"If you like powerful riffs, channelled aggression, melodic power metal/NWOBHM solos and strong choruses, there’s no reason why you won’t like Halcyon Way. If you’ve never heard of them before, now’s as good a time as any to take the plunge"
(Man Of Much Metal, 8.5/10)
"The twelve varied tracks are full of energy and dynamics and sound like a genius mix of power, thrash, heavy and progressive metal"
(Aardschok Magazine, 88/100)
"A journey of formidably impressive sound. It is full of meaty riffs without being monotonous. Check out “Blame” and “Slaves to Silicon.” The lead vocals are a nod to modern ’80s metal and the growling backing vocals add a modern kick in the teeth".
"They have the potential to be the next generation’s Queensryche by combining deep lyrical expositions along with a healthy hybrid of catchy progressive metal".
(Sea of Tranquility, 4.5/5)
"They are playing to a wide audience with some tunes that are bound to sink into your head with ease, yet have the chops to keep you coming back for more. Bloody but Unbowed is a mix of punchy and progressive at its best".
(Dead Rhetoric.com, 9/10)
"This has been one of the more interesting albums I have reviewed this year. This album has a lot to offer. It is a raw, in your face metal album from start to finish".
(OVERDRIVE Music Magazine)
"Halcyon Way's Bloody But Unbowed is another storming album of their hybrid heavy power progressive metal".
(Dangerdog Music Reviews, 4/5)
"For fans of up-tempo prog bands this is probably a release you cannot allow yourself to miss in 2018".
(Lords Of Metal, 84/100)
"Bloody But Unbowed is the perfect follow up to Conquer, and there is no question in my mind that people will be falling all over themselves to heap mountains of praise on this record".
(Amps and Green Screens, 9.5/10)
