What folks around town are saying:
"For the duration of five tracks, you feel as though you've been caught in a time warp. Could this really be a new piece of music, or have the ghosts of the seventies psychedelic titans come back to haunt us? But alas, it is the former. The recording and executon of this EP alone leave a lasting impression; they've captured the sound and feel of nearly three decades of change and evolution in every note. But the substance is just as important, and just as impressive. Schmitz, Bell, and Bartell aren't riding the wave of some cheesy gimmick that should have been discarded a decade ago; they are making it work in their favor. The music fits the concept, the concept fits the lyrics, and the lyrics fit the sound. It is a perfect circle of musical theory."
-from Sorrow Eternal
"This really is not only an incredible release, but a testament to the band's extraordinary talent as songwriters and explorers of dark, crushing, metal music."
-from Metal Storm
"Overall – Book of Hours – is another outstanding collection of songs from one of the best bands within the US Sludge/Stoner Metal underground. If you want something dark and very psychedelic then this is the release for you."
"Book of Hours is a well-crafted, more lucid side a Sleestak that shows a clear progression from the spacier side of life."
-from Stoner Hive
