“Manuel, “Camino Desconocido” – All instrumental, Manuel Urgulies shows off some serious guitar chops here, with a soaring and piercing metal-rock piece that manages to reel off a full suite of approaches in a tight 4:17. If you’re looking to catch him in the wild, find him playing guitar for Xander Nelson’s band. Good chance they give him a solo or two.” - Portland Phoenix
A composition with very intricate parts and a display of merging multiple genres together. Without a question, the track features guitar parts that can only be done by a musician who has mastered his instrument. Loved how the composition faded out to a clean guitar theme in the end. It sets a nice mood and you kind of want to click that Play button again just because of that.” - RED Rock Magazine
