“This is metal, with balls; fresh, fabulous riffage and fascinating lead work. This proves somewhat misleading when the vocals step in and introduce more classic rock feel to the music.”Bozhidar Mihaylov, Pro-Rock Magazine
“Second on stage were Chaplin’s Dream. The very first guitar sounds riveted the attention and held it until the end of their short but expressive set. The band gave the audience a deep impression of professionalism and gathered many new fans and friends.”WeRock.bg
