  • Tony Z from San DiegoSuch a great jam by an underrated band. These guys deserved way more success statewide then they got. It was our loss
  • Royal Mayne Hopper Iii from Las Vegas NvI have always liked this song a lot. It always seemed like the theme song for a Gothic show about vampires or witches ..
