Black Feathers Reviews
Here's an album that would be the perfect remedy for a breakup, a celebration, or perfect company to just about any state of mind. It's diverse, it's loud, it's melodic, it's not tied down to one genre, it's characterized by ample creativity derived from each band member's role in every song.

Guitarist Travis Whitton paints the walls with riffs, solos and textures, never neglecting the melody, while the rhythm section shakes the foundations. Vocalist Rachel Whitton has a forceful presence...
