All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
Cedarville, Ohio post-hardcore quintet Wolves at the Gate return with their second LP of crushing, aggro Christian metal. Following up their 2012 debut Captors, VxV pronounced Five by Five expands on their massive sound with tighter playing and a slightly glossier production treatment. Opening track "Wake Up" features a haunting, atmospheric, spoken word intro by Baptist preacher John Piper before launching into singer Nick Detty's first throaty chorus.

The push and pull between Detty's shredding screams and guitarist Steve Cobucci's smoother counter vocals colors many of the album's strongest tracks like "Dust to Dust" and "East to West." It's a strong sophomore set from this promising group.
