"The entire EP is tumultuous, picking you up on the melodic pieces just to drop you on your fragile melon during the metallic onslaughts. …From the Deep’s ability to mix and mash genres together while never getting confused about their true identity is a feat all in its own. The odd time signatures, tempo changes and the complete hyperactivity of the EP catch you off guard more than you’re willing to admit."
"Although there are elements of accessibility, like the gorgeous melodic intros to “The Triumph of Sisyphus” and “Labyrinth (of melting thoughts)”, …From the Deep’s debut EP is a pummeling assault of odd time signatures, tremolo picking, sudden tempo changes, and blast beats of truth. The majority of the cuts alternate between death/black metal influences, often interchanging on a dime, effortlessly segued by a ferocious yet precise rhythm section."
"Each opus swells like the tide with a natural yet rhythmic rise and fall making the tension in each song more visceral and the release more satisfying. Musically, the band is as unpredictable as the changes in the sea by straddling between nefarious black metal and downtrodden thrash. Vocally, the band is a tortured soul twisted by the waves and swept to sea crying out for rescue."
"Their newest EP, The Absurd Horror, is technical and relentless, and features a wild variety of harsh vocal techniques and audio experimentation."
"In my opinion ...From the Deep are a very great sounding melodic and technical mixture of black, death and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Unspeakable" and 'We Will All Be Trees". 8 out of 10."
