"This music makes me want to burn down my neighborhood and wallow in the remaining sludgy aftermath."
"Make no mistake, this is highly evocative music. Through the use of space between the instruments, sound effects (both sampled and reproduced) and titles, the band conjure up a world of barrenness and despondency, where evil lurks throughout the hearts of the people and the only escape is to aim for the stars."
"...maybe I'm making this all up now, it's quite possible I've been unwittingly submerged into the message of Marking the Day through overexposure and allowing my mind to wander along their suggested themes. It does that."
"The ground feels like it is opening up beneath your feet and destined to drag you below. Ages pass with little in the way of life. All that exits is the earth shaking tones created."
"Occasionally as you listen to this album, rather than sounding like music, it’s like you’re experiencing a force of nature. Somehow, Nomadic Rituals have managed to channel this raw power into six frighteningly competent songs. Listening to Marking the Day is like listening to a slowly building thunderstorm of biblical proportions."
