“On first listening before the guitar warrior starts, I could sum up the album in a sentence – Caged raw live energy across the eleven tracks as Krissy is the comet of British blues taking us on a sexy and freaky ride.”
Blues Doodles

“All in all, musically, this band are tight, Krissy knows his way around a fretboard and has a great voice. If you’re into power trios a must.”
Blues Matters

“This is not just a placesetter for the next new piece, this is a serious piece of kit. Ignore his zebra print sides, Krissy Matthews is a big beast.”

“This is a good, solid release that showcases the talents of one of the best British blues guitarists around at the moment.”
Metal Discovery

“Showcasing his individuality throughout, Krissy unleashes a blistering array of blues rock infested beauty in this high octane performance.”
Rock ‘n’ Load

“A gifted and uber-creative guitarist who knows exactly what he wants to sound like, and who he is…one of the best guitar players the UK blues scene has produced…a tight little unit with the right to say they put the power into power trio.”
Music Republic

“Recorded last April at the Freak Valley Fesival in Germany, it’s a balls-to-the-wall power trio fest. On ‘All Night Long’, Krissy’s solo is fast and frantic and the band is crisp and tight.”

“This is a swaggering, dynamic document of a pulsating live show. The sound of the CD is huge, particularly in the snap of the drums and the howl of the lead guitar.”
Rock and Roll Traffic.

“The musicianship that is on display is second to none and goes a long way in showcasing why Matthews is regarded as one the best, upcoming Blues guitarists on the scene. Packed with fantastic extended jams, this album is one for the guitarists out there.”
Ouroboros PR.
