Praise for Regenerate (2024)

"A changing amalgam of straight-up barbaric death metal, prog-death metal, melodic death metal, and even – as you venture deeper into the album – elements from good old heavy metal and hard rock. It really is remarkable, from beginning to end!" (No Clean Singing)

"It takes quite a while between each time I’m presented with technical death metal of such a solid calibre and with such great appeal and likability." (Norway Rock Magazine)
