What the press is saying about Tyranny of Hours
Music Street Journal – ” There is a lot of talent in the PNW, but one thing’s for sure, nothing quite as original as this in the hard progressive metal department.”
Sugar and Spikes Music – “…a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating album of the utmost quality that will surely be a landmark for 2013.”
Sorrow Eternal Magazine – “their amount of passion on this album is unmatched. Epica’s, Xandria’s, and Nightwish’s debut albums weren’t nearly this good. It sounds like a band in their prime, rather than a band starting out”…..”There is no doubt that this is one of the best debut albums in eons.”
Sonic Cathedral Magazine – “I can’t find any weaknesses on this album…I think Tyranny of Hours is going to launch this band into big things, and I can’t wait to watch their journey…”
Ugly Scene Magazine – “The female-fronted symphonic metal band has range and uniqueness that delivers”
Melodic Hard Rock Today – “An excellent debut from Tyranny Of Hours, and I really look forward to follow this fine band in the years to come!! So people out there check them out, they are really outstanding!!! 100/100″

Wicked Channel Magazine – “This is a band that can deliver and a singer who can really give you a showcase that guys one minute will fall in love with her and the next fear that she is going to come thru the speakers to haunt you.”
Sea of Tranquility – “There is no tyranny in the hours you will spend listening to this album. You will enjoy this debut from opening to close. I recommend that you do get acquainted with this band because they do have the talent to take them afar.”
