Album Reviews:

Until The Light Takes You (9/10):

„[...] Little more than half an hour for this debut album of these Berliners to seduce you with a great mix of psychedelic rock, blues rock and stoner. Seven songs that pass like a breath in an album full of riffs, double guitar melodies playing at will in the different channels and above all a brutal groove of drums and bass with that retro sound that we like so much. But without a doubt, the prize goes to the voice of Alessandro Monte who is superb and sometimes it seems that you are listening to Magnus Pelander of Witchcraft and others to Robert Plant himself.

"Through The Grapevine" is a compendium of magnificent, varied and catchy tracks as is the case of "Mandala Lady" which opens the album and has a more psychedelic type cut or "Beethoven" which reminds us of that more classic and cheerful rock of the Rolling Stones. But they also have room for fuzz and that dirt that gives the grain of the desert as is the case of "Spider's Web" or "Domo" that even gets to play with doom in a cadent and hammering riff, and again Alessandro doing whatever he wants with his voice, either in the high tones or going to the mud. Domo is the longest track on the album and one of the best if not the best, a track that plays with that stoner/doom and an incredible riff that pierces you until the track breaks the dynamic to go back to where it started in memorable vocal and guitar melodies. [...]“ (translated)

Arte Metal (9/10):

„[...] Full-bodied and creative riffs, cohesive tempo changes and psychedelic moments are present in all seven tracks of the album. It's the typical band that knows how to assimilate influences and references, adding creativity to its own identity. It's worth checking out! [...]“ (translated)

KOBZR-Magazine (8/10):

"[...] Wer auf Hard Rock steht, wird wohl kaum an den BLACK MAGIC TREE vorbei kommen. Fette Gitarrenriffs, messerscharfe Soli, treibende Grooves, große Gesangslinien – BLACK MAGIC TREE wissen genau wie man einen geilen Rocksong schreibt. "Through The Grapevine" ist eine verdammt starke Hard-Rock-Platte geworden, die den perfekten Spagat zwischen traditionell und zeitgemäß hinlegt. [...]"

Soundmagnet Metalmagazin (8.5/10):

„[...] Die unterschiedlichen Ideen machen Through The Grapevine abwechslungsreich und kurzweilig. Die passende, angenehme Produktion rundet alles ab und hält es trotz der unterschiedlichen Stilelemente zusammen. Beim mehrmaligen Hören fallen immer wieder kleine Details und Ideen auf, die das Album spannend halten. Die Ideen sind auf Through The Grapevine breit gefächert und werden mit einer passenden Produktion und ansprechender Optik zusätzlich aufgewertet. [...]“

Outlaws Of The Sun:

"[...] The band show cool confidence and an almighty Stoner Rock swagger that embraces the wild and crazy times of 70s Blues Rock and Psychedelic Rock. Through The Grapevine is a well-produced record that covers the different eras of Classic Rock and Stoner Rock with superb effort and ultimately leaves the listener wanting more. This is a precise and exciting record for the band to release. [...]"
