Guitar Player Magazine June 2008
“Every Big Eight Column needs a crazed, fabulously technical metal madman, and Kaynan is the buckaroo this month. Lifting off from a nu-metal groove, Kaynan fires off with an impressive array of absolutely blazing harmony runs, behind the neck noises, eastern- tinged melodies, jazzy arpeggios, flamenco explosions, and other wackiness!”
- Michael Molenda- Editor N' Chief, Guitar Player Magazine, June 2008
UK's Fireworks Magazine, summer 2015
After the release of Steve's second album, Multiverse Collision, he got a very cool album review in Fireworks Magazine which also featured Ritchie Blackmore, Glen Hughes, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan and many more! Such an honor!
Music Connection Magazine, September 2015
“"Kaynan can probably play rings around most mortal guitarist, such is the quality of his lightning-fast fretwork. On the instrumental "Isla Nublar," his multiple guitar solos are indeed praise-worthy. Additionally, on the metal-sludge "Time" he shows that his singing voice can do a decent approximation of Ozzy." - Music Connection Magazine, September 2015.”
