and being able to catch the listener’s attention has always been a goal for us, that and writing and playing what we enjoy as well. We’ve made this to reach out to our loyal fans and our new potential fans as well.”

“Elderoth delivers a challenging sound that is catching the attention of metal aficionados, guitarists and professional musicians around the world for its pinnacle of musicianship, composition and technical ingenuity.” – Metal-Rules.com
“Elderoth are the brainchild of a certain Collin McGee, and his singular vision has produced a unique metal sound…a sublime release.” – Hellbound
“Strong prog-metal is usually reserved for DREAM THEATER and the countries of Europe. But this album has put the entire community on notice. Name recognition will only take you so far. This music is fresh, crisp and chocked full of melodies, and keeps one step ahead of you, making you long for more.” – Metal Temple
“Boasting a unique mix of metal music with oriental instruments, Elderoth stands out in the Quebec metal scene due to their overall difference to other acts from the area, and their new album Mystic shows that they might be one of the best in that scene.” – Audio Honesty
“Elderoth present a very uplifting album that feels absolutely genuine in its lyrical themes. Mystic takes full advantage of the Progressive Metal aspect of its sound to tackle other styles in a way that feels natural to the blend of Sonata Arctica andDragonForce-lite material that makes up the album, all the while exploring different atmospheres without any concern to whether it’s heavy enough or not. This commendable approach makes for a journey that leaves you actually feeling good about yourself by the end of this just under thirty-five minute self-released offering. If you’re into well composed music that doesn’t restrict itself to one specific sub-genre of Metal in a way that feels one hundred percent fluid from start to finish, Mystic is something you are going to want to check out right away.” – Apoch’s Metal Review
“After the first spin of Mystic, my immediate reaction was that this music, these arrangements, are quite dense. Mostly this comes from the riffage and orchestration. You could further define the compositions as being either, in the worst sense, busy and cluttered, or in the best sense, complex and intriguing. It’s a knotty conundrum. Eventually, I think it will come down to the each listener’s subjective experience…Call it ambitious and bombastic, Elderoth’s Mystic will definitely give you some music to ponder.” – Danger Dog Review
