This has been a labour of love.
Making music is a necessity for me. And as you all know, that is the mother of invention.
"Lots of death metal will spread its blackened blossoms this year. For my money nothing's gonna touch the nauseous reality conveyed by Humanity Defiled on _Circling the Drain_." --- Chronicles Of Chaos
"The album itself opens with some of the most convincing and captivating drum-guitar melodies that I’ve heard in a long while. I can only hope for more releases like this from Denayer and his contemporaries, as this is some of the finer death metal I’ve had the pleasure of listening to recently."
"Het ene moment zit je te luisteren naar brute melodische deathmetal, het
andere moment hoor je zowaar doom. Iwein beheerst alles en brengt het met een heldere productie naar buiten, zonder in herhaling of clichés te vallen." --- deathmetal.be
"His work transforms his music into an expression of pain and grief, not simply an outlet for unbridled youthful energy that so many bland bands communicate. Everything on the album vibrates on a terrifying and cathartic level, but definitely check out the centerpiece “Exit?”. The darkness will enfold you." --- Decibel Magazine
"‘Circling the Drain’ is an unpretentious album full of powerful moments, simpler as well as deeper. It’s this rendition of Death Metal, oft-forgotten in these days, that makes this band special. The melodies and lead-playing is sublime and opportune. It easily kicks the shit out of the old school bands and brutal bands at the same time, and does something more." --- Transcending Obscurity
