Spotnik Music: Yen Pox have crafted an album here that sounds like it could serve as a soundtrack for humanity’s final days…The most impressive aspect of Between The Horizon and the Abyss is how easily accessible it is. It flows from start to finish. You can turn the lights and your phone off, turn the music up and get hooked effective immediately. This is another strong effort from the seasoned veteran duo.

Brainwashed.com:Yen Pox manages to supersede the tendency to simply emphasize bass frequencies and bury everything in reverb to attempt sounding creepy. Instead, this album is a high water mark, with Between the Horizon and the Abyss being eight distinct pieces that all work brilliantly as their own individual cinematic psychodramas. Cinematic may be a term that is often overused, but it is befitting an album of this depth and complexity.

Heathen Harvest: Between the Horizon and the Abyss is one of the few releases of the past few years that has simply come as advertised. It is a triumph of the genre and is destined to be a celebrated gem. One can only imagine that it is the lack of quantity that has provided such astounding quality on Between the Horizon and the Abyss, but with this reminder that there are still new levels to achieve, we can only hope that it isn’t another 15 years of near-dormancy before another full-length surfaces.
