"A 3 piece hard rock band with a stoner/avant-garde complex, which is quite a concept.. The bass is impressive, drums are magnanimous, the vocals are unique and the guitar? The riffs are ecstasy.. The genres were blended well, like a fine wine. They rock from the core." Scary's Reviews - 20th Feb 2022
