"[Sampa The Great]’s cohesive sound pulled from far and wide."
"[T]he band pulled no punches."
"From haunting, theatrical ballads to swinging rock'n'roll, emotion was delivered with every word."
"Polaris have kicked new life into the heavy realm."
They have these backing tracks all through their new album and since they didn't have them they decided not to play a lot of tracks from the album. Which resulted in a more bare bones show, which I'd was heavier, more raw."
"An encore would've been a bastardisation of this perfect set."
"Solberg never broke the act, never missed a note as he commanded the audience like a priest in a dark cathedral, arms raised through the green wash."
"Singing an octave lower than usual, emotion drove Carter's lyrics forward as the band continues to present Tom's legacy."
"... It seemed almost cultish as he led the audience from calculated chaos into breathtaking choruses."
"From Charleston to Dixieland, half-time to double-time, staccato to sustained notes, there was nothing the performers couldn't handle."
