Critical praise for Molten Giant –
“…a tactically aggressive tech-death masterwork both respective of the style’s tenets but challengingly deviant…there’s a dense feeling of effortlessness — something almost machine-like, but far too creative to be computerized — plus deft touches of pure, raw fun.” – Invisible Oranges
“Molten Giant is nothing if not consistently impressive at all times.” – Metal Injection
“THE best death metal record of 2018. Period. There’s nothing I’ve heard this year so far that tops the pristine mix of composition, technicality. and overwhelming bestial brutality on display on this album.” – No Clean Singing
“There is not a moment of dead time. Exocrine keep to what they do best and leave anything superfluous on the cutting room floor. Compositions are incredibly complex and brimming with impressive technical performances, and never at the sacrifice of engagement and flow.” – Metal Trenches
“Sure to bring out the tech-death fans in droves” – Dead Rhetoric
“Mixing passion and precision, the album avoids falling into the trap of sterility that has ensnared some modern technical death metal releases, using the requisite technicality of its members tastefully whilst making songs accessible and having plenty of groove.” – PureGrainAudio
“Exocrine are one of the newer bands that will help carry the flag of tech-death to its next phase.” – Skulls n’ Bones
