“Hornet plays riffs that make you want to ride a motorbike down a staircase. Riffs that make you want to
pour whisky onto your cereal. Riffs that make Hornet a lot of fun.”
Kerrang! Magazine

“The music is excellent and the influences of rock and metal are obvious. ‘Bite Down’ and ‘Storm The Gates’ are the tracks to listen to.”
Big Cheese Magazine

“Skies Are Falling is solid. It shunts like a bastard, chiming perfectly with the rhythm of a hot diesel engine set to cruise control.”
Powerplay Magazine

“‘Skies Are Falling’ packs a punch of metal with a lighter twist. There’s an element of punk here too, which makes this band more modern and unique than some of their metal compatriots.”
Fireworks Magazine
