Roy This is modern post-rock at its best. Can`t wait for a full length record. I hope I will catch these guys live someday. Mmm... Did I read this somewhere already ? Favorite track: 10oz.

Jan-Dirk Platek This is modern post-rock at its best. The bass sound is so warm and deep! In combination with the sharp guitars and the stunning drums it sounds so huge and massive. The songwriting blows me away. Can`t wait for a full length record. I hope I will catch these guys live someday.

"With Lighteater’s debut EP Antique we get whacked with four of the finest instrumental tunes this decade. You're left wanting more yet, you are surprisingly satisfied with the New York four pieces’ first offering to the aural world." - Echoes And Dust

"Listening to Antique is the aural equivalent of floating along in a calming sea, only to be pummeled by an unexpected tidal wave. Realizing that may not be something you'd readily sign up to experience, in this case I'd suggest you wear your swim shorts and strap on a life vest, because this combination of grace and ferocity is a worthy endeavor." - Heavy Planet

"The band’s debut EP, Antique, is a strong and confident set of 4 tracks spanning some of the more traditional sides of post-metal with some lighter touches and unexpected turns. Opener ‘Tailhook’ and following track ’10oz’ are relatively sparse and dreamy tracks whose heavy reverb and mixture of melancholy melody with glimmers of sunnines... There’s an impressive amount of sonic territory that the band covers in the 30 minutes that make up Antique, and it more than deserves repeated listens in the process." - Heavy Blog Is Heavy

"Antique is an enthralling listen, taking you across multiple musical landscapes you’ll find yourself being suckered in and giving it multiple listens. On each listen you’ll notice different nuances that thrill and excite you as a listener." - Alt Dialog

"Their debut EP 'Antique' is a sonic journey that recreates warm atmospheres and melancholy moments… Managing perfectly to combine post-metal and post-rock, Antique is definitely an ideal listen for a rainy afternoon or road trip." - Like A Sound Day

"The music on this album is beautiful and very atmospheric. Undoubtedly this will please every single post-rock fan around the world... Lighteater succeeded in creating a perfect debut with an enchanting, almost magical sound. So it's no wonder this comes highly recommended." - Merchants Of Air

"The band experiments with a variety of genres, especially post rock and progressive. The opening track 'Tailhook' has an usual post rock beginning with slow and patient buildup and the tempo gradually increases with doom-esque guitars and drumming with heavy hands that gives the needful kick start to the EP. The second track '10oz' is a show stealer. It starts off on such a positive note with adorable delayed guitar strums and by halfway it makes a steady turn towards the dense post metal tunes that s equally depressing and mesmerizing. The subsequent tracks 'Quiver' and 'Flux' are amazing pieces of work with zany tempo changes and boisterous instrumentation." - Post-Rock Essentials
