"Fire to Fields play Sludge. No doubt about this, but their very own brand of Sludge. Where most US bands drown their sorrow in cheap whiskey and heroin, Russia’s national treasure, vodka - and probably some kind of weird local 'shrooms - seem to produce some strange unexpected effects in one’s music. Who dies in Siberian slush, you may ask… I guess songwriting died in Novosibirsk…" – by Frederic Cerfvol at "Doom-metal.com" (Belgium)
"The best extreme sludge should be fundamentally unpleasant on the ear, and Fire to Fields are almost entirely amelodic... If the most extreme forms of sludge are going to come from anywhere, why shouldn’t it be a place that drops to -20F and snows all the time? As much as sludge in the US is associated with swamps and humidity, Fire to Fields make it work for the frozen ground of their Trans-Siberian Railway route home as well. Whatever these guys might have planned in terms of future recordings or maybe playing up some of the weirdness that seems to be bubbling under the surface of their tense, blinding extremity, their debut serves to reinforce the notion that no place on this planet is safe from the rigors of riff, and that sometimes the best answer to brutality is brutality itself." – by H.p. Taskmaster at "The Obelisk" (USA)
