Since its inception, Within Reasons has performed in NE Rockz, Beerfest, Metal-o-Honour, Free Soul '13, Rock Rising and Confluence among others, and have always been appreciated for their catchy and groovy music and unique attitude.
The band's primary influences include Godsmack, Mudvayne, Alice In Chains, As I Lay Dying, Alterbridge, Paparoach, Deftones, Creed, Payable On Death according to Gautam, Moniroop, and Jamatia. Gautam has cited Sully Erna as his primary influence. The overall sound of the band sounds similar to the sound of Godsmack's Faceless Record.
