…Every song on this album is a musical journey, it’s an adventure to make your way through the dense jungles crafted here in the sound world of Stelios Romaliadis but when you come out the other end you find yourself desperately curious to dive right back in. (Canticles of the Holy Scythe)” (Metal Injection)

“…There is an aura of arcane, including the esoteric and magic that penetrates the entire “Meadow Rituals” album. This effectively binds the general climate of stagnation, but also to the extreme expansion of sound and soul “ancient” music of the material…..” (OndaRock for Meadow Rituals)

“The exquisiteness of Romaliadis’s writing re-elaborates established aesthetics but escapes the cliché, obtaining the effect of a convincing malice. The intensity of “Canticles” also derives from its rare synthesis, thickening suggestions as in the chapters of an initiatic manual for alchemical rituals. From here you go into the painful city : take a seat..” (OndaRock for Canticles of the Holy Scythe)

“…High and low at the same time, cultured and popular, acoustic and electric, thoughtful and spontaneous, improvised and written, sumptuous and simple so as to make it difficult to determine character, Lüüp is a project of opposites attract as well, overlapping perspectives…” (RSI Radio, Switzerland)
