George "Snaki" Lane: *Band Score 8.5/10* "Austria had two pleasant surprises for us this year, the first one was a Melodic Hard Rock one and came with Sergeant Steel, and the second one, now at the end of the year, is a Melodic rock one with CRIMSON LAKE! The samples we've been given are excellent and I believe that if they keep going on like this, an excellent career will be awaiting for them!"
