“With talented players and a knack for writing and arranging, [tattermask is] on par with bigger national acts.”

“The vocals of Amanda Caines conjure up images of Evanescence and they fit the genre’s standards well — heavy rock rhythms, catchy hooks and occasional humor.”

“Tattermask was on fire and unstoppable. From the time they stepped on stage to their final bow, they were bombastic and kept my attention.”

“Josh Wright and Travis Dry are easily the best twin guitar line-up in Charlotte. Both guys, both shows I have seen, have blown me away with not only their technical prowess, but their abilities to be technically proficient while at the same time making excellent music.”

“A powerful, yet all too short, recording of staggering import, Carpe Noctum reintroduces the rock world to a band from Charlotte, NC that demands an attentive listen and serious attention. They’ve certainly recaptured mine.”

“The indie band Tattermask hails from Charlotte, North Carolina and they seem to have all the pieces to their musical puzzle fitting together perfectly. Proof of that is evident in their newest album Carpe Noctem which is being released this month.”

“Ladies and gentlemen I am here to tell you that Tattermask are beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the best bands on the Charlotte scene. The musicianship alone is miles beyond the other bands in this area that I have witnessed, topped with the amazing voice of Amanda all playing some powerful songs, and you’ve got a band that if they catch the right moment in time could do some big things in the music world. From the moment they took the stage you knew you were dealing with an absolutely professional and prepared band.”

“Fronted by the energetic and animated Amanda Caines, Tattermask has been creeping into ears and hearts since 2007. With the current line up- Harley Quinn (bass), Josh Wright (guitar), Travis Dry (guitar) and Adam Blackmon (drums)- Tattermask has been preparing to embark on a busy, and ludicrous, 2014 with more music, touring and absurdities.”

“This song blankin' rocks. The female vocals and the heavy music is awesome. I would pay to see them in concert. Sounded like Staind with Amy Lee; I loved it.”

“I have listened to the band many times since I started The Pit Unsigned, but being able to see them live brought chill bumps to my arms.It was like finally getting to meet a band you really love to listen to, for the first time and being STARSTRUCK.”

“It’s acts like this that make me still believe in the power of music and strength of the underground, because great things can happen when bands are truly willing to give their all to the music.”

"... the promoter flaked out of the bill just a few weeks prior and put the show in jeopardy of being canceled. Thankfully, for the fans and other bands on the bill, Charlotte rockers Tattermask decided that wasn’t going to happen ... they had a lot of fans in the house that night; as soon as they took the stage people were headbanging and singing along to songs..."

“Pleasantly pleased by what I heard. That's awesome!”

“It sounded like she was trying to be Amy Lee but made it her own, which sounds really good.”

“...the music behind her has more balls to it than Evanescence does... that's good enough to be a rock radio song."”

“A top, top band. Every track is well constructed and is built by layers upon layers of solid riffs, thunderous drums and those damn good, addictive vocals. Like I commented earlier, these four talented people do exactly what they say they are going to do and don’t hold back.”

“The guitar riffs are sweeping and pulsating, ranging from the chugging that one would hear in post-grunge music to the squeals that can be heard in a melodic metal-core Killswitch Engage song.”

“Tattermask menacingly reveals a heavy alternative rock face haunted by dramatic and melodic moods to keep expressions liquid, flowing, strange and exotic. Amanda Caines, Josh Wright, Richy Lewis, and Ryan Fosnow control Tattermask's eclectic flexibility wielding influences from Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, to Sevendust and more for their intense unity.”

“Charlotte, N.C.-based outfit Tattermask leads the charge with an explosive sound that falls somewhere between Evanescence and Sevendust”

“The focus of a Tattermask live performance is on high-energy music, definitely animated and well-entrenched in emotion, for a wallop of overall intensity.”

“It's a rainy and stormy night in July. Most mainstream listeners ...are not looking for those hidden gems that are local bands. Tattermask is one of those bands that is considered a hidden gem and a handful of people in the casbah of Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte reaped the rewards.”

“Tattermask delivered their set with strong-willed determination, power guitar stances and amazing lead vocals.”
