Simeon Soul Charger / Press

“One of the most exciting debut albums of recent years. (MMITAL) ”

Michael Rensen - Rock Hard Magazine

“Rock with a swagger. Twin guitar attack. Amazing vocals worthy of Queen. There's some psychedelica, classic bluesy rock, complicated progressive structures, jumbo sized riffs but mainly pure joy of music! ”

“The band can boast an authentic retro sound that includes a masterful blend of prog, psychedelic and folk, and where, in spite of the numerous quotations never has the feeling that it was just a simple copy.”

“Simeon Soul Charger boasts a swaggering confidence, blatantly defying categorization. ”

Jeff Niesel - Cleveland Scene Magazine

“Pure unadulterated prog session indie rock: confusing, hard-edged, sometimes angry, sometimes melodious. And quite mad.”

Grand Guitars Magazine

“It is duly-substantiated to regard Simeon Soul Charger from Ohio as the next hype.”

“Riffs which would fill Led Zeppelin with awe, solos which would make Hendrix green with envy, plus a dash of madness which conjure up a furious psychedelic rock with garage and punk traits ”

"In an era of watered down rock and roll, Simeon Soul Charger manages to stand out as a truly great rock band. It’s good to still be able to listen to new bands that aren’t afraid to melt the audience’s face off"

““On their 2009 self-titled debut EP, Simeon Soul Charger capture their distinctive cosmic gospel. For six songs, the Akron five-piece orchestrates arena rock you might associate with Muse or Spiritualized, backed by grandiose guitar sweeps, electronics, pizzicato strings and singer-songwriter Aaron Brook's operatic screams, which go from Matthew Bellamy to Jeff Buckley.””

““Every once in a while, a band comes seemingly out of nowhere and makes an immediate impact with their professionalism, talent and a knack for creating amazing music. Having been in existence for less than a year but already promoting a phenomenal EP, a tour schedule, and a hypnotic live show, Simeon Soul Charger is one of those bands.””

““We’ve written about Simeon Soul Charger before and their fairly direct rock vibe was in full effect on Friday. I hadn’t seen them for a while and it was good to confirm that my original opinion was well-founded. They rock.””
