“Technically adept, and perhaps even challenging to the unseasoned metal listener, The Dead Walk is clearly the strongest effort to date from New England scene stars The Acacia Strain.” – Alternative Press magazine

“It’s The Acacia Strain’s rationale that makes them somewhat of a standout: there isn’t an established category called “Heavy As Fuck.” – Unrestrained! magazine

“It could be one of the big extreme releases of the year…the guys have streamlined their sound and their lineup, creating a solid disc heavy on breakdowns and with no shortage of metal riffs all over the place.” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine

“Think the oppressive groove of Mastodon with the stodgy beats of Throwdown, and the hellish screams of your childhood nightmares. This is the sort of noise that makes dogs whimper, mountains shudder, babies cry and your mates dance – all at the same time.” – Metal Hammer magazine

“Quite clearly the art of sophisticated bloodthirsty tech metal is entering a new renaissance period and it is albums like this that are leading the charge.” – The PRP
