“We live in an age where bands trying to emulate the Rock Gods of the 70’s and 80’s are two-a-penny, almost all of them fail. Scorpion Child are different. Having heard them and having had the pleasure of seeing them every night on tour, I can confirm that Scorpion Child are the real deal. Thunderous drums, huge riffs, quality songs and in Aryn Jonathan Black, a singer and frontman that brings to mind Robert Plant AND Paul Rodgers…………Scorpion Child are destined for greatness!” // Ben Ward, ORANGE GOBLIN
“…Scorpion Child is a present-day, psychedelic, hard rock band that pulls influences from Zeppelin and Rainbow. All of their songs are ridiculously well-composed and they put on an incredible live performance. If you’ve never seen them, I highly suggest you make it out to their next show. This band conveys anything but your average arena-rock concert experience.” // LA Metal Siege (US)
