"[...] There are stretches where [Zalhietzli] submerges the auditory space in sustained, metal-shearing swathed in echo and bleeding static that seems to encircle and seduce the ear, molting impressively increasing amounts of feedback, as if forever hardening and becoming brittle and shattering before somehow re-constituting itself and perpetuating a cycle of sorts. The last several minutes suggest something very dangerous and very hungry breathing inches from your face, but by the time you've arrived at that point, the effect is more reassuring than foreboding. There are much, much worse ways to die, and, actually, to live."
" "Hox" has a gong-like timbre about it, as if the listener is being swung steadily towards, and then away from, a rippling, vacillating din, flung hither and yon through a series of black holes en route to God knows where or when."
"[...] Zalhietzli’s use of sounds and composition truly make this an enjoyable little release. The manipulation of sounds and energy is used properly to portray an environment of aggression yet resilience. The most intense track being the title track, “Hox”, however I recommend listening from track 1 all the way to the end to appreciate the full spectrum of noise construction and destruction. "
