Enemy Remains / Press

“More melodic than in the past, the album kicks in with a flash as a seemingly tame piano introduction transforms while Kadish and Morin add a head-banging, blackened Thrash feel to contrast the lyrics on “Colony.” Following with “Trust No One,” the two songs go together thematically. While the vocals appear slightly subdued, the guitar work shreds with utter bliss. Then, “Divided by Hate” features a guest spot from Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust, Kingdom of Sorrow) as the band paint a dark picture of anger and frustration.”

“'Enemy Remains releases scorching new single!"”

“With the great riffs and not-to-screamy lyrics, this song strikes a chord with me, and likely will with other metal lovers. The Balance between vocals and instruments was next to perfect. I would recommend this piece, especially for the riff around 2:48 ish. That really sealed the deal for me. 8/10 ~ Unknown”

“The start of the song is very hardcore-rock, and presents a rather dark and mysterious tone. The singer has great voice, and the background vocals add to the song's mysterious undertones. The lyrics go quite well with the song's vibe and present an interesting message.”

Crowd Review

"We choose this track because of the strong message regarding what's going on with our world today," said guitarist Tommy "The Beast" Blardo. "With the effect of today's political views, we felt this was appropriate, and we hope the fans will relate to it. We hope people can totally get behind the message and try resolve some of the hate in the world."

“The intro and vocals are very powerful. The chorus is exactly appropriate for this hardcore progression. The guitars are spot-on with the drummer rhythmically, and the vocalists sound incredible. Perfect use of dissonance and resolution at the end of the chorus "and live for today". I want to buy this song. The harmonies are beautiful and go so well together. In a truly great song, everything falls into place without having to place pieces into places they don't belong. This hard work and effort paid off and I can't wait to hear this song on the radio.”

Review

“We'll hey there. The talent just comes rolling along in this musical piece. They don't hold back anything in this song. The beat starts right off with some solid hardcore guitar and drum playing. It sounds like they are giving it their all in this song. The guitarist plays some very seriously in tune solos. There's thah hardcore rock effect going on. Now when he starts to sing you automatically hear the hardcore rock in the tone of his voice. He has a great pitch and stays on key. It might sound like he is screaming but you can understand what he is saying. His voice might be loud but at the same time it is very clear. Same goes for the lyrics. They make a lot of sense and seem to mesh well with the whole beAt of the song. This band did an excellent job here and I hope that they come out with some more songs soon. Great amount of talent displayed in this piece of music. Two thumbs up to these rocking musicians.”

Review

“Bold introduction that command attention! The Rock Metal groove is performed in a upper novice fashion. The vocalist has a clear tonality and his words are easy to understand. The words are not so catchy, but his energy is great. The vocal and orchestral transition on the hook is dynamic and melodic! Great contrast in sections, which showcases musicianship and and arrangement skills. The composition is good, but does not stand out in the ranks of other records out. Your live performance and expansion of vocal showcasing will make all the difference. Nice orchestral hits and break downs.”

Review

“Nice driving beat from the guitar and the drums at the start. Surprisingly, I could understand the singer's words. I can see this being a hit with lovers of metal because it's enough without being really oppressive. I like when I can understand the singer. Nice beat.”

Review

“Industry reviews of "Live For Today" coming in now and they are eye popping! The beginning of the song automatically made me wake up. Great start to the song to get the listeners attention. The song sounded very angry. i perennially dont listen to these kind of songs however i still like this one. this song has something special than all other songs that are in the sam genre. i ell like i have listened to it before and should defiantly be on radios and be hit. this song will be liked by many people allover the country. overall this song was great and deserves to be more popular and out here.... "Review"”

Review

“The intro is solid with a simple drum beat which focuses the listener on the hard guitar. The introduction of the vocals solidified the initial assumption of metal core. The vocalist is a little hard to understand, especially when layered with a second vocal of yelling. The melody conveys determination and strength, which assists the lyrics. The chorus is solid. The bass has one of the subtlest yet most essential roles and I really appreciate its presence. The song in all becomes clearer as it progresses and I like the layering they do in the end, especially with the classic drop off ending”

Review

“I enjoyed the vocalist who obviously has a lot of talent, and a good band backing him. The guitar rythyms were really awesome and made you want to nod your head. The lyrics were deep and meaningful and the drummer tied every break together masterfully. The vocalist reminds me of the lead singer from Sevendust.”

