This album received stellar reviews from all over the world. A full list of reviews with links can be found HERE. But here are some quotes :

Heavy songs of first class quality and great arrangements with a lot of musical understanding run through all songs. There is actually no weak song on “Usurper”.

Across these 8 songs, the approach to riffcraft and structuring remains fluid, rolling on through classic doom, epic heavy, sprightly melodeath, and a few more reflective parts without batting an eyelid.””The Dutch crew truly have an innate grasp of songwriting that attends both to the details and the bigger picture.”

Usurper” has proven to be a very welcome surprise in a year that has already been strong when it comes to doom metal.”

A great album, full of adjectives and layers. River Of Souls delivered material with a high degree of inspiration and intelligence.”

“… the album always surprises with amazingly thrashy passages, with wild string shredding, blast beats or a whipping drive that drives the pulse up, a temporary throaty-rough scream ,  individual wacky guitar solos and harmonic experiments that shape the musical happenings almost progressively – but almost always with an aggressive, biting character – ensuring the uncategorisability.”
