"There’s so much complexity to being human, and that’s why we need music that explores the shadow side; the covetous, depraved voices that plague all of us, and that the best of us try not to act on. Listening to the debut album from KEVERRA, I feel like they’ve put a razor-sharp blade to the wrists of humanity and are letting the evil bleed from our poisoned veins. This project features current and ex members of -16- and Goatsnake, and their self-titled debut album was recorded by none other than Sanford Parker. This is not an album for the weak. It cuts and crushes at the same time – hit play and let a wave of alluring filth wash over you…"
- CVLT NATION
"The Los Angeles-based trio have constructed a massive debut album of sophisticated, but hulking doomsday sludge. To capture the record’s true intensity, the trio went to with renowned Chicago producer Sanford Parker."
- Decibel Magazine
"‘Keverra’ (2020) is a simmering, seething cauldron of spite...the press clippings aren’t lying when they call this one “shockingly aggressive, heavy as balls, and vicious to the core. Upon first listen, I was reminded of the day I discovered Lord Mantis with the reveal of “Body Choke.” I was in awe. Both bands present a powerful, bombastic front, with Keverra’s deranged vocals also calling to mind Graves At Sea and the late, great Coffinworm."
- Doomed & Stoned
"The trio recorded their self-titled debut album with Chicago-based producer/engineer Sanford Parker (Mirrors for Psychic Warfare, Buried at Sea.) A master at capturing bands at their most visceral and raw form, this album is no exception! Shockingly aggressive, heavy as balls, and vicious to the core, KEVERRA are about to tear the world a new one and today you check out a brand track.."
"This is a superbly produced album that allows Keverra to play to their full potential and perhaps offer one of the bleakest and heaviest debut albums I’ve heard in some time."
- Outlaws of the Sun
"The drums are on absolute fire here, the guitars causing heart palpitations and the vocals horrifyingly twisted sounding. It’s got a ton of interesting rhythm while also being uncompromising in its heavy assault."
- Games, Brrraaains, & a Headbanging Life
"It is a dark record with music crawling in places where you don't expect it, like a robbing snake that concentrates its way through the caverns of your brain..." 8.5/10
- Arrows Lords of Metal
