“The trip through the album is demanding, but also deeply fascinating. At no time does the group attempt to stay safe and secure in the middle of the road. Constantly challenging, it approaches the edge as to test its own ability to straighten the carriage up. Which it manages to do.”

“Et flott kollektiv, som med «Lava» har laget en annerledes, original og fin plate!”

4,5 / 5 “The atmosphere on the album grows incredibly strong, whether sung with or without words. The power of expression of IKI’s singers is almost scary. (…) Sometimes, albeit rarely, the name of an album perfectly reflects its music. This time there is no doubt: IKI is pure Lava!”

*- – – – -* “(…) enten kan jeg kun give én – faktisk måske nul stjerner – eller også skal de nærmest have seks ud af fem, fordi de formår at give mig den RENE innovation. Den RENE ånd i musikken, og den ultimative vej fra tanke, tid & intuition, til en realitet i selv samme nu.”

***** “Jeg har efterhånden overværet en håndfuld optrædener med IKI og kan roligt sige, at hver eneste er absolut enestående og vidt forskellig fra de andre. Den ro med hvilken musikken får lov at udvikle sig, lignet intet andet. Her er det musik på musikkens betingelser.”

“IKI is exactly the kind of artist we like to present, a band that breaks boundaries and challenges both itself and the audience. This is one of the most unique musical experiences I have ever heard!”
