"Where Metatron and crew strike gold, though, is during their hellish rendition of 'Die Hard'. The instrumentation pays homage to the original, thrashing about with reckless abandon...Sure, Venom covers are a dime a dozen, but The Wolves of Avalon bring a veritable who’s who of guest stars to push their version above and beyond a mere homage. Featuring guest spots by Rob Miller of Amebix, Mirai Kawashima of Sigh, Alan Averill of Primordial and none other than Mantas himself, this is a cover track that will be hard for any others to outdo." - The Metal Observer
