“I can be a little critical when it comes to music, and I’m also a terrible liar. The guys in the band are all really good guys, plus Paul Coleman’s biceps are thicker than my thighs, so I really didn’t want to piss him off, because he can twist me into a pretzel. Alas, I worried for nothing. I’ve seen Graven Image live a few times, and liked them well enough, but that couldn’t have prepared me for what awaited me when i pressed the play button on this disc. I was completely blown away right from the start. The production, for having a limited budget and being self produced is very impressive. It’s a concept album so it kind of has that Operation Mindcrime feel, with the cool segues between the songs and such, and a nice mix of heavy tunes and acoustic tracks. Very well thought out and pieced together. ”

“David Mark Pearce was also named 2008’s eighth “Best Guitarist’” by Classic Rock Society Magazine in the UK for his work with the Oliver Wakeman Band,had this to say about the new GRAVEN IMAGE CD,THE FUTURE STARTED YESTERDAY. Just been listening to the killer new album by ‘Graven Image’ featuring my good friends Paul Coleman and Martin O’Brien. Its not had time to sink in just yet, how could it when I only got it last night, but more importantly it just smacked me right between the eyes like a frieght train, the one in particular that  love so far is the huge ‘No Atheist In A Foxhole’ just immense!!!!!”

“All three bands kicked things into high gear and got everyone pumped up for what was next.. GRAVEN IMAGE took the stage and blew my head off. This band impressed from the opening notes.  Amazing riffs, great songs, Pounding Drums … Spectacular Guitar Work by Paul & Scott, Bass In Your Face by Andrew all capped off by incredible vocals of Martin O’Brien who sang his ass off. I’ve never seen the band before but walked out a new fan.”
