“Overall reminding me of both Baring Teeth and Imperial Triumphant, but crossbred together into one bizarre forward-thinking force… Urraca never feels like a mindless derivative experience without anything fresh brought to the table of their own.” – Metal Injection
“…a Gorguts-ian psychedelic death metal trip that will impress with their technical proficiency as much as their ability to craft attention-grabbing and captivating songs… Even at their most dissonant, everything locks together nicely without any one thing sounding like it’s dripping with sonic highlighter.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“…SUNLESS are one of the best bands to come into the scene, and Urraca is a monstrous debut. They feel new and fresh in spite of their obvious influences, which is more than can be said for many other bands out there. So why should you care about SUNLESS? Because they fucking crush the competition. 5/5″ – Toilet Ov Hell
“…SUNLESS delivers a crumbling, discordant take on death metal akin to all the bands mentioned above, and does it rather well.” – Teeth Of The Divine
“SUNLESS have reignited my passion for strange, experimental and abstract extreme metal with a confident and frequently engaging album. Consistently very good and occasionally great, Urraca is an accomplished debut that demands your time and attention to unlock the myriad of intricacies hidden within the jolting barrage. It’s by no means a comfortable listen, but the rewards are well worth the extra effort.” – Angry Metal Guy
There’s a definite expansiveness to their playing, and all of the instruments gel so seamlessly into this captivating blend of hellish sounds that it’s hard not to be drawn in.” – Echoes And Dust
“This is not facile or easily discarded music at all. There’s also much more of an emotive edge here than is the norm for this kind of thing, with light and shade being used well to enhance this approach where appropriate.” – Wonderbox Metal
“…these songs are tight and eminently listenable while still being technically and rhythmically complex.” – Indy Metal Vault
"Urraca makes for a praise worthy debut from technical geniuses SUNLESS. If you feed off monstrous and brilliant compositions, then you will be sold upon the band’s first track. ...SUNLESS deliver upon an album with terrific band chemistry, absolutely devastating instrumentation, and a unique spin with each song." – New Noise Magazine
