"A remarkable album that awakens pleasant memories of all those guitar records that we listened to (and still listen to) with our mouths open. A surplus of imagination and talent"- ROCK HARD MAGAZINE/ GREECE

"There are seemingly no limits to his shred. Blizzard Archer is like one endless guitar solo that you actually don’t mind. The fact that Knapp continues to churn out quality releases without the benefit of a proper backing band speaks largely to his abilities"- DEAD RHETORIC MAGAZINE

"The true mark of a great album is the ability to have every song grab you from the beginning to the end and have it stick in your head all day and Blizzard Archer does that"- THE DIRTY ROOM MAGAZINE

"Any instrumental, traditional metal enthusiast will be thrilled to add Knapp's seventh solo release, "Blizzard Archer", to their collection. The Metal Maestro has prevailed"- Metal
