Metal Injection

It’s truly amazing to see how far this band has come over the years, sonically, visually, and musically. If Children Of The Night was the awakening for Tribulation, Down Below is the album that will see the band take over the world, one victim at a time.

Metal Sucks

Down Below ... is the metal album to beat in 2018.

A.V. Club
The title and lyrics suggest an inferno worthy of Dante, but music this simultaneously hooky and heavy could only have been concocted north of hell.

Exclaim!

Save somewhat of a flat end, Down Below is a great metal album that blends multiple genres into a perfectly idiosyncratic sound that should bring Tribulation much success and attention. Overall, the album could stand to take a few more risks, but for now that is something we can look forward in Tribulation's future.

Pitchfork

Down Below is incredibly athletic and fun, with every guitar solo, lyrical twist and musical turnaround delivered in boldface italics.

It remains to be seen whether Down Below will have significant replay value but everything sounds so meticulously crafted that each listen results in a different highlight. Everything that Tribulation seem to have lost in aggression, they have gained in haunting atmosphere and hooks.

Consequence of Sound
Tribulation has found a fine balance, setting the primordial muck of their blackened roots up into a much soupier pool of influences and musical ideas.

The Needle Drop

Tribulation comes through with a pretty solid gothic metal album that you'll want to light your candelabra to.

I don't generally listen to this style of music, and this album isn't necessarily too unique compared to other artists within the genre. Pretty middle of the road fair, with some decent melodic metal throughout.

Favorite track: The Lament

This album has some of the best instrumental work I have heard all year but the only thing that is holding it back is the vocals. The way the singer sounds like he has something stuck in the back of his through the hole time could be seen as a good thing that would add to the gothic feel this album has but instead it just comes off as funny to me and it sometimes runes would could be an amazing album.
