MYSTERION REVIEW, STENCIL MAGAZINE (UK)
"As we all know, music is ever-changing. What was once incredibly popular is done away with the next day to make room for something new. But for absolutely sure, there will always be room for good hard rock. Hidden History are showing to everyone that, even though at the moment they may be a small-time band from Seattle, they have all the makings of greatness that have marked so many of their influences before them.
If you have ever listened to Muse, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, or even Linkin Park and liked any of it, you will definitely like this album. The fat riffs are in there, mixed with some decent electronica work. The electro elements are not always particularly overt, but the way Hidden History sometimes mix them in with the rest of the music, as opposed to the intros to Callous Heart or Mirror where they show them off a bit more, is fairly sublime.
The vocals sound like a mix of One-X era Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace) and the screamier side of Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) circa 2006. The blend of melodic, soulful vocals when it suits the music, and the brief screaming moments when the tempo and aggression picks up is as close to perfect as you can really get.
On the whole, Mysterion is a fantastic album, one that any of the bands already mentioned here would have been proud to have made themselves."
