"Dark Rain"

“We’re off to Brunswick , Maine, a place that barely escaped being Canadian to listen to Dark Rain, a female fronted hard rock band. In their part of the world, they’ve opened shows for the likes of Zakk Wylde and White Lion, amongst others, but this is their turn in the spotlight. And it’s pretty good. It’s modern rock, but with a few hints of nineties metal in and around the guitars, which at least do me the courtesy of being high in the mix, a pet hate of mine in the world of modern rock. I shouldn’t have to shove me ears into a speaker to find the bloody guitar! The band are solid, and the vocals work well. They’ve also got a few good tunes under their belt, with the likes of ‘Get Ready’ and ‘Behind the Screen’ more than capable of getting a few radio plays under their belt. Melodic, without wimping out, this was a pleasant listen.” - the-rocker.co.uk


"Adrian Hextall"

"The sound is a fuzzy blues rock approach, with elements of psychedelic rock thrown in as well."

"The guitar work brings to mind early Sabbath at Times
"Lightning Strikes sees the band hit thier stride and the classic rock based riffs and vocals work very well. Its in this space that the band really shine. Richards and Leavitt really push thier voices and the higher ranges feel like a much better fit for the tracks. Imagine a mix of Ann Wilson singing in Early Heart and Bon Scott singing together and you have a good idea how this song sounds."

"There's definatly promise here" - Powerplay Magazine
