"These are photos from the frontline, photos that tell you everything about performance and rock ‘n’ roll, that capture the coiled snake energy of the form. Cormac understands the power of performance and is deeply immersed in the sound and fury. Without that understanding you have snapshots, but with it you have art and danger.[…] Only someone steeped in the dark stuff, obsessed with the dark energy and full of the dark matter can do this."

John Robb, Journalist, Author, Songwriter, TV pundit
"White powdery skin against eternal dark. It’s Jaz Coleman from Killing Joke – the shot is angled and close up and he looks reptilian.[…] [The artists] all perform in limbo, protruding from the thick black soup of dark. [The] subjects are plucked out, isolated, abducted from the band that is their powerhouse. Motion and sequence stop dead in frozen moments. Figgis traps a snap of vision that is to the performer’s overall appearance what a snip of sound wave is to their tune."
John Flemming, Irish Times
“One can almost feel the tension and emotion dripping from these pages; if you can remember that feeling that you experienced, the first or best times you saw a band or an artist that moved you, set your spine tingling and the hairs on the back of your neck on end, that’s what Figgis brings to his photography. Some of these remind me of the best (and worst) of war photography-they are simply that alive and intuitive that you can’t help but be moved by them.”
Joe Whyte, Vive Le Rock Magazine


“Some of the most beautiful pieces in the book are the audience captures and the artists interactions with the fans. The energy from these images is electric and allows the viewer to feel a part of the event, highlighting Figgis’s ability to sense what is important and documenting it.”
Hels Millington, Louder Than War


“I was at some of the gigs featured in this debut photography collection, but having spent time with Cormac’s incredible book, I wish I had attended more. Cormac’s got an eye, he can take a photo, he lives and breathes music and performance and he has an innate ability to know when to press the shutter.”
Paul McDermott, The GOO
