Tempest Rising / Press

“Demonstrating a large range of vocal talent, beginning with pitch perfect clean vocals and shifting into deep growls, Tempest Rising gave the room a taste of the high energy, numetal and metalcore lovechild...The crowd lapped it up, with punters getting rowdy as the band continued to spur on the rambunctious revellers into a feeding frenzy of good-natured yet spirited shoving, moshing and of course "milling". The "groovy as fuck" song, Curb Stomp kept the energy up with the lead singer jumping off stage to scream lyrics into the faces of a select few.”

Liana Kelly - X-press Magazine

“I feel this EP showcase that the band is extremely talented in their songwriting...... The vocals of Vin Trikeriotis immediately stand out showcasing the different ranges and styles that he can pull off.......This band is set out to write anthems with every track on the EP having an epic chorus mixed with sick breakdowns.....”

“With great vocals that range from a falsetto to the deepest of growls, and an amazing stage presence, Tempest really lived up to their name. The fans whip themselves into a crazy mosh pit, and a wall of death, this is the wildest crowd i have seen at a local gig for a long time. This band of misfits get an amazing sonic wall going, all the while having a natter with the audience.”

“At a gig over the weekend I was witness to one of the most violent and crazy mosh pits I have ever seen. You know, the kind of pit that scares that scares the living piss out of the average Joe. Suddenly a little guy goes down, splats right out in the middle of the floor. It’s a bad situation, we have all heard the stories. Those in the area stop and swoop in, pull him up, get him on his feet with a pat on the back and it’s all back on.”

“Tempest Rising bring about a certain gifted approach with their writing when it comes to musical dynamics . An element that been lacking or has simply been abandoned since the trendy click of the “core nation” mentality to music has taken the world by storm. Infusing post-grunge ballad sensibility to their chorus structures with an almost “riffology” of early metalcore (circa In Flames/Killswitch) that pays homage to their forebears and you’ve got their style down pat.”
