The Sleeping Shaman
"The Longing For The Tides Of Metamorphosis is the debut album by David Fredriksson of Sweden under the moniker of Dysphorian Breed. It can be said that it contains your basic elements of funeral dirge metal, sludge metal, death metal, prog metal, etc. There’s elements of speed metal here also, bringing back recollections of Jag Panzer. I have to say, that Mr. Fredriksson does these all very well, very competently."
"Fans of keyboard-driven funereal doom will not find too many surprises here, but will be satisfied with the quality and patience of Dysphorian Breed’s debut. The songs do not quite reach the high pinnacles that they sometimes threaten to scale, but with a little more complexity and experience added to the mix, ‘The Longing For The Tides Of Metamorphosis’ could yet be the start of something great."
"This is a brilliant debut and that it is a solo recording makes this even more impressive."
"As début albums go this is an emotive and resonant expression of dark negativity and the power it can have to fuel the creative. An enjoyable ride through the desolate."
"Frederiksson is definitely on to something, and with a new album on the way for fall 2014, there’s plenty of dysphoria to look forward to."
The Metal Observer
"The Longing for the Tides of Metamorphosis is an exceptional debut. The programmed drums hold things from being truly ferocious during the faster portions, but the monolithic riffs and trudging atmospheres keep it firmly rooted in the realms of slow. Apparently not one to rest on his laurels, Fredriksson already has another full-length album scheduled to come out in November, titled The Rain of Ash. This is a solid debut that shows a band with tons of promise. Pay what you can at Bandcamp."
"Holy Funeral Doom, Batman. If you want to talk about heavy, this album has heaviness in spades, and it’s largely because of the bleak, suffocating atmosphere that permeates throughout its duration.Holy Funeral Doom, Batman.
