"Ticks all the boxes for me .... ace ... shades of the Manics"

Jim Gellatly, Amazing Radio

"A seven minute rock opera wonder! Ambitious"

Pure M Picks

"Any band that can make me think of Ultravox and Metallica simultaneously deserve a mention ... epic"
Mathew Priest, Rhythm Magazine

"Princess of Persia by Archangel braces a powerful performance on all fronts ... ingenious ... visionary ... a pioneering group in the independent music industry"


"Big In Estonia is an extremely theatrical piece of work. The adept instrumental talent and poignant melodies displayed throughout are all very grand scale, resulting in an EP that’s as exhilarating as it is dramatic"

Pure M Magazine


"The band's original rock style, akin to Queen meets Gary Newman's PC-generated sounds, has already earned them some rave reviews"

Irvine Herald

"I absolutely could not believe what I was hearing - raw intensity and emotion coupled with socially aware lyrics ... a very tight band ... a unique aural experience"
Eat This Music

"A melancholy version of the stadium rock genre ... The Doors do political cabaret ... there was an intensity to their performance that bodes well for the future"


"A synth-rock outfit that produce the kind of noise you'd expect to find in Dungeons & Dragons-type video games"

"Congratulations on your fifteenth birthday"
