"Chapter II: Vulgo Gratissimus Auctor goes further – not only in confirming the potential of its predecessor, but in setting a course for progression in style and performance that makes these songs a joy to hear. There are a few that resonate better than others, but taken as a whole work, At Devil Dirt’s second offering is a rich collection that gives a lasting impression, and the span they cover proves that it’s not all about tone… even if there’s plenty of that to be had as well." JJ Koczan (The Obelisk)
"Each time I listen to this album I have a new list of four favorite tracks. Oh yeah, every song is a highlight.
You will come for the fuzz but you will stay for the melodic hooks."
Lucas Klaukien (Paranoid Hitsophrenic)
"all the above guide me to the conclusion that if “Chapter II” had one or two tracks less, we’d be speaking about this year’s top album (or one of the most serious candidates for 2012’s top five)" Maria Voutiriadou Metal Kaos)
"What is amazing of this band is how simple, basic, primitive, dirty, the sounds are, and how rich and solid they are as well and how deep they reach you down inside while they move via vibrations from your skin and from your belly to your brain cells. Only two people …"
Marilena Moroni (Doomantia)
"Chapter II" takes all the stuff I loved about that first release, the droning vocal harmonies, and the thick molten syrup-like fuzz guitar tone, and adds even more fuzz (if that's possible) and harmonic textures to the wall of sound, that is At Devil Dirt.
Adam Walsh (Ear Munchies)
"Long story short, At Devil Dirt is a band you ought to check out and be sure to give both their albums multiple listens 'cause each and every time will sound even more exciting. At Devil Dirt are a sincere, special band that for once more offered us one of the year's best releases."
Thanos Aronopoulos (Downtuned Magazine & Radio)
"The riffs are louder, heavier and better than ever. This album just blasts the other one into dust. At Devil Dirt have released an album that should cement their fame and reputation as one of South America’s best Stoner/Sludge Metal hopes."
Steve Howe (Sludgelord blog)
"I love that contrast between the deepness and melody of the vocals and the guitars which are very heady and crushing; even if this is different and doesn't exactly recover the same kind of textures, I feel this sounds a bit similar as the heaviest side of OM and even a few weedy SLEEPian overtones can be smelt here and there ! I honestly think these are just references, nothing too obvious and easy that you've heard ten times before, this is defenitley fresh, sincere and harmonious and makes it an agreeable surprise..."
Sthéphane Le Saux (Temple of Perdition)
"I was impressed that the album is full of fuzzy moments, and even more from the debut album, that here the guitar unleashes massive riffs mostly in slow tempo, but with several outbursts that shakes the soul of the listener" (welcome to the void)
"The slow, driven and impending doom remains an underlying factor that ties the whole record together throughout the duration. But the strange thing is the collaboration between that doom and the almost softly sang vocals. It's different and at first it does sort of catch you off guard." Jay Hooke (Ride with the devil)
"What is most impressive is this quick organic growth within the year since the debut, which was good but brash, now Chapter II steps it up in every area, At Devil Dirt have gotten even heavier. This is a great record coming from the South Americas and I hope these guys keep on getting better because I know there’s a classic in them. " Sean Thomas (The Soda Shop)
"Chilean fuzz monsters AT DEVIL DIRT have set August 31st as the release date for their self-produced sophomore full-length outing “Chapter II: Vulgo gratissimus auctor”. Using just one guitar, drums and vocals the South American duo offer an album that comprises of eleven doomy psychedelic rock songs."
"At Devil Dirt may be somewhat isolated in their location, but they are beyond doubt the caliber of band that should get label support to spread their music far beyond South America, and do some touring to let us witness the magic firsthand." A.S. Van Dorston (Fast ´n´Bulbuos)
