"...An undeniably claustrophobic and uncompromising record, The Burnt Tower/Babylon The Great is an excellent and compelling release and a perfect companion for bedtime listening on the eve of the oncoming of Armageddon..."
Steve Rhodes / Soundblab
"...The Burnt Tower (6'48") begins as a quiet and attractive track on which dark drones and volatile synths create a slightly menacing atmosphere, but after no more than a minute they are replaced by the sound of a piano and bell-like percussion, while dark repetitive guitar drones go gently crescendo as the smoldering fire of the intro has become a fire. We hear howling drones and a panicky piano, and when after four and a half minutes the flames burst through the roof, loud drones and whistling synths suggest that the tower is burning like a torch. What remains is a smoldering ruin, to the sound of evaporating drones and synths. Babylon the Great (5'31") gets striking wood-sounding and bell-like percussion from the start. The synths are whistling quietly through the soundscape, accompanied by sporadic electric guitars for the sharp edges. After two minutes, synths and drones create a symphonic dimension: the majestic soundtrack for a journey through the hanging gardens and the cyan-colored gate, decorated with animal motifs, to the pyramid-like building at the heart of the city: the tower of Babel. The synths are pushed aside by industrial-sounding drones, which, in conjunction with heavy percussion, climb the mythical structure in the direction of heaven, a place of peace and tranquility..."
