MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO

““Left to Follow – what a kick ass Fun Rocking song! Mad Energy for days, and instantly catchy in all the right ways. The musicianship is impeccable, And full of fire. This tune was so much high energy Metal fun that I nearly forgot it was undoubtedly going to have a guitar solo. And what a fucking explosion - HOLY FUCKING SHIT. Completely over the top shredding - enough guitar insanity to melt even the most jaded of faces, even after repeated listening’s. Day of Reckoning is UNDENIABLE.”
