"Dreadlords is a modern update on age-old delta blues tropes and apocalyptic gospel instilled with the fervor and mangy menace of heavy metal."


"Dreadlords’ nightmarishly psychotropic music conjures up mental images of the swamps and bayous of backwoods Louisiana in much the same way most black metal evokes the forests and frozen peaks of Northern Europe."


"This group of ritualistic racket-makers summon up an unholy concoction of apocalyptic blues, Satanic southern gospel and shamanic sacrilege."
