"Proof positive that you don’t have to be from warm climes to ooze out quality sludge metal, the quartet fully indulges in their Mastodontic and Baron-ish tendencies as they set fire to everything in their path." - Decibel Magazine
"...the ability of Pyres to take control of the music and create a feeling of epic bliss through aggression. This album seems to get better and better after each listen as new bits and pieces of the intricate power of this album are realized which only increases the likability of this stellar release. Take my word for it; you will not be able to listen to this album only one time, I challenge you to try!" - Metal Bandcamp
"All that I do know is Year Of Sleep is simply a brilliant debut album that the band should rightly be proud of. Canada’s new breed of Sludge Metal Overlords are finally here!!! – Ignore them at your peril." - The Sludgelord
"Year Of Sleep is six songs in forty minutes, all balanced somewhere between low-slung rhythmic thickness and ascending swirls of dueling guitars. It's all here, dudes. Rub the murk on your gums or drift with the stoner sensibilities; surge and snarl or wail and wander." - Heavy Planet
