The Approach and The Execution / Press

“With all the new ‘modern’ Metal coming out these days, it is really hard to find bands that are actually doing something to improve things rather than copy everybody else. The Approach & the Execution does a great job in mixing a bit of everything and somewhat creating a familiar sound that will appeal fans from all areas of Metal and can be commercialized in the current ‘trendy’ Metal markets and maybe in some underground ones as well.In general, TA&TE has managed to release an excellent album that should set the standard for many bands that don’t even have 10% of the talent of this band and yet they have a recording deal. While there are plenty of modern Metal elements that might be rejected by Metal ‘traditionalists’, the band surely makes up for them with intelligent songwriting and brilliant execution. Any Metal fan should respect this band for their talent and creativity, so be sure to pick up a copy of this excellent release and keep an eye out for this band.”

“The Approach and The Execution are on a non-stop drive of success. Their new album, The Blood March, is like medieval power metal, so it's in it's own category. The lyrics and music, while very diverse,... blend so well that you can't stop listening as they create a unique story that is engaging and powerful. Whether you're inspired to jump in the pit or just stand and watch in awe, TAATE are going no where but up and they'll take you along on their journey as long as you are ready for it. To thee, I salute!”

““Raw power, passion, risk and skill are the deadly success components for an exciting live show with no compromises. This band packs the punch to deliver an impressive live show beyond expectation.” ”

"...the mainstream music media would lead you to believe that our metal community is as tired as our sports teams. Nothing could be further from the truth my friends! The Approach & The Execution hail from Akron, Ohio and already attempting to orchestrate a takeover over of the prog/metalcore/power/thrash genre these five guys (and one gal) have put out a very accomplished album in The Blood March. Rest assured boys and girls this isn't some "Dance party USA teeny bopper type of shit" lyrics either. I wouldn't even begin to know how to describe a band that is equal parts Killswitch Engage, Megadeth, Dragonforce, Coheed and Cambria and Iron Maiden. All I know is that I haven't obsessed over something like The Blood March since that whole unfortunate "incident" with the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament blond female soccer player back in the eighties!"

“Blending nu and classic metal with four part harmonies... TA&TE's complex and ambitious new album shows why this Akron band is looking beyond the local scene in the near future.”

"blends Megadeth with some paganistic goth metal... and every once in a while, a vocal harmony that feels like Kansas. Confused? Maybe that's a good thing. With hard metal riffs, melodic wailing guitars, cool little piano licks, clever tempo changes and moods that switch faster than your girlfriends, it's instantly clear that the band has way above par songwriting chops... and with variety and ascension above nu-crap idiocy, their strengths are promising."
