“COUNTLESS SKIES elbow barge their way to the front of the quality queue on their second album, following-up a first-rate debut album (2016's "New Dawn") with a new batch of songs that seem to almost casually redefine melo-death as a bombastic, fervently widescreen endeavor.”
- Dom Lawson / Blabbermouth.net (8/10)
"Their stately, epic approach to the Gothenburg style on Glow helps Countless Skies stand out from the countless In Flames clones — it reminds me of Scale the Summit and Devin Townsend covering Dark Tranquillity. The progressive touches certainly work, but it’s the deeply emotional playing and grandiose riffs that really allow this to shine. Definitely check this one out."
“When you put all of these different parts together in the specific way that Countless Skies have done, you get something truly singular and special. … The epic tone and theme of Glow is maintained, but in so many different ways and approaches.”
- Heavy Blog is Heavy
“It’s impossible to deny that Countless Skies have finally done what I think we all knew they were capable of – they’ve proven, without a shadow of a doubt, that they can truly hold their own alongside some of the biggest and best in the business.”
- NO CLEAN SINGING
“Glow is a consistently pleasant listen from a band on a steady rise, further consolidating Countless Skies as an increasingly accomplished force, set to become a prominent powerhouse in the current melodeath landscape.”
- Angry Metal Guy
“If there is a better album in 2020, I’ve yet to hear it. But don’t take my word for it, take your own deep dive into this stunning release, and tell me I’m wrong. I’m confident you won’t be able to do so.”
- The Razor's Edge
"There are quite a few new(ish) melodic death metal bands that are leading the genre into the future, but I’m not sure if most of them are as adept as COUNTLESS SKIES. With Glow, they have discovered their sound and set themselves on an unstoppable path."
- Metal Temple (10/10)
"It's all you can do to sit back and soak up the emphatically stunning soundscape that is washing over you. An album that you simply must hear."
- Powerplay Rock and Metal Magazine (10/10)
"They erupted onto the metal scene in 2014 with their self-titled EP. Glow is the follow-up to 2016’s full-length debut, New Dawn, and takes the band’s progressive brand of Melodeath metal to a new level. There has been a lot more creativity put into these masterpieces, the results are positive."
- Ever Metal (10/10)
"It’s no surprise that Countless Skies are a great band, but this album should be the thing that turns them into superstars."
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life (10/10)
“Countless Skies have infused all the best aspects of Finnish Melo-death with a surfeit of their native British Prog to jaw-dropping effect upon Glow, and the end result is nothing short of mind-blowing.”
- Hated One Metal Reviews & Interviews (99/100)
"Glow manages to impress with its moments of melodic bliss that capture the listener throughout each track. Countless Skies has really spent some time polishing this stuff and making sure to up the stakes with each player in the band. This is an absolute must if you enjoy melodic death metal or progressive music in any way."

"Epic, aggressive, melancholic, brilliant!"
