"This is a riveting heavy metal track, with a compelling and dark riff, grim bassline, and progressive drum pattern. The vocals are cunning and clear, painting g a vivid narrative for the listeners through the crafty lyricism and flawless execution. All elements of the track work seamlessly together to create a mythical modern track, sure to capture the attention of thousands of listeners. This is a highly recommended track "
"Driving with the raw energy of classic hard rock, The Haunted North pour their souls into creating authentic, original, and intense rock anthems, and paving the way for a brand new era of indie.
Bringing together the talent and passion of front-man Randy V. and lead guitarist Sean Francis 2019 sees the band welcome in a fresh set of ears and equally impressive musicianship, with newly joining merciless bass-player Marty Rubin, and vicious drummer Andrew Aubut each being welcomed into the brotherhood."

"An ocean of solos and raw instrumental chaos hits with a beautifully organized, hypnotic precision about it. Clarity and intimacy are replaced by this wall of fuzz-soaked power and volume. It’s a stunning way to develop the track, and it highlights yet again how much attention and care the band pays to the structuring and crafting of their songs. This kind of artistic, meaningful arrangement is sadly quite rare these days, but 21 Grams reignites those memories and their lasting impact with brilliant poignancy."

"As an introduction to the band, sometimes the live performance is the best way to go. In this case, the heavy guitar sound and the crash of the drums, meeting with this partly prog-rock vocal that meanders occasionally into Dave Grohl-like territory, meets with notably impressive, engaging songwriting, to win you over on both counts."

"The tracks on Monster aren’t the atonal modern machine metal heard so often now but are built on actual singing, fierce riffing, dynamics, and ripping pentatonic lead guitar. The lineup of vocalist Randy V, guitarist Sean Francis, bassist ‘JD’ DeServio, and drummer Jeff Fabb is an impressive unit with a vibe that bleeds authenticity and lets each musician’s personality and style be heard."
