White Hoarhound Quotations...
"Straightforward Black Sabbath worship with equally straightforward songs and fine emotional moments, a timeless piece" - Metal Hammer Germany
"Unlike other occult-themed bands I had the pleasure to listen to lately,Alunah are less focused on the mystical side of the lyrics, and are more Earth inspired."Belial Fjord" is opened by tribal percussions and yet again defines what Alunah's sound is about: epic and masterfully crafted doom. Lovers of doom/psychedelic music will absolutely enjoy this record, its slowpaced tempos, the vintage production and the lysergic riffs" - Femme Metal Webzine
"I thought they arrived in a big way with 'Call Of Avernus' but 'White Hoarhound' shows a band maturing at a rate that most other bands can only dream of" - Doomantia
"The second album by the UK band is a stunner. Not only is it first-rate English doom in the grand tradition of Cathedral" - MSN Entertainment
"UK doom metal juggernauts Alunah are back with their second offering of haunting riffs and piercing vocals that will have you floating away in a haze of bong smoke in no time" - Unhallowed Nation
"This album is already been acclaimed as a future classic and masterpiece. And you know what it. It fucking is. Alunah have delivered their best work to date. This should propel the guys onto the next level of Doom/Stoner Metal" - Sludgelord
"Now if we can get Soph, Hel & Taz from Undersmile, Mlny from Royal Thunder and Stevie from Dark Castle to form one big super-group I would die a happy man" - Sludgelord
"Vocalist Sophie Day’s accomplished vocals brought some color and life into doom, which was shocking in a way, as if someone pulled the curtains open and let the sun stream into a funeral service" - Fast 'n' Bulbous
"From the very beginning, you are taken on a journey, with Soph and the boys playing tour guide into the deep, dark depths of the doomy world they call home. “White Hoarhound” seems to have a mature and sophisticated feel to it. In their first album, I sensed the vibe that Alunah was ready to take on the world. With their latest release, I sensed that Alunah had become the world" - 339 Metal
"All hail British doom (after all we invented it) and all hail Alunah for producing an album that gives it a serious shot in the arm!" - Sleeping Shaman
"Fans of shroom-y, stoom-y doom should absolutely flip their wigs over White Hoarhound. Though I have no prior experience with Alunah’s sound other than this record, the band had no problem winning me over track to track. I went from knowing nothing about them, to becoming a big fan in an extremely short span of time. If you like this kind of hazy, mega-heavy smooth groove sound; you should consider this an essential purchase. Now time for this putz to go back and explore their previous releases!" - Hellride Music
