‘The perfect mix of Pink Floyd, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave and The Doors. 8SNAKE (formerly Francesco Fonte Band) has taken certain aspects of the aforementioned groups, and melded it together to come up with their own unique sound’

Dan AKA - Ronon

‘This band has a huge sonic footprint, I was very surprised they were a trio.

So, a band who have defied description throughout my time listening to them, fantastic, just what I want to hear, what I want to hear more of if I'm entirely honest’

Mike McLaughlin - 3 Songs Out

'Eight is unlike anything we have heard recently, defiantly refusing to adhere to any label, it possesses bass work typically found on sludge records, a vocal range worthy of the likes of Wolfmother and crisp guitar detail normally reserved for white-hot garage grunge acts. All of this may sound chaotic but it's all put together and packaged exceptionally well, delivering an attention-grabbing record.'

Metal Saves

'It's dark, it's moody, lot of things going on there, a bit of Nine Inch Nails, a bit of Nick Cave, awesome stuff’

Naomy Jeremiah - Down The Front

'Imagine Prince, Nine Inch Nails, Suede and Pink Floyd collapsing into an absinthe-induced cloud of beauty and throw in a brutally powerful rock backbone'

Howlin’ Anton Bleak
