“Cortez closed out the night by just unleashing a set of heavy fucking rock in the vein of Unida. That’s really the best comparison I can even possibly make, honestly. It’s on that level. If people don’t want to acknowledge it, it’s their loss. These tunes are rock solid, and the band delivering them is top notch. Heavy melodic riff rock at its absolute finest. Listen or be a dolt, it’s up to you. Yeah, heavy rock is fine. Nothing to fucking worry about here.” – Darryl Sheppard
