Tyranny of Hours


Press Quotes and Comments 

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”

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.”

Battle Helm Magazine – “….a really cool record”

Femme Metal Webzine – “With their debut, Tyranny of Hours is a band that is quite focused and has the ability to stand out from a rather crowded pack of good symphonic, progressive metal bands. Overall, I was hugely impressed with Tyranny of Hours and can’t wait to hear more from them in the future.”

Ravenheart Music – “Michelle’s vocals are awesome”

Angel Fire Metal CD Ratings– “There isn’t one song that I don’t like though, and the CD flows from start to finish without even one questionable moment……Because of Michelle’s vocals, big fans of Edenbridge and Forgotten Tales should pick this CD up blindly, but I also highly recommend it to all fans female fronted metal, as the quality is higher than most CDs out there.”
