"I have a distinct feeling that this will be on many people’s year-end lists. It’s that good. It’s not overblown and fancy, and it sticks in your head. What an excellent album from start to finish." - www.echoesanddust.com/2018/08/radiant-knife-science-fiction/

"These guys have layered their new record with all sorts of fascinating songwriting bells and whistles. This is an album that ebbs and flows, it can almost be perceived as breathing. It has a life all of its own and Radiant Knife aren't so much composers as they are the mad scientists working desperately to make the entire thing low." - www.metalinjection.net/latest-news/sludge-masters-radiant-knife-bring-unrelenting-riffs

"Consider it a melty, prog-rock stream of Torche-worthy production, the space-faring adventurousness of Today is the Day‘s ‘Supernova’ and a glowering mix of atmospheric sludge/modern doom metal’s search for meaning." - grizzlybutts.com/2018/08/10/radiant-knife-science-fiction-2018-review/

"The Louisiana duo take their cues from thrash and prog metal, but often sound like a heavier Rush than Mastodon or Intronaut, two acts of imminent comparison. Singer and guitarist Stephen Sheppert performs without strain while drummer Greg Travasos unlocks hidden messages within the tempo. One can sense how well the duo sync as once recognizable patterns build until layered and distinct. This approach reminds me of Loincloth, a band that summons demons but never spins wildly out of control." - www.invisibleoranges.com/radiant-knife-premiere/

"From the dreamy but radical (riffs, clean singing and a guitar sound that invites you to come along on this journey) 'Swarming Lights Surround You' on I get the impression that the band has entered a territory in which they are absolute masters and in which they manage to combine a certain kind of calmness with a bizarre sense of heaviness. Although this sounds like a paradox, it really is a great relationship: mystical and a tad desolate. - www.lordsofmetal.nl/en/reviews/view/id/37398

"Science Fiction is one of the weirdest and psychedelic offerings I've heard this year. Next to Boss Keloid, Radiant Knife is merging real intelligence into the realm of Doom/Sludge Metal." - outlawsofthesun.blogspot.com/2018/07/radiant-knife-science-fiction-album.html
