Profile if you are looking for obscure U.S. hard rock / aor indies don’t pass this one up…you will love the perfect blend of keyboards and guitars on this one. The band sounds like a mix between Vixen to Laos with some really killer songs and lots of progressive elements. All songs are really interesting, and while vocalist Cassandra DeGroodt feels quite amateurish at places, the rest of the band are fairly good musicians. Cassandra’s vocal performance is sometimes, I’d say, weak and erratic, and the mix does not help much – a shame, because Gary Funk’s keyboard runs are pretty fan-damn-tastic. Gary uses a wonderful arsenal of vintage analog synths – a Pomp trademark sound – complemented by Keith Garret’s old-school guitar set-up which turn things very classy regarding this genre.
