Phantom Tollbooth (USA) 4.5 / 5 It is not necessary to be a connoisseur of Lord of the Rings to enjoy these phenomenally constructed tracks.[…] What stands out time and time again is the great guitar playing. The balance between rock, symphony and Celtic music is perfect. ROCK MUZINE (Holland) 96/100 What famous musicians are saying..
“Dave Brons is that rare guitarist: Technically brilliant but melodic and soulful.He has a truly unique direction to his playing: He secretly wishes he played the ‘Celtic instruments’ and , as a result, takes his frustration out on the fretboard to dazzling and splendid effect! Troy Donockley (Nightwish) “Dave Brons is an imaginative player with a great groove. I loved hearing his unique take on my music when we played together and look forward to hearing a lot more music from him” Stu Hamm (Bassist for Steve Vai, Joe Satriani)
