"On The Endless Howling Abyss Draghkar have produced one of the eeriest, most menacing takes on death metal in recent years." 9/10
- Metal Observer
"A violent and hard-charging affair that draws influence from early Greek black and death metal, as well as the likes of such other old-school progenitors as Molested and Mercyful Fate. The music on this outing displays a kind of wild, ecstatic savagery, with a feverishness that matches its cruelty."
- No Clean Singing
"These new songs see the band’s personality come through in their material even more, and the tracks here are more nuanced and textured than their predecessors. The band’s old-school-flavoured death metal is on better form than ever on this EP."
- Wonderbox Metal
"Old school grit and modern clarity. Fast scaling riffs and a 'start a riot' attitude. Draghkar shows some real skill."
- Metal Temple
"This is likeably vicious stuff. Sheer venom."
- The Independent Voice
"Rotten riffs and primitive death metal drumming. Much like Rotheads and Mutilate the strength and personality of Draghkar lies in their filthy sound and simpler compositions."
- Grizzly Butts
"They can give your ear Death / Doom songs that remind of Finnish bands, even Entombed at times, have touches of Death / Thrash that remind of Master and Death, and they combined it with a primitive idea of Heavy Metal mixed with the atmosphere of Black."
"If you like the Death Metal genre or looking for a new band or genre to get into, then I would recommend you go and check out Draghkar." 4.5/5
