Rock / Hard Rock w/ Metal Edge
"I really cannot praise this album enough. ‘All I Can Be’ is sure
to cause earthquakes as it rumbles along, but if it’s surprises you’re
after then look no further than the closing cover of Toto’s 1982 classic ‘Africa’.
It’s clear that these guys can do no wrong and remain versatile within their
framework of weighty hard rock. I’m always sceptical when it comes to covers,
but Aug are able to adapt to the dynamics of the song. Vocally, “Aug”
is within himself until that booming chorus, and I’m then left rather flabbergasted.
I wasn’t expecting such a staggeringly brilliant composition. If you don’t
purchase this wonderfully fluid and orgasmic recording then it is your loss, believe
me." NEIL ARNOLD, METAL FORCES MAGAZINE UK
"There is a grave shortage
of good ol’ hard rock bands these days, but with this impressive album, AUG
might just be the call to arms for people seeking this type of music. The album
should, hopefully, enable AUG to break out of the New Jersey circle and make a more
widespread mark on the world of hard rock and heavy metal." Andrew Bansal,
METAL ASSAULT .COM
"AUG wastes no time at all
getting right into the thick of things with ‘Be Careful what you wish for’.
An exceptionally powerful guitar riff greets the listener, who, if uninitiated to
the powerhouse that is AUG, are as of yet unaware they will be tapping their foot
along a mere minute into the song… That is unless they’re alone and
have a penchant for air-guitar and/or head banging." Scott Alexander,
