 “Kirk Brandon is on of the UK’s best kept secrets” – Mojo

 “@kirkbrandon is one of our greatest musical geniuses” – BBC’s Jeremy Vine

“Spear of Destiny are criminally underrated and are one of Britain’s best, Boys Own, punch the air, grandiose Rock’nRoll bands” – John Robb’s Louder Than War

 “Brandon’s vocal is fuller, it is more powerful, it is more tuneful. But what impresses me more is his total clarity; not only vocally but his overall performance – he lives, breathes, screams, shakes these songs out of his body. At times he appears to be in the throws of an exorcism, bent double and shuddering rhythmically” – gettotthefront.co.uk
