PRAISE FOR DEITIES
“One of the dangers with ‘nerd music’ is that the novelty of nerdy content sometimes outweighs the musicianship and universality of the songwriting. That’s not the case with Chamber Band. Musically, they’re one of the sharpest bands to ever hit the scene and, with tracks like “Lawful Neutral” and “Shapeshifter”, they strike powerful chords with fantasy roleplaying enthusiasts of every class.” – Cap Blackard, Nerdy Show
“Seriously, if you haven’t already clicked on the link to their Bandcamp page and bought this, you need to do that right now.” – Chris Helton, Dorkland
“Chamber Band completely lacks self importance and—for me at least—that’s what separates them from the ever-growing herd of Brooklyn bands… while DnD might serve as the starting point for each, it doesn’t confine the songs; it enriches them… I was reminded of Led Zeppelin, another band that never shied away from constructing little lyrical universes…” – Laura Wasson, Feast of Music
