The first thing that came across like a furious haymaker was the edgy tightness
and easy energy of the foursome. I came out of the gig hoarse, and with a rapidly developing crick in the neck – two sure shot signs of having been to a kickass gig.
Watch out for these guys, they’re merciless.

Canadian band Q.E.D did their first show in India to a tiny crowd and bad sound at Razz, but they were bloody amazing. The band, in its hour long set took me from initial apprehension, to upbeat approval, to an
unmitigated thumbs up as I walked out of Razz a fan, glad to have been there, glad to have caught them in action.

It is such a rare pleasure to see a band get on a stage and take immediate charge…what was most important to me was that I was watching a band that imbued every tune they did with a unique energy and intelligence.

Many lyricists can’t tell an adjective from a pecan, and Ra quotes Arthur C. Clarke…carefully organized, even orchestrated. Solid, entertaining fare for fans with degrees.

Both the band and the CD are getting rave reviews at every stop along the way. The band might best be described as thinking man’s hard rock…combination of crunching heavy guitars and strong vocal melodies alongside hypnotic bass grooves and atmospheric texturing. Ra has a great sense of melody and a compelling vocal style. Writing intelligent and challenging rock music is becoming a lost art and I found “Searching For Adjectives” to be a refreshing change. - Craig West – Soo Today

…an unpredictable sojourn into the rough bequeathing diamond treasures. Their quirky sonic layers and unconventional lyric patterns keep you listening like you’d watch an M. Night Shyamalan flick, wondering what’s going to happen next. - Jennifer Parks – Prince George Free Press

Smart, slick, powerful, strange, heavy, esoteric, haunting, experimental…out of the deep blue comes one of Edmonton’s strongest rock bands. The songs are filled with layers of sound, melding electronics with hard rock grooves and themes inspired by science fiction. - Mike Ross – The Edmonton Sun
