"Curiosity piqued I made my way over to encounter Rising Dream and “Wha…? She…HOW!?” My word. That voice’d give Angela Gossow the willies."
"Rising Dream are sweet and sour, Ines Tanceva's split personality vocals enchanting and fearsome in equal measures, but her strengths lie mainly in her Gossow-like rasp."
"These guys can sound virtuosic and commercial at the same time - they have no fear of growl or female voices. Give them a chance and check them out!"
"FAILED APOCALYPSE definitely deserves attention. Most of the songs have strong live potential - I haven’t heard such hub for the stage show in a long time."
"FAILED APOCALYPSE is combining heavy, power, thrash, melodic death and acoustic moments, ethnic elements, groove, rough and modernist elements, with the right dose of melody and aggression.” 8.5/10
"In a genre in which we can find quite a considerable number of similar bands, it is difficult to make an impression, and yet it is exactly what RISING DREAM succeeded from the beginning."
"From the technical and the compositional side, RISING DREAM is very professional, as seen through sophisticated and varied songwriting." 4.5/5
"FAILED APOCALYPSE is a very balanced mixture of different ingredients."
