AllMusic Review by

Hiwattrauma plays the indie-rock soft-then-loud game, practically inviting Slint comparisons -- something about the band's metal orientation, however, keeps this approach from seeming as effective or intellectually appealing as it does in an indie-rock context. While the record's sense of dynamics is well-executed, it's also somewhat played out, and neither its guitar composition or heavy-metal drama are distinguished enough to make Stellar Dweller stand out from the masses.
