Here’s what critics are already saying about Black Rivers Flow:

LAZARUS A.D.’s Black Rivers Flow is meticulously perfect. The guitar solos are reminiscent of Slayer, the riffs remind me of Coroner, Atheist and Testament, and the precision of the guitar work brings to mind Metallica and Megadeth.” Altsounds.com

“This band is in no danger of suffering from a sophomore slump (the title track is especially wicked).” MetalSucks.net

“Grade-A modern American thrash metal.” Blabbermouth.net

“The album wraps up with the seven-minute ‘Eternal Vengeance’, which builds from a mellow vocal introduction reminiscent of James Hetfield’s (Metallica) somber moments to the crunching heaviness that defines the rest of the album. It too is a strong and, in a different way, expansive cut. LAZARUS A.D. have taken a big step forward with Black Rivers Flow and kept the killer instinct intact. No flash in the pan, this is a band to watch in 2011 and beyond.” Blabbermouth.net

LAZARUS A.D. gets a lot of things right on Black Rivers Flow, namely the classic thrash feel, the headbangability and the incorporation of a second, very different vocal presence. Just be careful listening to this while driving. This album might make you a little reckless. RIYL: Metallica, Lamb of God, Pantera, Five Finger Death Punch, Goatwhore.” TheNewReview.net
