“'Hear Me' contains eight well written and composed tracks that capture the true spirit of the Symphonic Metal genre in all its glory and is creditable debut album from Revontulet. The band are obviously talented musicians and this shows in the quality of the tracks which are well mixed and produced with a perfect balance between the music and the vocals. The stand out points for me are the huge orchestrations and the vocals of front woman Alexandra Revontulet which are powerful, rising and controlled and a pleasure to listen to. All in all a solid debut from a band i'd recommend you keep an eye on as i'm Revontulet will go from strength to strength. If you are a fan of quality Symphonic Metal 'Hear Me' is certainly an album for you.”

“You will have to avoid Revontulet if you think metal cannot be made with a gentle touch, without even a modicum of grimness and darkness. On the opposite, if melodic uplifting is how you want your heavier music to be played, this one is an excellent and unexpected surprise.”

“This is a very high quality, listener-oriented project. The music is catchy and tuneful, the voice is tender and attractive, the combination of heavy guitars and soft keyboards at its best, as usual. The album is listened in the same breath, and this music is perfect for any mood: you can dream, you can rejoice and even dance a little, you can be sad, you can start to fantasize and visualize parallel worlds: the boundless seas, endless forests, mysterious labyrinths, where you can get lost, but the lovely voice of the enigmatic beauty and the never fading light of the beacon will always take you out of there...”

“...The Russians have done a great job creating vocal and music melodies but I think this should be expected since Russia has a long tradition in Classical music. There are some up-tempo moments, with heavier guitars and intense drumming, which are equally great as they are beautifully combined with the symphonic instruments, changing the album’s atmosphere. The powerful operatic voice by Alexandra Revontulet is another strong element pushing the music into a higher level...”

“...This album defines itself as one of the pleasant surprises of the beginning of the year in terms of symphonic metal. REVONTULET officiates in common roads, but outperforms many competitors with a neat and elegant approach. ”

“You get hooked with the band by the presence of Alexandra, with her exquisite and versatile Mezzo-Soprano vocal range, with some high and operatic tones that let her voice flow naturally adapting to the style... The song I liked most from this album was ''Eternal Autumn'', perhaps due to the excellent keyboard interlude drawing byzantine melodies.”

“ Revontulet create a very interesting form of symphonic metal with this album with a darker sound than most bands of the genre, and the production is very professional sounding along with lyrics that cover darkness and nature themes.”
