“Some bands are known for pushing the envelope; LORD MANTIS have made their reputation by yanking it wide open and making the world look inside. The Chicago blackened sludge quartet manage to surprise and skeeve out listeners with every new release, courting a scathing, tormented sound that evokes images of bloating corpses and crime scene Polaroids.” – Kerrang!
“Universal Death Church is as much a resurrection of the LORD MANTIS sound as it is a step into a new era… It is a joyous occasion when a band makes a return with as much vitality as Lord Mantis. Universal Death Church is a statement of defiance in the face of death itself…” – Exclaim! Magazine
“Their mission seems to revolve around getting nastier and heavier with each subsequent release, and Universal Death Church represents another step forward on the road to this never-ending hell. For all the talk of misanthropy in the Metal world, these guys put their money where their mouth is and deliver the nihilism and degradation in spades.” – No Clean Singing
“Charlie Fell’s shrieks are as ear-piecing as ever, and the rest of Lord Mantis match them with a backdrop that’s at times equally punishing and at other times actually kinda pretty.” – Invisible Oranges
