“a remarkable listen...There’s an unnerving magic and beauty that plays throughout their harsh noise, like a dense mist lifting off a still river....Through glowing stasis and solemn ceremony, Divide and Dissolve’s sonics of despair and destruction have been crafted into a remarkably life-affirming experience, and it’s never been more needed.” - 4 ★★★★ NME 

“Divide and Dissolve invest their dense and driven music with a unique perspective. These days, addressing race and gender in doom metal is considered extreme in itself; with Gas Lit the duo demonstrates that extremity is not just found through deftly executed blastbeats and downtuned riffs, but within the decision to create music that defies categorisation.” - The Wire

“Melbourne doom duo Divide and Dissolve fight for Black and Indigenous liberation using torrential noise “to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework.” Across the incendiary instrumental tracks of their third album, Gas Lit, guitarist Takiaya Reed and drummer Sylvie Nehill use sirening saxophones and blown-out drone metal to set systemic injustices ablaze.” - Pitchfork

"Takiaya Reed and Sylvie Nehill mostly let their effects-drenched guitar, saxophone and drums do the talking on this impressively ferocious debut via pulverising sludge-rock instrumentals like “Denial” and “Prove It.” - Uncut
