Harder Beat webzine

This album has it all - sick riffs, blasting drums, impressive vocal work and a top-notch level of songwriting. That’s great and all, but the production nearly kills it. The bass is poorly maintained; the vocals and guitar seem to battle for the front with a noticeable lack of depth in each and the drums are average. The Italian trio is tight, focused and heavy as hell, but the marred production takes a lot away from the impact. Aside from that, the CD artwork kicks ass (guitarist Marco is an artist for Marvel Comics Europe and includes a strip of the band inside the booklet) and the entire deal is pretty good. Balatonizer has loads of potential, and cleaning up the production might just expose them to the world.
