Metal Maniacs Magazine - March 2007 (D. Gehlke)
"For a power trio, Solace of Requiem pack a rather heavy punch, throwing
jabs and hooks via a healthy assortment of angular, crunchy riffing and mosh
parts that are thicker than a steak at the country buffet. The mid-section
of "Red Sea" exemplifies this best, as a slow, lurching riff blasts the song
off into a morbid Angel-like solo section that is worthy repeated listens.
Instead of taking the easy route and pummeling the listener with an endless
barrage of blastbeats and tempos that test the limits of a metronome, Solace
of Requiem prefer to let its riffs and structures do the talking. In
"Language of the Gods" and album highlight "Lost/Vapors", the band dishes
out '90s-esque riffage that would have the Florida oldschool foaming at the
mouth, while epic album closer "Cry Out for Mercy" proves the band has a
knack for errie and carresing dynamics...."
