“Mystical and deeply relevant writing combined with the band's technical precision and singer Robin Lovejoy's encompassing range and power, Amalgamation brings us back to the roots of rock while pushing us forward into an important new construction of music. The group's live performance is unbeatable, offering power and subtlety with tunes that hearken to the best of Zeppelin and PJ Harvey, but elevated by the precious beauty of Lovejoy's voice.”
