"Australian death metal quintet Descent are skilled at crafting dark, oppressive death metal. With Towers of Grandiosity, their debut full-length, the Australians drop a slab of aggression defined by furious blast beats, thick layers of distortion and buzzsaw riffs. At its finest moments, Towers of Grandiosity balances HM2-distorted death metal with gloomy melodies and a sense of bleak ugliness.."
- Decibel Magazine

" This track [Skinwalker} is absolutely explosive. While Descent‘s music pulls from across a spectrum that ranges from death metal to grind to hardcore punk, and will likely appeal to fans of Dismember, Black Breath, and Nails, this particular track is simply an overpowering assault on the senses, one that kicks the adrenaline into overdrive from the first second.
It has that mauling, chainsawing guitar tone that brings to mind old Swedish death metal; a big bone-quaking bass pulse; a mix of blindingly savage, range-spanning vocals; some truly attention-grabbing drumwork; and the kind of rampant, full-throttle energy that could drive the powergrid of a large metropolis."
- No Clean Singing

"The sometimes downright frantic sound that they deliver on Towers of Grandiosity is definitely enough to impress, as they lean into lethal doses of grind on “Skinwalker” and “Hindsight,” and the raw energy is palpable. The often blasting beats (and d-beats) are an adrenaline rush of the highest order – just listen to “Fountains of Sand” and not get sucked into the abyss."
- Dead Rhetoric

"Towers of Grandiosity does not like you, does not like your grandmother, and does not like the sweet card she sent you for your birthday. The most notable, immediate ingredient of the record is old school Swedeath of the Dismember style, both in terms of riffs and that chewy guitar tone, with the occasional mid-paced minimalist charge more in line with Bolt Thrower. Also prevalent, however, is that punk nastiness, mostly delivered through a heap of d-beat riffs and rhythms. Some of the album’s best moments are when it blurs the lines between the two sounds, such as how “Skinwalker” rapidly switches back and forth between tremolo death metal riffs and full on Discharge drive. "
