"SHADOW CORPS[e] represents an exciting new step for a band that's always on the move. From the deliciously horrifying 'Shirogane Bara Kitan' to the dramatic instrumental stylings of 'ancient moonlit battleground', SHADOW CORPS[e] is a masterclass in how to create a unique sound without alienating long-time listeners." - JaME
"SHADOW CORPS[e] is undeniably epic, starting from the monster riffs in opening tracks 'D Chronicle' and 'Yami-iro Corsage' (from the upcoming game Valiant Knights) driving through the to the relentless force of the title track 'Shadow Corps'." - JRock247
"…there is no denying the power of the music...listeners with an ear for metal will find a great album in SHADOW CORPS[e]." - Femme Metal Webzine
