"face-frying set from Icelandic rockers Sign, a band that are surely on the fast track to headlining this and much bigger venues. Sign offers a firestorm of guitar work, ozone-scaping vocals and just enough of the familiar to stay on repeat play on your memory for days"... Kerrang! 27th Sept. 06

Biography
