“Sublimely atmospheric. Unashamedly epic. A sense of power and drama hitherto unequalled. A genuinely potent force.”

Prog magazine

“The most uplifting progressive rock music you could ask for, intelligent well structured numbers, soaring guitar work, beautiful vocals. Ambitious. Dramatic, exotic and lushly textured. Dazzling.”

Get Ready to Rock

“A tapestry of kaleidoscopic sounds reminiscent of Pink Floyd and Marillion.”
