Words from reviews of previous Orion Rigel Dommisse records:
"What stories does Dommisse have left to tell? And how many people are going to die?" -Pitchfork
"Dommisse’s arcane songs mix phantasmal horror with a sense of the strangeness of Appalachian tradition and the gritty ghoul of Southern Gothic and English balladry." - Their Bated Breath
"The selection of instruments (cello, violin, harp, piano) gives these songs both a pastoral and chamber music feel. Taken together they could be a soundtrack to one of the original Brother’s Grimm tales. Yes it may seem charming and child-like at first then you realize how dark it is, how much blood there is." -Sepia Chord
"And, as the words reveal themselves, so do the dark tones beneath the playfulness, the dread-filled progressions, the funereal melodies. You realize everything is , in fact, oozing drama." -Baltimore City Paper
"Like the lyrical otherworlds of Tom Waits or Nick Cave, it's dizzying fun to listen to. Just pray you don't end up there." -Plug in Music
