3.5 greatMatthijs van der Lee | November 15th 09

Very solid progressive melodic death metal that has been influenced by many artists from the Scandinavian scene, especially Opeth. Stone's Reach gets on the repetitive side after the first two highlights Venator and From Scythe to Sceptre, but provides a necessary break with the short and acoustic Huks (there's your proof for the Opeth-influences), and closes off on a high note, with the truly worthy epic Countless Skies.

4.5 superbLouis Von G. | September 12th 13

Exquisite mix of lavish melodies and death growls, progressive metal and stunningly beautiful acoustic,
making of Be'lakor a remarkable artist of the melodic death metal scene, alongside scandinavian giants such
as Insomnium and Opeth. Stone's reach is truly a statuesque monument of the current metal scene...

4.0 excellentMaidenUFO | July 8th 13

Excellent record! One of the best new metal acts and maybe their best effort, combining melodic death metal with great atmosphere and progressive elements....All the songs are amazing here, but "Venator" and "Countless skies" are my favorites....

Its not to often u come across one one of those bands that hit u so much melodic emotion and yet be as progressive as these guys are. Alot of people are comparing these guys to Opeth which I agree as far as being progressive and structural ,but there ain't no comparison when it comes to a melody feel and sound. And thats why I give this album a classic rating and as far as Im concerned being a melodeath fan there has never been any think like this before. Yes I have other favs in that genre as well as such bands as Insomnium, Rapture,Zero Degree with others as well along with our founding fathers in this genre. But never in my opinion has there ever been a band as progressive but not to progressive and melodic with an incredible feel and sound as these guys have ever hit the scene. And not to mention there vocals along with the lyrics are superb as far as I'm concerned with lots of maturity in the lyrics, which is the same reason for being a fan of Insomnium, Rapture and Zero Degree. But the progression along with the sound and feel this this band is equipped with just took this genre to another level. Yes there are other melodeath bands that are equipped with progression and melody as well but not on the same level as far as sound and even structure that these guys have.

Amazing melodies and a huge variety of different moods. The last track is probably one of the best melodic death songs I have ever heard. The album in general is a joy for the senses.

5.0 classicSevenlee | June 2nd 11

At least a little reputation is usually required to receive perfect rating from me but Australian's Be'lakor have really put out an immense album at only their second attempt. I look forward to more from this band!

4.0 excellentKenneth E. Rathburn | April 18th 11

Very similar to Opeth without sounding unnatural or like a rehash, Be'lakor prove themselves as a band to keep an eye out for on Stone's Reach. It can become occasionally prolonged, but there's more than enough variety with concise form present. Any fans of progressive (death) metal are beyond encouraged to check the band out (especially this album).
