"Let’s cut straight to the point here – ‘Vestigial’ is a fantastic piece of work full on intrigue. With many moving parts and creative changes of feel and pace, the track will do much more than hold your interest throughout its near-five-minute duration. The bass work of Pacaud here is outstanding, building a solid foundation for the track to grow around, at times feeling like the vocalist of the band… Do yourself a favor and get to know the band before Morphose makes its way into the world!" - Everything Is Noise

"Morphose is an epic and ambitious set of songs, orchestrated and cinematic on the whole but harboring moments of intensity and crushing hugeness, at times feeling like an instrumental Opeth. There are elements of more spacious post-metal, material that feels more like a grand film score, and intense bursts of awe-inspiring power." - Treble
