"Allegaeon seem to have mastered the art of holding back from too many indulgent displays of fret-melting wizardry, preferring to use their self-evident technical prowess sparingly and enhancing its impact as a result. When everything gels, Allegaeon sound like real contenders." Metal Hammer Magazine
"Their style and talent are producing some of the more technically appealing melodic death metal coming out of anywhere in the U.S." Hails & Horns Magazine
"Fragments of Form and Function has it all: memorable songs, brutal delivery, stone cold groove, and accomplished playing. It is a good bet that the critics will dub Fragments of Form and Function one of the best modern metal albums of the year." 9/10, Outburn Magazine
"This is, without a doubt, one of the best debut albums ever made. The first full-length effort from Allegaeon is a fluid blend of technical and melodic death metal that most first attempts can’t even touch. Even greater things seem inevitable from this band." idsnews.com
"Allegaeon deserves your immediate attention." PopMatters.com
"The vocals are comparable to Randy Blythe from Lamb of God, as well as some of the instrumental aspects. There are Dream Theater sections of solo after mind-blowing solo, and some parts reminiscent of Killswitch Engage. There is something about life, philosophy, and this world that can be learned just by listening, and that is not something we come by frequently." Blistering.com
"Normally I think fret-jumping riffs and sweeps are something that should be dialed back, but when the band have material like these to sink their teeth into, listening to them gnaw it down to the bone is often thrilling." MetalSucks.net