Review

“I like this! I feel as if the singers voice has uniquely captured the rough tones with a clean technic that rock singers need. I would not be suprised if i heard this song on the radio in the next few months. It is technically very nicely carried out and I would listen to this song if it came on the radio and wonder "who are these guys? i like them"”

Review

“The music is really good. Definitely sounds like rock on the radio. The singer is good for hard rock. This is actually pretty good. This could be a hit for sure. I love the guitar throughout the song. The chorus is perfect for the song.”

Review

“I enjoy the death metal sound at the beginning. It's an awesome start to the song so you can get people excited and pumped about the song. Overall I thought the song was awesome. I just love the loudness and passion of the song you are singing. One of the best death metal songs I have heard. really enjoyed it.”

Review

“heavy guitar opening very korn/limp bizkit like. the vocals seem very hard rock/country so this style is more directed at that audience however the vocal also bleeds into the screamo/ emo-metal category. the recording is professionally mixed and ready for the radio. this style may be more popular in the eastern and northeastern usa.”

Review

“Very professional sounding. I am enjoying this track. The drumming is perfect and the electric guitar solo was spot on. I like the harshness of the vocals. I would like to hear this on the radio as I drive down the highway after a long day of work. Very high energy music”

Review

“nice start of rock in roll vibe with awesome scream-o vocals. along with great acoustic and the drum beat is amazing and love the way it fits in it stands out to me. along with the lyric and amazing meaning behind it I love the vibe of the whole song it was great and could see it being more and very tuneful.”

Review

“Solid instrumental beginning. The voice had a raw powering touch to it. The lyrics were pretty clear and the beat was catchy. I could totally see this song in rock movies since it really gives that feeling.”

Reverbnation Review

“Crazy guitar riff, sounds a bit like Metallica. The singer fits the style perfectly. The guitarist seems talented and the drummer is amazing to listen to. The production is well done on this song and I can definitely hear this on rock and roll stations across the nation.”

Reverbnation Review 10/2014

“Enemy Remains These guys were actually really good. Their drummer is the original drummer for Fates Warning, which is pretty cool. I met them later on, got them to sign my program. I however did not move to see them, as I wanted to save my spot for Meliah Rage. And, as the crowd that formed during Enemy Remains played showed, it was a wise decision.”

“The drums are sick, so off beat. The guitar is heavy which I like, HIs voice is down right nasty, With those pitch harmonics are sick, Very good sound. reminds me of a very mean Dio, these guys are good, no complaints it even has a break down, I'd love for this song to play again I'd listen to it all they way through. They are very good musicians”

Reverb Reveiw

“***Very energetic and freakin' sweet track! The track pulls you with the heaviness and doesn't stop, but in a good way! The energy this track gives off fits the metal genre persona PERFECTLY. The vocals were just the right amount masculine and harmonic and laid over the hard instrumental beautifully. The vocals remind me a lot of other metal bands such as Testament and Pantera which really puts these guys in good running for a record deal. I'd sign them if I had a label to be honest! 10 out of 10.”

Reverb Review

“song has a nice drum track with the double bass pedals frolicking along creates a high octane, adrenaline blasting rock track.”

Reverb Review

“This song reminds me a bit of Avenged Sevenfold. Not bad I suppose, these songs usually grow on me the more I listen to them and I think this could be a song I'd see on my music library if it were released. The guitar solo was really impressive also.”

