"[...]a towering monument to wretchedness[...]"
-Benjamin Handelman, Black Metal And Brews blackmetalandbrews.blogspot.com/2012/10/music-review-venowl-patterns-of-failure.html
"Crawling, lurching riffs, blood-curdling screams, and a black drone sensibility collide to create the mammoth sound on this album, which is by far my favorite Venowl recording this far. It really is quite amazing."
-Harold Niver, Hammer Smashed Sound www.hammersmashedsound.com/2012/08/venowl-patterns-of-failure-cdr-and-no.html
"This is sonic butchery that is a disturbing and discomforting listen. It’s like they’re a collective of souls being dragged to hell and flailing wildly to snatch up and pull as many of us as possible in tow behind them."
-Dave Miller, Foxy Digitalis www.foxydigitalis.com/foxyd/?p=35553
"The three tracks that comprise this debut full-length are long, ill-disciplined, and unruly pieces of blackened funeral doom, and I mean that in the best possible way."
-Ian Flick, Don't Count On It Reviews dontcountonitreviews.blogspot.com/2012/07/venowl-patterns-of-failure-2012.html
