“Downfall of Gaia make a huge statement with what could be one of the finest post metal records in recent memory.” – 4.5/5

“Pitted somewhere between modern psychedelic black metal and barbed doom of Neurosis, there’s a cold smother to Downfall of Gaia’s sound that envelopes you like an iron winter fog. With a pallet so rich in shades of grey, Downfall of Gaia have crafted ‘Suffocating in The Swarm of Cranes’ to be as evocative as it is desolate.Terrorizer Magazine

“There isn’t a dull moment of this release, even the moody parts are fraught with tension as you wait for some sort of impending release whether it’s a hardcore crust beatdown or breathtaking black hued blasting peak, fraught with emotion.”
