"From the opening riff of 'Deceived' to final sustained piano chord of 'Exquisite Tenderness,' it is clear Red Dragon Cartel has created an album that stands amongst some of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. Infectious songs such as 'Shout It Out,' 'Wasted' and 'Slave' showcase the band’s ability to write memorable hooks and vocal melodies.
