“A notable difference between Aquila and other Southern Ontario bands is that they thrash throughout their songs, have great guitar leads and refrain from plastering breakdowns throughout their music. They keep it raw and interesting.
Everyone should pick up a copy of Imperium next time Aquila comes to your town. Fans of Assassinate The Following, Unearth, Bloodshoteye and Odium will headbang to Aquila. This band will be legend... Wait for it.... dary.
“love the guitars!! Classic Rock/Metal six string action that just flows from the fretboards of Anthony Rimac and Matt Shelsonne and it's pure ecstasy!”
— Live 4 Metal
“sure to please fans of the more melodic side of modern metal!!
— Unbound Zine
“Lots of nimble, tuneful riffs combined with hardcore chugging and just a hint of tech wankery. All kept at a moderate, head-nodding tempo. It's death metal - but you can tap your foot to it.
— Dalson Chen,Windsor Star
“In all honesty this sounds as good, if not better, than a number of albums released by bigger record labels these days.”
“If you live in Windsor, and you're a fan of bands like Shadows Fall and God Forbid, you should be worshipping Aquila!”
