"I’m impressed. The opening riff in “Whispers and Dust” is an immediate head-grabber, and from there the music pulls you along on a hell of ride that takes you not only through a desert of riff-driven stoner/sludge/doom but also out into the space lanes. The music is both powerfully heavy and densely atmospheric. The crushing riffs are irresistible, the drumwork is explosive, and the vocals are appealingly gritty and thoroughly impassioned."
- Islander, No Clean Singing
"Funeral Dirge is the final act, the epic conclusion of Titan’s journey, or perhaps another kind of beginning. The territory, and the sound, in which Antero Sleeps dare to go may be not new or unknown, but that’s not important for me: they are not towed, they are tuning their personal engine, they are telling stories, and I follow them willingly."
- Mortimer Potts, Yours Heavily
"This is a band that is perfect for fans of Yob, Neurosis, and early Mastodon. These guys have the music and the concept, and when combined they have something that really can set them apart from the pack."
- Aaron Sullivan, Metal Bandcamp
"I have read the lyrics to each song and have to say I’m hooked. As a somewhat writer, storytelling in songs have always given me the warm fuzzies. I was even more pleased to see that the band has full-blown stories written that go help enhance the music and better understand the songs on a whole new level. I have to say I am deeply impressed with this band on every level and eagerly await any new material be it written story or musical."
- Alex Martinez, The Musical Junkie
