Lands album reviews:
Decibel Magazine – 7/10 | How to play doom like you give a shit.
Heavy Blog is Heavy – Lands is excellent. It is evocative, brilliantly executed, thoroughly engaging, and a masterclass of effective subgenre melding. Elements of Inter Arma, Gloson, Oceanwake, and Thou are all present here.
The Quietus – Lands grabs you from the second you press play.
Toilet ov Hell – 4.5/5 | Lands sticks out in this sudden resurgence of doom. Perhaps it’s most important feature is that it’s not too much of anything. It’s sludgy, melodic, angry, depressed, unrelenting, and deliberate, but never for longer than you can handle.
Svbterranean – 8/10 | The record’s effortless integration of black and post-metal into relentless and dynamic doom metal makes it one of the best releases of the genre so far this year.
Dead Rhetoric – Lands is an album that has no problem stepping over lighter bands in terms of heaviness and depth.
Distorted Sound – 9/10 | With an emotional rawness and a soothing finish, BEREFT prove themselves to be a promising upcoming foursome. The truly unique display of innovative thought put into the new album, Lands, concludes that it might just be one of the best doom releases of 2017.
Lost Ages album reviews:
CVLT Nation – “The fuzz-caked bass that opens “Unwelcome” doesn’t prepare you for the almost Jesu soaring that is about to lift off.”
The Monolith – “Bereft have made the most of that this half-hour by putting forth a very convincing release that should set them up for some serious success in the near future.”
Cosmos Gaming – “Bereft’s inclusion of clean singing is what surprised me the most though, as the transition over to very soft, melodic ranges gives their material quite a bit more depth than some of the others in the genre. It’s a direction they should definitely expand upon as they progress, especially since they have a vocalist that’s very capable of pulling it off.”
Mostly Midwest – “The sharp cuts from atmospheric noise into blast beats never sound forced, and their ability to add doom to the mix is what I love about the record.”
American Aftermath – “All in all, Bereft‘s Lost Ages is another welcomed addition to the whole post-metal/black metal hybrid style.”
OccultBlackMetalZine – “Bereft are a very great sounding mixture of post black metal and doom”
