"The music is massively heavy and steeped in the shocking misery of shattered bodies and pervasive death, and it’s also explosively violent, with searing riffs and soaring leads that, together with blazing drumwork and wrenching voices, raise visions of the horrible grandeur and mortifying terror of such man-made conflagrations as the battle to which these songs allude. It will really get your head moving, too - and I’m glad that 1914 have also continued to insert excerpts from period songs, as they do at their previous album."

- No Clean Singing

"There’s nothing about “The Blind Leading the Blind” that doesn’t hit home wit1914 being the absolute perfect conductors of this train that takes us through every level of war one at a time. This is without a doubt one of the grandest albums we’re to get all year with everything from sheer presence to execution of concept put on at peak performance with this record, and there’s no question in my mind that “The Blind Leading the Blind” should be hailed as one of the greatest WWI themed metal albums ever put down!"

- Headbanger Reviews

"This stands out as a powerful and intelligent extreme metal record that I personally feel the world could use a little bit more of. It explores the themes of not just death and war, but offers an introspective look at culture, injustice, society, and all that good stuff. But, if nothing else, it’s a hard-hitting and refreshing take on extreme metal that is undoubtedly worth listening to… even if history is not one of your particular interests. Oh, and definitely listen to it LOUD."
