Let me be the first to say that Perfect Shade Of Black meets and exceeds all of said expectations...

- PureGrainAudio

Margarita sings circles around so many other vocalists in the industry today; both male and female." "Dave Bates is a beast on the guitar as his soaring solos are epic in composition and bring a lot of classic elements to the game.

- RockRevolt Magazine

The band is fronted by absolutely stunning Margarita Monet, who captivated the place the moment she stepped on that stage. Guitarist, Dave Bates is the epitome of sheer effortless virtuosity; this guy will make all guitar players either Idolize or hate him, as there are very few guitarists on this Earth that can shred like Bates.
