Zware Metalen, written by Ramon van der Heijden, 90/100
"With this debut Fire Down Below deliver a rare gem in the stoner rock genre. What a great new promising band for the Benelux and all of Europe! [...] With great respect for their predecessors they succeed in making their own mark on the genre."

The Metal Nexus, written by Dragon
"Chock full of ambience-inducing depth and massively monstrous pedal-driven guitar pyrotechnics, The Mammoth serves as the ideal aural mission statement for what Fire Down Below are all about: controlled sonic chaos and absolutely stunning executions of adrenalized excitement. “Viper Vixen Goddess Saint” will easily find placement on several Best Of 2016 year-end lists and much deservedly so for this is an ideally stand-alone opus."

Doomspeakers review, written by Will
"Fire Down Below have all the ingredients for a proper desert brew. Don’t let anyone ever tell you there aren’t any deserts in Belgium. It just can’t be true – not when bands like Fire Down Below are producing albums like Viper Vixen Goddess Saint. There’s deserts. There’s guitars. There’s peyote too."
