Check out what others are saying about The Beckoning.....

"The Beckoning is a study in extremes and opposites that really works where so many bands usually fall into cacophony." - Down The Line Zine (U.S)

"The Beckoning are one of the better bands that I've come upon lately" - Battle Helm Magazine (Sweden)

"what a cool debut by this amazing Canadian group that fuses so many disparate elements, from majestic black metal and symphonic metal with a heavy dose of pretty sophisticated progressive hard rock for good measure! Killer combination of male and female vocals." -Prog Metal Zone

"Despite some of the theoretical incongruity possible by mixing so many styles, The Beckoning have managed to craft coherent pieces that flow. Transitions abound and work seamlessly. Vocals are definitely a strong suit as well. The female vocals are beautiful and haunting while the male vocals growl and snarl in black/death metal fashion but also work when they shift to clean singing. Musicianship is excellent throughout and production and mixing are very well done."-The Metal Resource (Holland)

"If you're up for some progressive extreme metal you should definitely check this out! This is quality stuff! " Kjell-Ivar Aarli (Legacy Of Emptiness)
