"This is the bay area thrash I grew up with, and it seems to be making a come back. So get a backing band together because you have it going on! Your solos remind me of early Kirk Hammett when it was real and from the heart (Exodus/Metallica)"
“I have seen the future of METAL and POWERAXIUM is the name!!"”
“Outstanding songs man. This world needs real musicians. Keep rockin hard \m/"”
“Damn great sound! Reminds me a lot of old school Metallica and Megadeth. Freakin amazing!!"”
"i dig the harmonies and riffs on martial law. but inquistion is my fav track. i dig the megadeth feel of the first riffs. but you bring an original take on it and a true heavymetal feel. looking forward to hearing more in the future keep thrashing"
"Great stuff Sam, Martial Law & Inquistion are very powerful. I think you've found your calling."
"I personally love it when an artist wears his influences like a badge of honor. I can hear the influence of Metallica on your playing loud and clear - from your rhythmic Master of Puppets era Hetfield picking to almost channeling Hammett in the style, form, and structure of your solos. That said, what you've written here should not be classed with the thousands and thousands of Metallica clones out there. There is more to "Martial Law" than that. I hear just enough modern sound to honor your influences while creating something new."
"Talk about high energy! Sounds like Poweraxium said "hi energy, were Poweraxium, let's rock"! Cool"
"Right on! You have a great talent, keep it up! Nicely put together! If you lived around here, I would ask you to join us. Your guitar work is Metal and I love it!"
"Hey Sam, We really liked the song! Lots of Progression and power! Love the use of time signature changes and the textures in the instruments and layering. Sounds the way i think driving a Porsche down a winding country road at a 100 miles per hour would feel! "
"Love the guitar work and your old school energy. Keep jammin you rock"
"Good shit man!!! Reminded me of old school Metallica only BETTER!! Keep up the good work!! Much respect -"
"Great guitar riffs and more of an old school metal sound.. ie megadeath, Randy Rhoads style."
"top notch, dynamic, sonic complexity"
"Phenomenal writing. Great atmosphere throughout your work. Diggin them a lot. Keep me up to date with new tracks for sure."
"Powerful awesome sound!! Great guitar!!"
"Truly like what your doing...you have great energy. Ur passion comes thu your axe."
"Awesome music, great guitar work reminds me of a mix megadeath, slayer and metallica."
"Wow! And I don't say that OFTEN!"
"Sam, "Martial Law" is frickin' excellent, your guitar licks kick @SS, it's got a killer Dave Mustaine vibe to it!...\m/.."
"Nice metal guitars, cant find a lot of that these days."
"Your stuff is great, your fast guitars amazing"
"Great guitar work !!!!!"
"Excellent guitar playing Sam! Love your style!"
“You've got a killer right hand and write great arrangements. I look forward to hearing more of your stuff, and hope you find some guys who are on your level of musicianship and commitment soon.”
"Old school. Good stuff. I'm hearing definite Megadeth influences in there. Great guitar work!"
"Serious chops...You really are amazing!"
"You are so awesome! Cant wait to catch your next gig!"
"Your set was awesome the other night. Good luck I hope you find some bandmates that can keep up!"