Reverb Review

“Start of the song has a great heavy metal energy to it. Vocals are on point and have a great tone to them. Band has talent and potential. Overall i think this band could be successful and have great charisma. I can imagine them playing at a festival or on Scuss or Kerrang music channels. I enjoyed the energetic vibrancy of the song.”

Reverb Review

“does sound like a professional rock band that is heard on the radio”

Reverb Review

“The guitar has a lot of potency, it is powerful and really electric sounding, it has a decent heavy power and keeps your interest in the song. The drums keep up with it and keep the song ticking too. The vocals generate good life and power in their tone, they manage to sing powerfully without shouting too much and keep level with the guitar quite effectively. I thought this was a very listenable rock song, it perhaps needs a slightly catchier chorus to really stand out and be a hit, but it has power and energy and a decent vocal performance, so it was worth your time.”

Reverb Review

“Opening instruments really get the soul into a mode that wants to rage about anything. The song is a mean, hard core song that deals with very deep lyrics. Even with the singer's rough voice, the lyrics can still be heard. The song is a good song when mad and you need to listen to your feelings.”

Reverb Review

“Powerful intro in the very beginning. Sounds like old school rock. Nice and powerful. Not all grunge and screaming. Composition was very nice and the range of the instruments was fantastic. Lyrics sounded good with the beat. Overall, i would listen to this band more often if given the opportunity.”

Reverb Reveiw

“The heavy guitar playing that opens the track is an excellent example of how it should be done! The tempo is perfectly paced with a fast moving song! The pitch varies a lot, which allows for an exciting song.”

Reverb Reveiw

“Very hard hitting and heavy. This is a metal type of song. The vocals are a little bit better on this track. Talking about being on a higher ground. The music is in excellent combo with good guitars and sound. The sound mix has a good stable pattern. Good tune for rocking out the house and driving your parents crazy.”

"First Album On Itunes!" "Two Faces Two Minds" ~ Jan. 5, 2012

WitchWizard Entertainment

“I realize Matheos writes all the music, and I firmly believe that all the changes in style and direction are his doing. It just so happens that when he booted Zimmerman and brought in Zonder, that was a major turning point in their sound. Zonder is an incredible drummer, very technical and precise, but he doesn't play a very "metal" style. Zimmerman hit harder and had more metalesque fills and such.”

“How can you leave out that masterpiece??? Bottom line is that Fates started going downhill as soon as Zimmerman left. Don't get me wrong, I respect the hell out of Zonder's playing, but their style continually drifted away from metal with each passing album after they fired Steve. Zonder is incredible, but his talent was wasted on Matheos' very un-metal songwriting. I listened to some of the samples posted, and just as I suspected, they are way heavier than anything Fake Warning has done in a long, long time. Good luck to Steve Z.! His drumming on No Exit was awesome! I really like his "loose", but hard-hitting style a lot. He has more "feel" than a lot of the mechanical-sounding, precision-oriented drummers out there.”

“bring back Zimmerman & Arch and maybe the original fates fans can have somrething to be proud of again. lately their last few releases have made RUSH sound more metal. ”

“They sound very professional (Steve Z is amazing btw),”

John Kovacic "A&R Music Clout"

“Former Drummer for Fates Warning Steve Zimmerman and Guitarist Tommy Blardo have finally released their 1st CD and it KILLS !! I have been fortunate enough to play some dates with them and listen to many of these songs played live. But hearing them all together in an album format really say's it all. From the first track "Remember Tomorrow" the band is on fire. Crushing Riffs, Searing Solo's, Powerhouse Vocals and The Thunder of Steve Zimmerman sums up what you will hear from all 11 tracks. Theres nothing that will dissapoint as each song rips the flesh from your ears. Vocals are shared by Tom and Original Vocalist Kevin Flowers who both handle the duties with precision !! This stuff is sick and I advise anyone who is serious about their metal to give it a listen. Great Job Fella's !! Now Get on the raod and promote the S_ _ _ out of it !!!!! ”
