Like its predecessor, The Well of Despair, "A Web of Sorrow" was generally well received. Metalix continued its praise of the band:

"In their two year absence Nuadhán have been working on their follow-up to 1993's The Well of Despair. A Web of Sorrow shows a more evolved sound, but never compromises Nuadhán's unique Celt doom. The inclusion of panpipes on two of the songs is never felt as too much, and both Brian and Gábriel's vocals are excellent as usual, as is the entire band. Stand out tracks include opener Turned To Ash, which most likely references to the grim cover art, and My Tears Run Deep, which Gábriel's vocals echo around Brian's guttural growls. Another potent and top release from Nuadhán, Irish doom masters".
