“This hard-hitting album is a plea for compassion; a call to rise and stand up to animal cruelty and injustice. Tourniquet’s captivating Onward to Freedom is musically powerful, lyrically moving. A must-have for heavy music fans, and lovers of Creation.” – Darcy Rumble / giantsinthesound.com
“The album tackles the subject of animal cruelty head-on. Every song uses guest vocalists and guitarists to accompany Kirkpatrick’s killer drums. The guest list is impressive and the production, performances, and arrangements high-caliber. Onward to Freedom’ is solid, classic American Made Heavy Metal with plenty of skills and an important, heartfelt message. Recommended.” – chadrschulz.com
