“Promises and Lies is a really strong metal album” – Metal.de

“This is prime, grade ‘A’ American heavy metal that follows the big sound started by the likes of Ted Nugent and later Armored Saint and more recently Black Label Society – metal based on heaps of raw sustained guitar that speak attitude in bunches.”
– Battle Helm

“If you’re into shit that is wicked heavy with an 80s vibe to it, then you need to check out “Promises and Lies” on October 19th. If you heard Jonny Lokke’s first two albums, you know that Johnny Lokke brings the rock with shiny, leather clad fury.” – Ectomag

Johnny Lökke is a talented, mostly one man metal project that delivers the goods, speeding along like a bullet train aimed at the heart of 80s metal. Lökke bringing the noise like Rob Halford, Wade Black, and Tim Owens, hell-bent for leather in all its shining glory. – MaximumMetal.com
“JOHNNY LOKKE is one of those rare musicians (guitarist / vocalist) that writes, records and performs top quality heavy metal music from the confines of his own home studio. Being that JOHNNY LOKKE is a major fan of classic old school heavy metal icons such as JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, DIO and up and coming acts PRIMAL FEAR, CAGE and SINNER, we know musically where he wants to belong and I will be damned if he does not deserve to be alongside all of the previously mentioned acts.” – Desert Rock Promotions

“Looking back to the 80’s a la Keel and Judas Priest, Lökke is equally adept on guitar and vocals – a rarity to say the least.Hitting the high notes in true Halford fashion and whittling the wood of his guitar away with performances ranging from chunky to flashy to rocking.” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles

“He is one of the best riff writers today.” – ElectricBasement.com

“Did somebody say ‘Metal?’ Johnny Lökke is a really fun throwback to the good old days of the Sunset Strip and Headbanger’s Ball.” – Starpolish.com

“This is really quality stuff in the style of JAG PANZER, JACK STARR, HELSTAR…” – Strutter Zine
