GBHBL Review: "Mortal Blood’s sound can be summed up as big, doomy, black and death infused metal. A sound that lands on the mind with all the force of a granite block dropped from a skyscraper. A sound that seeps into the soul and freezes the blood in the veins. It’s miserable darkness, but addictive miserable darkness..."

Doom Heart Review: "Enjoy this veritable musical jewel..."

Sïstēr Märy Båphømêt review - "Dark, broodingly atmospheric and wholly nihilistic...."

RiffofMetal Review: "Dense atmosphere, lead by clean voice and flashes of Gothic Metal."
