"Avishay Mizrav’s debut album, Forgotten Melodies, is a whirlwind of rock and power ballads that remind you of bands such as Journey or Styx, but in a way that doesn’t need words to tell the story.
"Forgotten Melodies is an incredible album. Every song has its own feel - from the moving piece of Casualties of War with such amazing build ups to upbeat songs like Knight Templar. Awesome rock.
"Simply put "Forgotten Melodies" by Avishay Mizrav is unforgettable. He takes you on a musical journey that is technically phenomenal, but he still makes you FEEL the music
"Like math rock on steroids, guitarist/keyboardist/bassist/engineer/producer Avishay Mizrav invites his fans to experience an over-the-top session of electric guitar self-gratification–Avishav Mizrav style!
"Forgotten Melodies is an original rock anthem that worships at the alter of nerd-rock gods, arpeggiated guitar riffs, squealing keyboard melodies and the chorus pedal.
"This album is an absolute gem of progressive rock and metal fusion."
