CVI has garnered a great deal of praise with Spin calling the ten-track release “a stunning breakthrough and NPR saying the album “not only builds on the promise of a great EP, but it’s also a portrait of songs that have been painstakingly lived in.” Revolver said CVI is “essential” and described the band’s offering as “a thick rock hurricane that spins soaring melodies and searing heaviness in almost every direction.” Decibel featured the album as their June 2012 lead review describing the release “as magnificently compelling rock music that’s anything but by-the-numbers” and Outburn saying the band is a “standout amongst their peers.” The album is currently streaming in its entirety at www.royalthunder.bandcamp.
