Wading through a sea of new bands there are few that have made as positive impact on me as A Sound of Thunder. My first exposure was when I saw them opening for my very first Raven show. I was already pretty amped for the show because as a lifelong Raven fan to finally be able to see them was a dream come true. Typically under these circumstances I don’t care who is opening, but ASoT made such an impact on me with their songs and delivery I was blown away.
For instance when lead singer Lest left and created his own band Beautiful Creatures which was actually a very underrated release, proving once more that the raspy vocals of Leste’ could still have something to offer to the world, even in that sense those two albums never got the credit they deserve.
