Utopia - Stalker
"For fans of virtuosic playing and extreme metal styling Stalker will get your faces gurning with appreciation." – Musipedia of Metal
"Grippingly imaginative and coherent. This is intelligent music indeed." – Ave Noctum
"High pitched screams into alcoves of tech metal and doom.’" – Metal Hammer
"As a work of creative extremity, it’s likely Stalker will be unparalleled in 2021." - A Certain Taste
"It’s prog rock on gonzo steroids having a meth party with Hunter S Thompson. Frame that around avant-garde jazz sensibilities, The Dillinger Escape Plan / Converge style tech metal, doom flavours with huge chunky riffs and it should be warned that Utopia are not for the faint of heart." – The Sleeping Shaman
"Growling, technical, occasionally atmospheric, interruption-heavy songmanship with experimentation, discordance and jazz bits are where it’s at. Stalker is grippingly imaginative and coherent. This is intelligent music indeed." – Ave Noctum
Stalker is the debut album by UTOPIA.
