PRESS

"plays symphonic metal with all the conviction of a veteran band. This is a positive step in the right direction for this young Chicago band."  Review by Tony Cannella, Solarsphere - "Demo" (2011)

"Now it was time for fully amped metal! They kicked off the show with heavy guitar-riffs accompanied by keyboards in the background. Then they revealed their true genre: symphonic metal. The operatic style vocals brought a nice contrast to the music. They played a good variety of songs, many with prominent melodic sections, others that were quite heavy."  Joel Beverley-The Happy Headbanger, Friday, August 26, 2011 DAME NATION 2011 (Concert review from July 29th, 2011)

"The three tracks this band does have for us show the makings of a strong band. Lush keyboards and ethereal vocals float over a bed of heavy guitar work and pounding drums, creating a bit of an otherworldly atmosphere....”"  Max Levites, Check it Out: Solarsphere
