"The midpoint of 'On This Day You Lose Faith' glows and warms with wholly enveloping fog and viscosity, so we can't fully escape Sabbathian nods. Led on the bass of Thomas Beals, this winter sidewalk is lined more with regret than thin ice. Spitting embers into a revved-up Hetfield shuffle, this track essentially finds the band hitting every cylinder between spirals and plods. Punk's straightforward clarity shines through Astaroth Crowley's matter-of-fact vocal, echoing Rollins and Graffin but ultimately making us question whether Black Seal fit as a Sunday Sludge feature. The way this track marches and announces its own presence, however, renders categorization completely irrelevant."

- Seth Grennan, Heavy Planet

"...The album's most unique track, 'On This Day You Lose Faith', a song full of great chord play and speed changes that really highlight the band's affinity for classic punk. Singer Astaroth Crowley croons through the chorus, resetting the tempo to a near halt, which, in the end, makes the song all that much stronger and atmospheric."

- Joe Witthaus, Ride With The Devil

"This range of influences continues into the next track, ‘On This Day You Lose Faith’ which opens with a forlorn plaintive melody which wouldn’t be out of place on some Gothy Shoegaze track. Then the rapid pace changes come in and take it into the Crossover territory again, before descending into doomier pace, with some very nice chorused or overdubbed guitar lead riffing. Some crisp martial snares and some wild phasing on the guitar before it fades away."

- Gordon Cameron, The Sleeping Shaman

"Its punk-rock roots, the blues, and garage psychedelic rock inform its current sound, as do bands like Butthole Surfers and Motorhead . . . Their music fuses genres, creating something enveloping and attractive, something originally familiar."
