"Changed, and yet unchanging, it’s precisely this paradox which is at the centre of In Pieces, a compelling enigma which necessitates multiple spins to truly appreciate and comprehend.
It’s an album of the year contender, make no mistake about it." - Andy Synn, NO CLEAN SINGING
"The album has the right amount of ferocity and clarity, balanced and heavy and is intense at all levels of listening.... Great album." - 9/10, Folk-Metal.nl
"Occasionally hard-hitting and always leaving an emotional impact, In Pieces is easily Oak Pantheon’s strongest effort to date. There’s so much that the band gets right here, particularly in their writing of the multiple 10-minute plus tracks, that so many other bands in this style completely botch. Those seeking an album with triumphant riffs and resonating melodies will find much to celebrate." -9/10, Dead Rhetoric
"In Pieces is an outstanding album that is both a bold statement and at the same time a promise of what this duo might still be capable of in the future." -9/10, The Metal Observer
