"Interdimensional Invocations stands to easily be the best death-thrash record of the year."
- Metal Injection
"This album is an absolute trove of tech-death delights, the music blending effortlessly with the band’s themology and approach. It’s one of the juiciest fruits spawned by the genre this year."
- Invisible Oranges
"No filler or wasted riff. Interdimensional Invocations continues to spread their joyous gospel of sci-fi in an even stronger package."
- Last Rites
"Compelling and memorable. The melding of technical prowess and smart songwriting is a constant on the album."
- Toilet ov Hell
"Interdimensional Invocations is bursting at the seams with screaming leads and hooky melodies all over the place, constantly flying over the blast heavy necromancy underneath."
- Lair of the Bastard
"A cosmic cook-up of styles resulting in an appetizing galactic stew. An outstanding record preaching the pitfall of humanity."
"XOTH have developed, or better said polished and refined their sound. Fans of Tech-Death, but also of Black Metal… let’s just say Extreme Metal fans in general should give this album a spin or two and witness the cosmic terror rendered through Interdimensional Invocations."
- Blessed Altar Zine
"A very well crafted record that does everything right. Very much a worthwhile spin if you dig the technical sci-fi type death metal groups."
- Indy Metal Vault
"It’s the way that Xoth take a select pool of influences and use the true alchemy of excellent songcraft to turn what sounds like an elevator pitch for mediocrity into a deeply enjoyable, genuinely good album."
- Heavy Blog is Heavy
"Manic death / black metal that doesn't lack darkness and is played with incredible power! Massacre!"
- Deadly Storm
"The band embarks on a 40 minute journey of speedy dual guitars, lots of double bass and a great mixture of different voices which is one of their strongest trademarks."
- Merchants of Air
"Thrash, shred, prog, metal, heavy metal, black metal, death metal. An amalgamation to create a unique cosmic interpretation of space metal."
- Mosh Nerd Republic
"A perfect, slightly dirty, technically tuned death metal."
- Slovak Metal Army
Mixed by Joe Cincotta (Obituary, Suffocation), the group’s fourth overall release reveals a mature, otherworldly sound that is vaguely reminiscent of Death, Bal-Sagoth, and Emperor. Xoth appeals not only to the aficionado of complex time signatures, key changes and melodic composition, but also to the good ‘ol heavy metal enthusiast. Thematically, Xoth mixes themes including sci-fi, ancient mysteries, emerging catastrophes, and social commentary, lined with a layer of humor that is as magnetic as it is unsettling.
