Overall Impression: Hermetic Seals bears an incredibly original and undeniably authentic sound - and their original work, Chasing The Moon, is bursting with entrancing musicality!  Lush instrumental soundscapes support dense vocal harmonies and evocatively reflective lyricism to make Chasing The Moon a song worth losing yourself in, and the musical prowess of Richard Fronapfel is more than enough to warrant a replay or ten! Strongest Point(s): Amazing musicianship!  Sincerely, there's a competence and artisanship to the sounds and structures of this song that set it apart.  Wonderful vocal deliveries, perfectly blending the dynamic contrasts with just the right amount of energy to keep listener's attention.  Excellent sound-scaping, with the atmospheric effects really filling out the space.  Great harmonies, and a memorable melody. This is stellar songwriting! Target Audience Appeal: Fans of classic balladeers will find their fingerprints all over Hermetic Seals' sound, and the amount of originality and skill on display in Chasing The Moon is enough to ensnare listeners from all kinds of backgrounds!  Rich with emotional gravity and musical expression, Chasing The Moon is a brilliant work of modern songwriting, and Hermetic Seals is a name to follow going forward!  - Jon W.

"Because the songs are so good and the performances so real, it sounds like a classic album that never got released. This is a melodic tour-de-force with some of the best hooks I have EVER heard...a truly inspired and original collection of pop wonders"

Composer, Singer, Pianist

Kennedy sang for the band Anthrax in its formative stages when they were merely a garage band. In 1985 he answered an ad in "The Music Paper" and became the lead vocalist for the band Hittman. They released two albums through SPV/Steamhammer records "Hittman" in 1989 and "Vivas Machina" in 1993. Both albums were critically acclaimed. The band were featured on the covers of Kerrang! (getting a near perfect KKKK 1/2) and many other international rock magazines herald them as the next force in Hard rock.
