AllMusic Review by

Three Humid Nights in the Cypress Trees, Bloodlet's triumphant return to the metalcore genre they once championed is an epic release that somehow finds the band elevating their animalistic brutality to unheard-of levels. Seething with blatant hostility, Bloodlet has outdone themselves at creating an album that is the epitome of "evilcore," leaving in its wake a senseless trail of destruction, most notably the listener's ravaged ears after hearing Three Humid Nights.... Vocalist Scott Angelacos drifts from restrained screams to quirky singing that draws from the legendary Mike Patton. The production quality is muddy and rough, yet while this proves to be a mild distraction, it also captures a side of Bloodlet yet to be heard. This gritty sound enhances the songs, making each seem much more dangerous. "Learn to Fly: Descent" brings to mind old Clutch, as it is similar in structure to the group's song "Binge and Purge," yet is definitely much fiercer in tone. All in all, Bloodlet has returned in a large way, possibly delivering their best album to date.
