`With this, the band achieves on their debut, what most cannot realize in their entire career. I take my hat off with the utmost respect.`
(Felix Patzig) 9/10 points DEAF FOREVER ####
`In the truest sense of the word `Als das Licht verging` exactly cultivates this special, fantastic, captivating kind of Pagan Black Metal, which forcefully, atmospherically clear and fervently anthemic rises to be its very own class.` (Markus Eck) SONIC SEDUCER ####
`AHNENKULT worship the ancient values and deliver German Pagan Black Metal in its purest distillation. Still `Als das Licht verging` is no revenant, but rather an interesting variation of classic motives.`
(Stefan A. Wolfsbrunn) METAL.DE ####
`AHNENKULT score with variability, because with their vocals and the musical tempos, the band employs the entire spectrum. No matter if its barbed vocals, heroic tenors or simply silent whispering, the duet uses everything in their slightly solemn compositions, which offer everything between lush guitars and Black Metal eruptions.`
