“This band nailed it. With two excellent singers fronting the band, and back up musicians who don’t miss a beat, this band is one of the finest in their genre. Stoffe is a great hardcore vocalist nailing the songs perfectly. Their intense live performances and the quality of their compositions is what makes this band stand out.” Alt Music Review
