French people from Kaosguards on "A Key to Panngrieb":
Zitat
ESOTERIC child (which also contains a title, "Beneath This Face" convincingly), this group practice a Funeral Doom very distinct in its statement, totally desperate, requiring slow and devoid of compromise. NARROW HOUSE is not intended to upset the rules fairly limited in this sub-genre: ultra slow tempo, towering riffs, mammoth and rhythmic throat singing.
Not a big review though. Full version is here, French language inside.

The country of Netherlands represented by "Brutalism" web zine had an emotional breakdown during the listening of our album:
Zitat
The fourth and final track on this release, 'Behind the Mask This' is a great finale. By this point in the CD, I had broken down into tears twice because it was such an emotional roller coaster of sound.
Read the full version here. Thank god they don't use Dutch to write their reviews.

Meanwhile, we've got some words from UK website "Ave Noctum":
Zitat
On their own terms, Narrow House are the most accomplished new funeral doom band that I have heard in some time: They use the cello and keyboards beautifully to ease the flow from chord to chord in the riff, and the vocals have a fine tone to them.
Full version can be found here.

Another review from Netherlands has emerged. This time we have a word from the "Lords of Metal" e-zine:
Zitat
Solitude Productions once again crosses our path with a mighty fine funeral doom album, this time from Ukraine. When looking at the cover of Narrow House’s ‘A Key To Panngrieb’ I am sure funeral doom is not something that will spring to mind. Pure funeral doom is really isn’t. It’s more psychedelic funeral doom such as we know it from bands such as Esoteric and Faal and in the quieter almost ambient passages of Shape Of Despair.
Full version can be found here.

The new review is up, this time from "Doommantia":
Zitat
The album is big, open and spacious like the musicians are not even playing in the same country, let alone the same studio. There are huge gaps in every guitar strike, cymbal and drum hit which makes this seem much slower than what is actually is. They bleed out their music so listening to this is like being strangled to death very very slowly which is a killer hook and perfect for a funeral doom exercise.
The full version can be found here. Surprisingly detailed review. The guy who wrote it had a heart attack some time ago and he is short on money, so if anyone here feels like supporting the fellow doom metal fan (he is actually an owner of that website), throw some bucks to his PayPal.

So, what do we have next... Uh, yes, the review from Hungarian webzine "Femforgacs". Can't point out a bit for the quote, as this review is written in Hungarian (yeah, seriously) and it seems that Google Translate can't handle it in full scale. So here is the direct googletranslated link.

Well, apparently we have a new review from USA. "Forbidden Magazine" about "A Key to Panngrieb":
Zitat
It’s virtually flawless in structure, flow, composition, delivery, and production. Narrow House create such a gravitational force with their combination of suffocating heaviness, dreary phantom atmosphere, and solemn melodies that it’s damn near impossible to escape it’s pull into the abyss.
The full version can be found  here.

Another non-translatable review, this time from Lithuanian "Hell Music". I'm sure you will be amused with the googletranslated version which can be found here.

Some words from Portuguese "Temple of Doom Metal" (googletranslated bit):
Zitat
During these 45 minutes of funereal exile, the 'Russian school', let us say, comes in good shape, four themes touched very competent, well-structured, with a good balance between the keys and guitars and a well that throaty voice, sparsely, alternating with a clear tone and lean a little to the tortuous.

The full version can be found here. Thankfully, the English translation makes sense.

Good news for European doom fans - this online-shop based in Czech Republic sells some copies of "A Key to Panngrieb" now. You might be more comfortable ordering it from there.

Found a new review from French "Pavillon 666". Google wasn't that great to translate it properly, but here's a bit anyway:
Zitat
A very successful album that will delight fans of the genre and can be a good approach for those who do not yet know the genre.
