"The soundtrack to a magical, majestic, dark fairy tale." - Jennifer Layton, Reviewer, Indie-Music.com, USA
"Listen to this exquisite masterpiece -- or rather, "math-terpiece" -- of intricate mathematical song arrangements that unfold like infinite fractals of sound. These New Age/prog rock hybrids bring to mind Swedish art rocker Bo Hansson as well as Gary Gygax's Deities & Demigods. Best listened to while cloaked. Huzzah!" - Eric Shea, Rhapsody.com
Airplay in the US, Brazil, France, Canada, the U.K., Australia and eight major cities in Latvia! The buzz continues to grow. __

"Synth bagpipes with a string-like quality evoke elements of the Scottish Highlands as well as the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle - a Celtic atmosphere with folk dance, yet still containing a thread of statelyness. ... Piano and synth with guitar solo touches to great effect in the Mike Oldfield style! ... Thanks, an enjoyable journey." - Dallas Simpson, Binaural Location Sound Artist, United Kingdom
"This is the new age 'Spartacus' brought to you by Hammer Films. The shadow of Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman loom large in this concept album. You supply the vision and Peter will supply the soundtrack. This is 'true' Goth without the guitars or the vocals 'Goth before Goth' if you will ... DANCE OF THE DRUIDS will take you back to a forgotten time. This music is for 'purists' of bygone elements. Attribute it to your nearest religious icon or your local dungeon. Can't wait to hear his follow up.." J-Rock! Music Journalist and Host of Rock Solid Pressure and The Songwriters Network
"Peter Maizitis' work "Dance of the Druids" is a reflection of the passion and integrity that causes people to make music in the first place. An intricate labour of love, a body of work which no main stream artist would dare to concieve of, worked upon and completed like a life fufilled." - Simon Knight, DJ, SubFM, 90.7 FM and internet, 12 March 2003, Melbourne, Australia.
"And now in the program "Classic" you will meet the composer Peteris Maizitis and music from his album "Druid dances". Peteris Karlis Maizitis, born in a Latvian family in America 48 years ago, in due time was into Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, studied the possibilities and ways in electronic music at Cleveland State University with professor Bubalo and spinned the records of Emerson, Lake & Palmer... Work at the CD "Druid Dances" was commenced at the beginning of the 90s, but the decisive impulse to finish this project was given by the death of the Princess of Wales Diana 3 years ago on August 31, 1997. The "Druid Dances" were dedicated "In Memoriam". This music is a piece from the fairy-tale of your childhood and the ability of grown-up folks to reproduce and hold it. It could happen once upon a time, in a faraway country, where mystery, magic, mystic and music were ruling. And now the ancient Celtic priests have arrived in a new age, in the music called New Age." - Edvards Lavrinovics, DJ, National Latvian Radio
