Orlando's GARGAMEL! is a band every fan of heavy music should see -- an amazing combination of ability and dark buffoonery that singlehandedly obliterates every cynical, negative connotation of the term local band. If you haven't yet caught this schizoid metal spectacle's live show, by all means, flog yourself, then go get in the car. It's marvelous. They mix styles as easily as they mix technique, humor, and showmanship." - Scott Harrell, St Pete FL Weekly Planet. "Gargamel! has their own vocal acrobat in the form of the maniacal Mandaddy. Imagine a zoo run by Frank Zappa with a monkey house built from Iron Maiden albums" - Conor Mitchell, Gainesville FL Sun. The band is a constant reader's pick for "Best Metal Act" (2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010) in the Orlando Weekly's "Best of Orlando" edition. GARGAMEL! has shared the stage with such nationally known artists as GWAR, Anthrax, Dog Fashion Disco, Tub Ring, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Genitorturers, Mushroomhead, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Nonpoint, Bad Acid Trip, Skindred, and Skeleton Key, to name a few.
