Review and links
"Scorched Earth". The opening riff is very good and then on the second pass can hear the lines of cello getting involved in a wave of melancholy. We follow this slowness to approximately half of the song, where we have a little change of pace. Here we find an acoustic passage and halfway rustic because it mixes with a hiss of something burning.
Going forward we have the dark "The Last Stand Against the Gloom". In this range we find that typical touch Funeral Doom, with slow riffs, drums in "slow motion" but beautifully crafted and cavernous vocals. It is an extensive range, as it should be, and in his half have an acoustic passage, with guitar and we can hear a cello line very well executed." - Funeral Wedding.
"Every once in a while, a release emerges which captures the essence of a particular style perfectly, epitomising its strongest sides. Such releases are likely to become classics or at least be remembered for a longer time than most others. When newcomers are involved, such an achievement is all the more impressive, and this is the case with Of Graves, of Worms, and Epitaphs: released on the very young Russian label GS Productions"

"Compared to "Ruins", contained in the subsidy-driven output, stands the absence of Kostas so that even the keyboards are handled by Richard Veronese, which makes the sound much more guitar-oriented and, in my opinion, even more effective than the already remarkable previous output. Scorched Earth is a song by the high drama, in which the band, supported by the distinguished guest Jarno Salomaa (Shape Of Despair) slows down the pace due to creating an atmosphere enveloping riffs that combine impact and melody, all enhanced by a magnificent vocal performance by Roberto Mura." - Iyezine
