“Best Punk/Metal Band of 2013”

North Bay Bohemian

“Presented in seven "chapters," Eye to I is a progressively minded metal saga. If Queensryche had made Operation: Mindcrime in 2013 instead of 1988, it still wouldn't approach the ambitions contained here. With an average length of around eight minutes, each chapter vacillates between calm and storm, giving vocalist Bart Tramer a workout in expressive range over the band's lock-tight riffs and effects-laden atmosphere. Behind the boards for the recording is legendary engineer and producer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Sleep, Melvins), so this ain't no Garageband mp3—the mix is as strong as Atticus Finch's courtroom resolve. The final chapter, "Enter the House of I," is 15 minutes of all-over-the-place adventure featuring some of the most dizzying work ever laid down by guitarist Eddie Rogers; it closes a record that's weirdly perfect for Sunday morning.”
