"We were very, very impressed by them... awesome job guys!"
Jonny Hawkins / Nothing More
"These young fellas recently turned some heads at a Lexington, KY show, opening for Bad Wolves and Nothing More, and also seem to have released a killer first album! Very unique sound ... imagine some influences like Tool and Alice in Chains. Great stuff. Very mature sound with a nice blend of melodic, sing-along passages, and some definite head-banging heaviness! Highly recommended!"

"EXCELLENT! You guys have the quality and chops of a major label group with ten more years at it. Your lyrics, arrangements, vocals and sheer musicianship is head-bending. Your sense of time and counterpoint is way at the top of the pack. Finally, whoever recorded and mixed these songs "gets it". Very skilled mixes that push the excitement. WELL DONE!"

CJ Jones: Guitar/Lead Vocals
"I grew up with classic rock and later got into prog. Rush, Karnivool, and Tool among many other artists are probably the biggest influences on our music. There really is nothing better than getting on stage and giving your absolute best."
Ryan Slayton: Drums
"I have many musical influences and artists I love to listen to - Tool, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Alice in Chains, Porcupine Tree - and more drummers than I could even begin to list off."
David DeWolfe: Bass/Vocals
"It's hard to boil down who my band inspirations
are, as there are so many. Everyone I've had a musical relationship with whether it is on stage or simply
listening to them. I love to diversify my musical palate and hear what all music has to offer."
