"This 14 minute EP is a dark and inclusive EP to listen to. The reflective tone is something for most metal fans to give into." - www.itsthealternative.com
" ..the group’s stunning new track “Old Blood,"... ebbs and flows through staggering southern grooves and suffocating doom to surprisingly buoyant instrumental interludes" - www.heavyblogisheavy.com
"Opener "Old Blood" is very reminiscent of Sumac or Isis' more concise moments, the sludge smart and brainy, but without lessening the sonic impact. I love how as the song goes on, the bpm ticker just gets lower and slower, until you get to a point where the open space is the heaviest of all: excellent stuff." - bravewords.com
"It's a one-two punch of songs, but this pair of tracks will pump you up then let you down easy. Song one is absolutely devastating, then track two is ethereal and ambient track. A brief EP from this trio is just what you need today." - www.metalinjection.net
" North’s implacable momentum pushes stubbornly forward against equally stubborn resistance, like they’re walking into a gale loaded with blowing sand, but the music’s tone isn’t as grim and resigned as that might suggest: busy fills and flourishes in the drums graft a nimble, light-footed feel onto the trudging riffs, and the songs are lit like a dusk thunderstorm by glinting guitar harmonics and bright arpeggios." - www.chicagoreader.com
"..guitar riffs are dropped down to teeth-crumbling tuning and the bass rattles the rib cage while the drums take a beating that only Mike Tyson could dish out at his fiercest. Musically, these pair of songs “Old Blood” and “Silverfeather” are dominating, riff-tastic onslaughts of the music brain." - innocentwords.com
