"Dragnerve, they're not about blasting you with blast beats and kind of froggy vocals you know, they've got a bit of melody and have an old school kind of groove to them as well. Think Pantera mixed with Machine Head with a bit of Metallica as well!" - Johnny Doom - Kerrang Radio

--------------------------

Formed in London as recently as December 2007, Dragnerve are out to fly their flag against the forces of metal-gone-pop they see much of the present day metal scene to be devolving into. So when we say they play a metal rooted in the sounds of Metallica and Pantera, it'd be easy to think 'here's another nostalgia act'.
Thankfully, what we have here is a band who use their influences as just that. Which is why the likes of 'A Life In Ashes', could have existed a decade ago, but still sounds remarkable fresh today.

Vocalist Andy Hutton's vocals are used mostly in a soulful Scott Weiland croon to a thuggish, Anselmo growl to a full on monsters scream. For a demo, and for a band less than a year old, this is impressive work. - Phill May - Rock Midgets.com

--------------------------

This is a band who are surely destined to be a British institution, 'cos they give it plenty & there's plenty of it!! Well worth checking out, I tell ya!! Destined for big things Iím sure!! - Big Jim - The RockShow

" This 5 track CD combines the melody of good hard rock, with pantera-esque no holds barred thrash. Groovy breakdowns feature heavily in this bands music and they are not afraid to use some good heavy riffage. " - BornInBlood

'"London based metallers Dragnerve have only been together since the ass-end of 2007 and already they've released this, their debut demo...I do detect a hint of something special here. First up, the music is as vibrant as hell, with the guitars inparticular, sounding extremely fresh, with hints of old school Metallica, early Machine Head and the obligatory Pantera influence...The Thrashy undertones have huge potential and Dragnerve sound genuinely exciting when the intensity kicks in". -Live4Metal

"Dragnerve! Dragnerve! DRAGNEEEEEEEEERVE!!! Machine Head, Lamb Of God, and maybe even Super Joint Ritual might need to watch the fuck out. Here come London, England's bastard brothers Dragnerve. Dragnerve has a crushing sound that will kick you in the genitals...They have a punishing groove... They aren't afraid to throw in a hardcore beat here and there. Dragnerve has really impressed me. They have given me hope for the future of Pure Heavy Metal. Their music is fucking serious. (London) has given birth to a fucking destruction machine ¦Dragnerve. Keep killing gentlemen."- A. C. Zinn - Vblazin Magazine

"If you're like us...you want to hear the best and latest sound in all types of music! That's exactly what Dragnerve gives you! The best new metal sound we've heard in quite a while... cranks out deep, dark and melodic music that will have you bangin' your head!"- V-Twin Girls
