Xavier Russel of Kerrang! called it a great debut album, with songs played "at a hundred miles an hour" Canadian journalist Martin Popoff praised the well-produced sound and the "almost operatic anti-thrash vocals" from Turbin, considering the album responsible for "putting New York back on the US metal map, and quality back in the books of bruising and uncompromising underground metal."
