2. Old Disgruntled Bastard
Review by Devdutt Nawalkar

"It is this compositional coherence and clarity of purpose in the overall context that sets Solar Deity apart in the Indian scene; the ability to unravel the germ of an idea and see it through till fruition is painfully rare and needs to be applauded wherever found."

4. Eight Octaves (4.5/5)
Review by Varun Khatri 
"With ‘Devil Worship’, the band has certainly reached a higher level of ascendancy, leaving absolute quality material for us to listen and head bang on. For those for you who want to hear it like this: yes, it better than their previous releases! Now go f*cking get it!."

5. The Heavy Metal Saloon (81/100)
Review by John Cheetham 
"I've listened to it pretty regularly since happening across it and have no doubt I will remember it come year's end. "
Review by Dallas Luckey
"Overall I thought the record was a very strong release with a lot of solid instrumental work. There are no gimmicky overdubbed guitars or abuse of guitar sweeps here. Its a simple, clean cut, to the point type of record and I for one respect the hell out of Solar Deity for doing what they do best. "

7. Eternal Abhorrence
Review by Hassan Umer Amin
“Devil Worship is a fine piece of modern day black metal and is undeniably infectious. It stays true to the roots of the genre by making sure you can’t spend a single moment without banging your head and raising the horns. "

8. The Broken Metronome (9/10)
Review by Bhavika Tekwani
"Devil Worship is definitely a great piece of work. At no point in its 25 minute run does it seem mechanical or half-assed and for black metal records these days, let alone black metal acts in India, it’s a hard thing to pull off."

9. Extreminal Webzine (8/10)
Review by Zivon Gurung
"Devil Worship can be considered a well produced and yet another impressive offering by Solar Deity and with this their musical trajectory continues to cause havoc and enthrallment at the same time."
