    Decent start, with Blind Guardian and Avantasia being the biggest names, personally. Looking forward to the rest!

    Unbelievably excited to be playing this.

    Our EP was just released today. If anyone would like to check it out, would really appreciate it

    We've drawn comparisons with Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Mastodon and more.
