# author: Berserker '67 If you are an old headbanger like
me raised with deep purple, led zeppelin, megadeth and all
those guitar heroes this is your CD with a very personal
sound and production, though. Kewl!
Khigh rocks! author: Stephen Olssen ™ I listened to the
mp3 samples and bought the CD right after, guess what? Khigh
rocks!!! The band is consistent and dedicated to a genre
that I couldn't describe precisely, but that takes you away!

Impressive CD author: Rebecca I'd like to drop a line to
show my appreciation of this masterpiece. Good music, good
vocals and catchy tunes. Get it.
The Real Thing! author: Diana Wilson My compliments to these

so rare to find a band with a personality like this! My
suggestion, get it!

Awesome CD, a must-have for all the guitarists! author:
Dani O' Neal Who said "rock is dead"? We were missing some
real hard rockers like these with such amazing skills, sweat
and guts: these guys outperform many more talked about acts.
I can't wait for their next release. Rock on!

translation of the review)
We immediately understood this is an absolutely
unconventional band since the promo we received a few months
ago... KHIGH are surely hard rock, but this definition represents
just a small part of an act that seems to be inspired by the
muse of unpredictability! Their debut album is made of compositions
astonishingly disparate and complex. "Too Late" is where we
can find the heaviest moments and the guitar of Kris (leading
element of the entire album) weaves effective riffs before the
following "Lullaby for Mankind" that starts with a rock oriented
mood and develops a spectacular change to embrace again solid
riffs, a dreamy arpeggio and a "liquid" solo. "Dream Awake"
is awesome in its simplicity and it's a perfect example of how
KHIGH can merge quite different styles and sounds with a very
pleasant result. This is also due to the ability of Kris who
sings in many different ways alternating nasal with crystal
clear vocals and the title-track proves this attitude once again.
"Lovesong" is incredible, with a classic heavy metal riff and
arguably the best solo of the album with a Kris in perfect shape.
You can understand how eclectic this album is by listening to
"Dedicated To", a track difficult to describe, prog? Funky?
Heavy? Probably a bit of all... but, let's face it, all this
talk about this or that style is useless and what remains is
just good music! It's really a pleasure to see that there are
still artists brave enough to play what they want ignoring the
rules of music business and Wise Hedonist is exactly this: an
unconventional album that may be appreciated by prog lovers,
virtuosos and also headbangers who like classic metal (how long
have you been waiting for your favorite band to play a riff
like Cacophonic Nature's? And what to say about the good Winnie
Foxx?), but this is a CD that must be listened to many times
to understand all the different aspects. I need to spend some
more words on "Cacophonic Nature" and the soloing of Kris that
creates melodies rich of feeling always far from being just
a technical exercise or a bunch of scales and representing a
high speed complement to ultra difficult riffs! The only one
that comes to my mind to compare Kris to is the great Impellitteri!
The first part of this record is more experimental while the
second half is heavier with a solid Winnie Foxx in "4 My" and
a splendid Kris behind the microphone. Grand finale with "Latin
Truths" where the guitarist showcases his passion with an acoustic
guitar. Last words of praise for Power Play Records who invested
a lot in this high quality booklet. An unpredictable record...
I don't expect to explain it completely with this long review,
but I hope to strike some interest and curiosity, for everyone
who's tired of the same old shit this CD is more than recommended,
it's well worth it, believe me!

«KHIGH have already developed a very personal style... Strengthened
by an awesome Kris behind the microphone, often able to reach
the peak on the track of the hard rock of the first 90's...
Precious bass lines too...»
BY: SLAM ROCKS
«KHIGH are a melting-pot of metal riffs, sharp vocals and rock
melodies that make this band an interesting and somewhat innovative
one... Kris demonstrates to be and eclectic and prepared guitarist
that more than once reminded me of Marty Friedman...»
BY: SILENT SCREAM
«KHIGH demonstrate to have good writing capabilities used to
develop a strong hard rock with clear influences from the 80's,
also for what concerns the structure of the songs with gutsy
riffing and cool solos. Most of the sound of the band depends
on the guitar style of Kris (surely a the guitar hero lover)
and on his way to sing at times similar to Alice Cooper and
