‘Who’s Watching’ is a very successful piece of work with the proper dynamics, energy level, flow, instrumentation and most importantly; the attitude. – https://metalheadcommunity.com
The songs move around core-metal themes, presenting very energetic music, full of aggression and spontaneity, as well as strong hits enriched with a specific simple melody giving a pinch of darkness. – metalcentre.com
Creating such great songs with so many influences make sure 3000AD is the new Thrash Metal sensation. – themetalmag.com
