Echoes and Dust
Review - 21 January 2017
"The Angelus seem to have not only captured the mood of these times, they’re also walking it through the streets with a bell round its neck for everyone to see."

"Achingly gorgeous . . ."
Review - 2 June 2017
". . . the narrator is a kind of ontological itinerant, a pilgrim who moves through the bleakness of the world with his eyes fixed on the sun."
Divide and Conquer Music
Review 4/5 - 2 October 2017
". . . this darkness of language and the immense musical talents of this trio combine to make a record that is rather awe inspiring."
On A Dark & Barren Land
Review 6/10 - 13 February 2012
"We might be looking at the birth of a new genre here: dirge-rock?"
Review - 3 November 2011
"Few records conjure up such specific imagery as Denton act The Angelus do on their long-awaited debut album, On A Dark & Barren Land. Listening to it, you could swear that lead singer Emil Rapstine has lived his life alone on a desolate, rural landscape in the l800s."
w/Le Leek Electrique & Clint Niosi at Dan's Silvereaf - 9 July 2012
"Lead singer Emil Rapstine and drummer Justin Evans harmonized perfectly through songs like Turned To Stone and Screaming Bloody Murder."
w/Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra at Sons of Hermann Hall - 13 February 2012
"Dallas trio The Angelus played 45 minutes of hymnal slowcore. They were a wise fit, setting the tone for an evening where brevity would have cheapened the vibe."
The Angelus on Genesis, Whitney Houston and Slint - 25 July 2012
"The three members of The Angelus took time out and shared their embarrassing and non-embarrassing musical firsts."
