"I think that this is the best effort by Space Mirrors so far, so just check it out if you dig progressive, spacey and a little psychedelic metal like Arjen Lucassen." © DJ Astro of Psychotropic Zone
"Both the fine songwriting and musicianship of Space Mirrors really shine here, and I definitely recommend it."  © metalreviews.com
@ Disagreement (9/10): "One year after their last album In Darkness They Whisper, which was the first in the band’s Cosmic Horror series inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, Space Mirrors continue in that same vein, relying more on concise songwriting than on instrumental meanderings as was sometimes the case in the past. ...Space Mirrors are mostly a space rock band, of course, but elements of progressive rock, gothic and doom metal are also an integral part of the mix. The collective can be dark and gloomy, but isn’t afraid to sound far out trippy and sometimes even catchy or in rare moments pastoral. It speaks for the musicians that the final result still sounds astonishingly homogenous." http://www.disagreement.net/reviews/spacemirrors_theothergods.html

The new Space Mirrors album "The Other Gods" is the second in the "Cosmic Horror" series (and 5th in the band's discography) inspired by the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. It is a wonderful blend of dynamic space rock, prog metal and classic hard rock with influences not only from Hawkwind but also Blue Öyster Cult, Eloy and Black Sabbath! "The Other Gods" shows a further development in terms of sound and musicians' line-up with the recruitment of Claudio Tirincanti (Blaze Bayley, Tim "Ripper" Owens, etc.) to play all drums and Gabriel Monticello (Spaceseed, Albany Symphony Orchestra, etc.) to play bass on all songs. Sparky Simmons (Acid FM) recorded most of the guitars and Fabio Bartolini (Hate Profile) played guitars on one song. Martyr Lucifer delivered his best vocals’ performance to date. Bless (Hortus Animae) recorded some wonderful piano. Cyndee Lee Rule provided a violin string section and Dr. James Hodkinson (Shadowlight, Pre-Med) played mellotron and moog. The legendary Nik Turner (Hawkwind’s co-founder, Space Ritual, etc.) once more recorded sax and flute. Everything was done under the coordination of keyboardist Alisa Coral, the creator of Space Mirrors. Artwork and 12-page booklet were again created by Kevin Sommers. Space Mirrors again confirmed its international status by having in its ranks musicians from Italy, USA, UK and Russia!  

Alisa Coral about this record: "I think we have been able to successfully mix progressive space rock with classic hard rock in a modern suit here. We've got a very strong rhythm section with the same musicians playing on all the songs this time. Every musician gave it all to the recording and Martyr Lucifer really shows the great range of his voice. There is no programming and no triggered drums. Just old school real drumming, heavy riffs, hot leads, sax, flute, symphonic keyboards, spacey synth and vocals - all combined very nicely on this album."
