“Inire rides that line of hard rock and southern metal well, they give southern metal a hard-hitting edge that so many bands in the sub genera lack making them more accessible to so many listeners. This album is a hefty 13 tracks and 43 minutes long. They have managed to keep your interest for the duration, it runs seamlessly and is so cohesive its impressive that they didn’t seem to go off track once. This is one blazing fast riff and momentous moment after the next keeping you pinned to your chair the entire time. ” – Metal Nexus
