“When it comes to music I really like being positively surprised and Rampart’s debut album couldn’t have surprised me more. First of all, the band is from Bulgaria and I bet 99% of you have never heard of any Bulgarian metal bands. Secondly, they are fronted by a female singer who actually sings the metal way and does not wail like all the boring gothic princesses who all sound the same. The last surprising thing is that the band managed to create a style of their own despite the fact that you can hear strong echoes of Running Wild and early Helloween.

“Bulgaria...you made it for me! Rampart lives in different worlds. In the glorious 80's (mainly the German metal bands), also in a world of original ideas and they don't forget to tell the people where they come from and bring the folk elements of their home into the music.
The Metal Fields Webzine (Germany)
“Released on a French label, sounding like a classic early 1980s NWOBHM band, but actually the band RAMPART is coming out of Bulgaria. They have a very strong female vocalist called MARIA D. S. and the band’s first CD sounds very impressive. Not only production and sound quality are top-notch, the included material is of a very high level, exactly the way quality real Heavy Metal should sound like. This band is definitely worth checking out.
Strutter'zine (The Netherlands)
“The voice of Maria D.S. is in the vein of Kai Hansen and she does it outstanding! I’ve heard enough elements to say that Rampart is a very promising band.
Metal to Infinity Webzine (Belgium)
“RAMPART hails from Bulgaria. And if you think, that they can’t play heavy metal over there, then you’d better reconsider. We are treated on forty-five minutes of old school heavy metal. I suggest that every old school metal fan should buy a copy of this wonderful album or else.
Metal Maidens Webzine (The Netherlands)
“While remaining in the Class Underground, RAMPART shows a big potential and I guess the band within two or three years with a major production.
Metal Integral Webzine (France)
“Rampart is an interesting encounter, and I'm sure that they'll within a couple of releases, will move into the European super league of heavy metal, as they have the songwriting skills, the guitars, the melodies and ideas to kick some serious ass, around the bigger and more established names within the scene!
Corazine Webzine (Denmark)
“Rampart carry a pure soul. They sound like they have fire for metal music burning in their hearts. I believe Rampart are making Bulgarian metal music history.
