"This is grimy, sewer-dwelling slime in all the right ways, leaving trails of filth in your mind as the song blasts by like a speeding, on-fire train"
- Invisible Oranges
"Whether you are a fan of the consciousness-expanding sounds of Blood Incantation, the clubbing blows of Malignant Altar or the raw sewage personified that is Fetid, there was surely something that struck your fancy. It is only right, then, that we send this year straight to hell with one last death metal salvo: Skullcrush’s debut album, Archaic Towers of Annihilation."
- Toilet Ov Hell
"Archaic Towers of Annihilation is akin to the creatures that lived in the swamps of the Earth way back in its infancy. Thoughtless and beastly, its thoughts are only focused on one thing… consume."
- Games, Brrraaains, and a Headbanging Life
"This is a record that understands the breadth of the death metal genre....While usually the group goes for raw death metal brutality at times they can turn around and unleash something a little more sick and twisted. Archaic Towers Of Annihilation is simply a fun listen that brings the stomp and is unafraid to go for the gut plain and simple. This is a band who nicely distill the magic of death metal and will twist your neck while doing it."
- Two Guys Metal Reviews
"Five bands keep screaming at the back of my head when I listen to Skullcrush’s debut full length, Archaic Towers of Annihilation. Burial Invocation, Acephalix, Necrot, Succumb (USA) and Spectral Voice. If none of those are correct then I must be imagining things (which seems to have been the case lately). Coming in fresh from Phoenix Arizona the 4-piece demolition team has cracked open the shell of a rotten egg and has left it to sit within the underground for some time, yet only now the scent has met its peak. Though arriving late, it would be unfair to not mention the release as a worthy candidate among the best of 2019"
- Metal Bite
