"The slow, acid-dripped doom riffs of 'Scorched!' immediately craft a smoky atmosphere and you start to envision your drop-out friend "packin' that shit." He might not like it when we're thrust forward in time, if only briefly, on fuzzy hair-trigger thrash. As a whole, the opener is a dense amalgam of homages strewn with dark vibes, man. Wavy Gravy warned you about that brown acid, didn't he?"

- Seth Grennan, Heavy Planet

"...A fuzzy array of slow sounds that soon erupt into an instrumental powerhouse channeling a strong blues/70's rock rhythm that perfectly sets up the rest of the record's slow-then-fast-then-really-fast-then-back-to-slow pace."

- Joe Witthaus, Ride With the Devil

"Black Seal‘s new EP, 'Pyre', starts off with a haunting bass and drum rhythm intro that will remind you of Samhain, then the band quickly busts a right turn into jam session mode (rather randomly I might add) and BAM! Where the hell did that punk rock come from?"

- Chuck Livid, TuffGnarl

"Opener ‘Scorched’ is an instrumental, with some pretty slick tempo changes, veering between slow, dragging Sabbath riffs to punkier double-timing. Quite urgent in the faster paced sections, then in the blink of an eye back to a viscous sludge of a sound."

- Gordon Cameron, The Sleeping Shaman
