Ornimental "Red, White, ...And Wrath" - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2021/04/10/ornimental-red-white-and-wrath/
Danny Perry may not be a voice that slips immediately from the tongue of even a dyed in the wool heavy metal fan; but not only is the guitar maestro polishing two Emmy’s for the Video Game Concert, Perry is also instrumental in hard rock/heavy metal band Ornimental who have just delivered their sophomore album ‘Red, White, …and Wrath’.
For a band led by a man steeped in film and video game score, it is no surprise that ‘Red, White…’ sticks almost rigidly to this formula. What the listener gets with this album is an intense hard rock album which takes in many elements of contemporary American stadium metal that oozes melody and commercial appeal. However, ‘Red, White…’ is quite a slog of an album, it is long and is guilty of ‘genre jumping’; one minute this a record of hard rock, followed by heavy metal and then moves into territories better suited towards 30 Seconds to Mars and Pantera. Yet, where this album particularly excels are the short interludes of dialogue between each track, these may be short, but they are intense, following the story of a young girl, her demons and the consequences; it does run like a soundtrack to movie, but that is what is endearing about ‘Red, White…’ it implores you to continue, just to listen to the story and even without the music, it would still be gripping.
There isn’t anything that you will not heard before here and without the storyline interludes, it would actually be quite dull, but for a contemporary concept album, it’s pretty decent. - Metal Digest

"Being a heavy supporter of local music, I am still baffled how this band has flown under my radar for so long. Well, this was my virgin foray into what Ornimental had to offer and found myself absolutely mesmerized. Their sound is very heavy at times with times of clean atmosphere, providing the listener with a tasteful and flowing direction of music and lyrical intent. The set included “ Escape With Me ”, “ Black Sabbath ”, “ Encage ” and “ Love Thy Enemy ” which accurately showcases the outright talent of individual players and how well they play together. The accurate and speedy feet of the drummer Julio Garcia along with the chorded and/or slap style bass lines of Sully provide a strong foundation for the impossibly complex guitar work and semi-clean and clean vocals of Ariel and Danny to navigate. In the middle of the show, Danny Perry even took five minutes to “noodle” on his axe. Noodle? Whatever… This man is a monster! A polished, five minute solo interspersed with Van Halen and Dime is “noodling” most guitarists would aspire to play within any song on stage. That being said, all members have great stage presence and administer bone crushing music that engages and entertains as well, if not better than any band I have seen. Ornimental being one of the two bands I had not had the pleasure of hearing before, definitely gained at least one big fan very quickly! Super freaking band!" - Odyssey, Metal Nexus
