“In a time when every band seems to want to sound heavy by down-tuning and screaming at you like an angry drill sergeant at a lazy cadet, Messenger have opted to give us real riffs, heavy guitars, driving rhythms and melody! This song is fantastic!” -Scott Waters (Host - No Life ‘til Metal Records)
“Washington D.C.’s Messenger arrives with Blind Sided, their latest single which previews a new album. Crushing with the melody and drive of a bullet train, air guitarists will scream in delight. Delivering a charge of energy, Blind Sided provides a momentous blast of guitar driven intensity. It will demand you hit the replay button immediately and often. Providing a message of hope amidst the changing currents of life, we are anxiously awaiting the rest of their forthcoming album. Blind Sided offers an amazing assault of great heavy metal. Top shelf!!” - Keven Crothers (Host - White Throne Metal Radio)
“With an in-your-face barrage of high energy, Messenger has seamlessly moved from a classic hard rock sound, to a full=speed ahead classic metal feel. Metallic riffs, leads, driving double bass drum frenzy, and soaring melodic vocals provide an infectious energy, and will make you wanting more. I want MORE, please! “ - Jeff McCormack (Heaven's Metal Magazine)
