"Face the Master, would fit comfortably on a shelf alongside Kylesa's first few albums and any High on Fire disc ... With only two songs to its credit, Face the Master is a short ride, but you bet your ass it's one worth taking." - Noisey

"They prove that they can bring the HEAVY with the best of them. What gets me going about this band is their use of melody, which they wrap around GIANT riffs."
- Cvlt Nation

"it’s just a joy to have Shroud Eater back, the efficiency of their neo-sludge on display in the 2:44 'Face the Master'; destructive thrash to a slowed-down, harmonized finish worthy of whatever ’90s comparison you’d want to attach to it." - The Obelisk

"Bewitching is an apt descriptor for the band’s towering, detuned riffs and strung-out melodies. I was into Shroud Eater before, but I have to say these tunes really got my full attention and feature some of the band’s most intense songwriting and playing to date. Great stuff. " - HellRide Music

“A record that will crack your skull with primal heaviness and a wonderful touch of evil. Shroud Eater manage to say more in under ten minutes of music than a lot of bands can say on whole albums.”  -  Two Guys Metal Reviews

"They are the future of sludge metal." - Ghost Cult Magazine

"For an EP that just barely misses the six-and-a-half minute mark, Shroud Eater manage to cover a lot of group, leaving you with two incredibly addicting performances that will leave you seeking out more, if not at least revisiting this repeatedly shortly after it ends." - Apochs Metal Review
