“They have this pomp-ness but not over-progressed style in their music that may remind you of enough of the works of Queen, Styx and Kansas. When they sharpen things up they tend to sound erotic and emotional like Whitesnake or Foreigner or even Skid Row. When power takes over, there’s a clear Savatage sperm with the atmosphere being supreme and haunting.” (Metalkaoz.com)
