Quote: 'Quickening's debut album A Victory is a successful musical manifestation of the band's tour centered fan base's support and emotion...it seems they are destined only for victory indeed.' By Genevieve Will Inde-Music.com Led by vocalist, guitarist frontman James Isom, this 'Tool'-box assorted 4 song demo makes a strong statement to the radio friendly, cheese-pop bands. The statement is: these guys actually have the nads to play for themselves and boy, does it sound REAL! By: Dan Bergman-Evolving Artist ...And get who they've shared the stage with none other than Hum, Hey Mercedes, Jets to Brazil, American Hi-Fi, Shiner, Our Lady Peace, just to name a few. Impressive huh? Well not nearly as impressive as this EP! It's shameful that these kids are just in the early 20's as they sound mature enough to give legendary rockers a lesson or two. J Linder-Smother.net Cleveland is a very hard town to compete in. That said, Quickening has taken a sound that has been recently smothered to death, and taken it to a flavor that even the Ice-Cream-Man can't keep in stock. Jeremy-Gods of Music.
