The classic and the fresh collude across Rise Up for a multi-flavoured proposal which demands attention. There is a punch to the release which often left us breathless but equally a comforting reassurance in a world of madness from those recognisable inspirations to its character. Produced by Life of Agony’s Joey Zampella, the album assaults and incites, harasses and inflames body and senses from start to finish leaving plenty for the imagination to play with too.”

Their latest installment, Rise Up, is an album steeped in old school heavy metal, which produces a classic sound with a modern twist.”

Industry Music Magazine

This album is nothing short of a staggering ride where if you listen closely, it will awaken something inside of you.”

Allyson Kingsley, Boston Rock Radio

Overall, the album progresses nicely throughout and is worth putting in your regular listening rotation. *Testament-esque is a new word penned for this occasion and I'm pretty sure doesn’t need a definition if you’re any kind of metalhead.”
