The album has received mixed to positive reviews, with Allmusic saying that "the Chicago alt-metal sextet reins in their brand of extreme metalcore. Joey Buras' synthesized soundscapes play a bigger part on this release than on the more brutal last two outings, 2009's A Higher Place and 2011's The Discovery . Considering that the technical wizardry of the guitarists, bassist, and drummer were a huge draw for fans, pushing their instrumentation into the abyss of synthesized strings makes their wicked cacophony feel less jarring. Even so, the roar of lead vocalist Ronnie Canizaro adds a welcome, savage counterpoint to the melodic aspects of the album." [2]
