Finally compiled are the enormous amount of reviews that Secular Hymns garnered due to Malignant’s excellent promotion/distribution methods. Check out the Xiphoid Dementia Press page to read them in full.

There’s much more than can be be quoted here but among some highlights are:

This is one more essential release featured on the Malignant Records roster and one more project you have to discover. Terror has never been so delightful! – Sideline Magazine

…incredible sonic brain twisters… brilliant. – Forbidden Magazine

Xiphoid Dementia have effectively turned any preconceived expectations I might have had on their head and produced a complex and striking album in the process. – Noise Receptor

Noise, as a whole, is too filled with mediocrity. It’s because it’s too easy. Get a pedal, run a microphone through that, run that through some more pedals, stick it all in a suitcase, bring it to a “show” in someone’s closet, and you’re a band, right? – Deaf Sparrow

Before I turn to the music, some thoughts on the artwork – it’s only a few illustrations, but the symbolism within them would be enough for several releases: religious fanaticism, holy wars, the collapse of the concept of time, memory, emotions and the ways to manipulate them…. Check it out, even if you’re not really into power electronics, because although genre sounds are certainly the basis here, “Secular Hymns” is really above genres. – Santa Sangre

If ever there was ambient sounds to truly inspire the industrial artist, these are them. – Rome Ruined

I should make mention of the bizarre artwork on this 6-panel digipak which I won’t even try to describe; it’s just really, really weird. – Chain DLK

If the music could be compared to alcoholic drinks, ‘Secular Hymns’ could have a taste of Jägermeister for sure. – Brutal Resonance
