"This is the bay area thrash I grew up with, and it seems to be making a come back. Your solos remind me of early Kirk Hammett when it was real and from the heart (Exodus/Metallica)"
“I have seen the future of METAL and POWERAXIUM is the name!!”
“Damn great sound! Reminds me a lot of old school Metallica and Megadeth. Freakin amazing!!”
"i dig the harmonies and riffs on martial law. but inquistion is my fav track. i dig the megadeth feel of the first riffs. but you bring an original take on it and a true heavymetal feel. looking forward to hearing more in the future keep thrashing"
"Great stuff Sam, Martial Law & Inquistion are very powerful. I think you've found your calling."
"I personally love it when an artist wears his influences like a badge of honor. I can hear the influence of Metallica on your playing loud and clear - from your rhythmic Master of Puppets era Hetfield picking to almost channeling Hammett in the style, form, and structure of your solos. That said, what you've written here should not be classed with the thousands and thousands of Metallica clones out there. There is more to "Martial Law" than that. I hear just enough modern sound to honor your influences while creating something new."
"Talk about high energy! Sounds like Poweraxium said "hi energy, were Poweraxium, let's rock"! Cool"
"Love the use of time signature changes and the textures in the instruments and layering. Sounds the way i think driving a Porsche down a winding country road at a 100 miles per hour would feel! "
"Great guitar riffs and more of an old school metal sound.. ie megadeath, Randy Rhoads style."
"top notch, dynamic, sonic complexity"
"Phenomenal writing. Great atmosphere throughout your work."
"...you have great energy. Ur passion comes thu your axe."
"Awesome music, great guitar work reminds me of a mix megadeth, slayer and metallica."
"Sam, "Martial Law" is frickin' excellent, your guitar licks kick @SS, it's got a killer Dave Mustaine vibe to it!...\m/.."
“You've got a killer right hand and write great arrangements”
"Old school. Good stuff. I'm hearing definite Megadeth influences in there. Great guitar work!"
"Your music is really good man!!! Keep pushing man to get heard because thats Major Label Stuff!!!!"
