Comments and reviews…

“This music is unlike anything else out there. Cerebral, deep, epic... uncompromising…”
~ Billy Batson, Holy Moses

“Bright, yet dark... moody, yet epic!… Angel Xyra and players have merged eclectic influences to develop a truly unique genre! Emotive vocals, strong melodies, memorable lyrics, and powerful musicianship bring integrity, high art, intellect, and finesse to the mix.”
~ Richard Fuller: National Public Radio (NPR);
Voice of America (VoA) Television

A review of “The Only Door”, recorded with the original Flight of Odin lineup:

“Fascinating record, beautiful production, all the magic, mystery, and truth promised from a rock & roll record. Listen to the whole presentation of all the songs to receive the complete cumulative effect.
At once mind blowing, and then again, heart-rending to those who can still feel and hear. Monumental!"
~ Billy Batson, lead singer/songwriter for the
original Holy Moses band; a Billboard award-
winning major label artist.

“...Unexpected, cataclysmic! Mesmerizing… brightly stunning in delivery... flying between lightning and eagles. Memorable, image-laden lyrics tell fantastic tales, and herald warnings with vocal clarity, driving us past our prescribed comfort zone...”

“Heart meets Black Sabbath on the one hand, and Dead Can Dance meets The Doors on the other... cliff-hanging with the mystical side of Led Zeppelin.”
