alexmoreno Love the transition from your solo to the heavy part :) and just overall your dynamics are really nice.

Greg Swiech Michael Hermes continues to impress with each new release. He creates tasteful melodic compositions with elements of orchestral, fusion and progressive rock melding into pleasing instrumental songs.

David R Great balance between shredding and melodic melodies. This single tells an incredible story, lasting 8 minutes but never getting boring. Would definitely recommend it to all audiences!

Michael Goldberg "Messenger" is a wonderfully moody piece interwoven with soulful, rhythmic technical expertise with a sharp bite to counter the seemingly mellow backing synth. There's a beautiful little passage at the 3:29 mark that captures Michael's ability to write softly and expressively and then, just as you're lulled into this lush atmosphere he's created, he drives it into the next gear with tantalizing, meaty distorted bottom-end that kicks you in the gut. I can't wait for a full-length album! Buy this!

"Messenger" (Single) being a third release contains a solid balance between composition and technicality. Difficult jazz-fusion style licks are tracked over complex cinematic atmospheres, demonstrating the musical diversity Michael Hermes has brought to the scene.
