"[The] shifts in style and tone are done with an almost innate knowledge from its members in how to artfully establish a sonic manuscript from which the band can pull for inspiration. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise given the pedigree of its members, but Underling are in a very advantageous position as being a band that truly can do just about anything in the course of an album and get away with it. Bloodworship may have been a sleeper from 2015, but Underling have shown themselves worth more than to be compartmentalized as a mere side-project, but as a powerful creative force that can go anywhere from here." 4/5 - HeavyBlogIsHeavy
"Bloodworship more than lived up to expectations based on their cast of characters. Best of all, Underling sound remarkably little like any of the members’ other bands; they are entirely their own beast, a lumbering mammoth-like mix of death metal, black metal, post-hardcore and post-everything." - Metalsucks
"Bay Area sorta-supergroup containing members of Fallujah, Arkaik, Battlecross, and Sidian takes a leap from the death metal roots of its members and voyages into black metal territory. “Servant of Filth” puts a spin on the Americanized atmospheric black metal sound dominated by tremolo picking and blastbeats by offering a filthy propulsive bass groove that seems like the sort of thing Altar of Plagues would have built a song upon." - heavyblogisheavy
"This isn’t a band you listen to while on your phone or even driving in your car. The message this band is conveying is too vital and meaningful to have as background music with other mundane life activities. You need to listen to this band when each song can penetrate you deep to touch your soul, provoking you from within. And with multiple masterminds of bands such as Fallujah and Arkaik working together, you have a band that’s adept in their musical talent but have something to say to the world." - theageofmetal
"This is more aggressive and grinding than most bands one might have compared Underling to previously. Before this, the members of Underling weren’t standing out from the crowd, either in this project of their others. Now they’re making more noteworthy music." - InvisibleOranges
This is Underling's first debut full length. The goal we wanted to achieve is that the listener will not just listen to this album - but FEEL it...and the vast amount of emotion we put into each song. These are songs written based on life experience and are completely genuine in nature.
