“Now it’s not often one is totally gobsmacked by a band…I was not expecting what I heard at the ROCKPILE WEST on Friday… The Singer’s voice, WAAAAY bigger than she was. The entire place went silent, attention drawn to the stage the crowd started to move forward to see the band… I sat in stunned silence, we were all so mesmerized. Vinyl Ambush is a band to watch out for…. a tightly knit group of very talented and accomplished musicians who appear to be perfectly in sync with each other”. Pat Blythe – New Discoveries

“Vinyl Ambush energized the room with their stupendous originals featuring bassist Corwin Bjelic, drummer Jack Laing, guitarist Pedro Alvarado, and acclaimed front woman Belle Matthews, as they exploded their punky metal uniqueness. Cranking out their songs ‘Curiosity’, unleashing ‘Alien’ & ‘Hollywood Casualties’. Blending in a brand new song ‘Occupation’, then introducing their most popular piece, ‘Let It Rain’ (which appeared on Dark Matter TV on the Space Channel in 2017), just letting er rip with hit after hit including my fave, ‘Talk Sick’ right into the newest song ‘Space Head.’ Grab their autographs soon as these kids are destined for stardom. Catch them in a city nearest you” Deb Draper ‐‐ The Wire Magazine
