Top ten debut albums of 2008.
DOOM METAL ALLIANCE
Elliott's Keep have delivered one of the freshest sounding Metal CD's in 2008… epic album… great production enhances the crushing riffing of this band …
fine old school headbanging metal going on… Highly Recommended. 9/10
Solitude Aeturnus will always be the first name in Texas doom metal, but in Elliott’s Keep, I believe I have found the second.
ELLIOTT’S KEEP combines measured Epic Doom with elements of classic Heavy Metal and known Thrash/Death trademarks. Thus the whole sound gains diversion and originality. The widespread epic parts are brilliant at heavy guitar riffs and Doom pathos. Who expects native Doom Rock has to be disabused while listening to “In Medias Res”, because the Metal hammer is fairly swung. ELLIOTT’S KEEP play in fact hot-blooded Epic Death Doom … a diversified, premium instrumental and well produced album.
DOOM METAL FRONT
A doom album made to last the ages…a spectacular and controlled effort of precise and solid doom glory [8.5]
Perhaps you've read the words epic and brilliant in a review before. You've probably dismissed it as they are often overused words and inappropriate for the music being talked about. This time, however, they are both words that truly describe the debut album from Dallas, Texas doom band Elliott's Keep.
PLUTONIUM ZINE – Crestfallen Kev
Take a portion of Solitude Aeturnus and add a very small percentage of aggression from any extreme genre. Combine it with an excellent instrumental skill and a granitic rhythmic session with a very modern sound…Excellent debut for Elliott's Keep…Now I look for the second one... SCORE: 81
Killer from beginning to end … an outstanding debut album…
ANCIENT DEATH WEBZINE
With the first crushing heavy guitar riff, Elliott's Keep prove the name of their game is "traditional" doom and they mean business.
WINTER TORMENT E-ZINE
Fans of underground US doom metal will rejoice with this release as this band is in the same league with other great bands, such as Last Chapter and Orodruin.
