“A bona fide headliner opening the night… Capable of dealing out both killer metal and power ballads with a more commercial edge, these guys should be peering out of national newspapers” – SonicAbuse
“This band has a resonance and vitality that hit the mark. With their two vocalists and thrilling performance, this Nottingham band put on a show that was volcanic.” – Musicinleicester.co.uk
Beckon Lane EP:
“The Nottingham four piece are muscular and thumping from their opening riff, and manage to distil all that’s rather good about hard rock… It all makes for a hugely enjoyable and massively ambitious glimpse into the world of a band that you sense is capable of something truly special. Rating 8.5/10” – Maximum Volume Music
“a strong statement of intent from a band with a powerful identity already working for them and, from the moment the first grueling riff kicks in, you know you’re in for one hell of a trip. The Beckon Lane EP is a testament to the amazing talent that exists in the UK underground scene today.” – Sonic Abuse
“Beckon Lane is a serious contender. The guys have crafted a sound that’s unique, a sound that’s powerful, and a sound that’s going to appeal to fans of a variety of spectrums of the metal genre.” – LoudStuff
