“A masterclass in musical aggression.” – Metal-Temple (10/10)
“Between the Worlds of Life and Death is ambitious, extreme, uncompromising and, as an added treat, bursting with guest solos from some of death metal’s greatest and best. Quite the comeback.” – Blabbermouth
“Vale of Pnath are back to remind the world of their acerbic tone and razor-sharp attack!” – MetalSucks
“It’s great that Vale Of Pnath is finally back!” – Metal Injection
“A magnificent package that is certainly destined to be a highlight of technical death metal both in 2024 and the entire decade as a whole, as Vale of Pnath re-establishes their immensity and godlike presence at every given turn throughout this titanic performance.” – Head-Banger Reviews
“A blackened death metal extravaganza. On their new album, Vale of Pnath are vying for the modern extreme metal crown.” – Wonderbox Metal
“It is dark, heavy, and utterly evil. Do not sleep on this!” – Metal Epidemic (4/5)
“Vale of Pnath‘s terrifying cosmic atmosphere gives their complex Death Metal a much darker and more terrifying edge than other bands. Between The Worlds of Life and Death doesn’t forget to crush us from time to time, punctuating the album with impressive mastery.” –  Acta Infernalis (95/100)
“Not just a very good piece of modern black metal, but a great journey into a nasty world of bone-covered landscapes, ghouls and other beautiful ugliness.” – Metal-Only (9/10)
“A stellar release. It has been well and truly worth the wait.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“Vale can run the gamut from technical to atmospheric, and cinematic to crushing while maintaining cohesion and consistency, all in one song.” – Everything is Noise
“This is a seriously good album!” – The Devils Horns Blog
“Vale Of Pnath provides a very fine piece of work.” – Musika (96/100)
“Vale of Pnath have crafted a work that’s both a tribute to their roots and a bold step into new territories.” – Lots of Muzik
“Between The Worlds Of Life And Death should be explored as a lover of progged Black Metal, as well as as a friend of more technical death metal. Completely worth it!” – (8/10)

The band released the following statement concerning the new album:

“It’s been 5 years since our last release, Accursed. The EP really was a new avenue for the band as we leaned further toward a more blackened approach stylistically. Having more of a tech death background, this EP was a way to lead our fans into the next era. Between The Worlds of Life and Death is an album that really is just a continuation of what we started with Accursed. It captures the band’s core sound, but also brings a newer and bold take on this brand of metal. We want this to be the most approachable album we have made for metal fans. We want people to put this on and be sucked in immediately, yet keep coming back for more.”
