5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.

3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

  • You can teach an old dog new tricks



  • Jorge Juraschek is the last remaining member of Germany's Warrant. The band began in 1983 and released their debut, 'The Enforcer', in 1985. Nearly thirty years later that album receives it's follow-up record in 'Metal Bridge' via Pure Steel. Where the 80s version of the act was a speed metal donnybrook, this aged version shows us a more mature effort. The arrangements are slower with more rigid riffs and grooves while Juraschek has improved drastically as a vocalist. "Don't Get Mad Get Even" and "Nyctophobia" are consistent mid-tempo offerings that are arranged with addictive chorus parts and Juraschek's sharp vocal presence. "Helium Head" is a more modern sensibility, a faster cut that develops from thrash to power metal while wrapped in an alternative delivery. Overall 'Metal Bridge' does not disappoint and proves that you can teach an old dog new tricks.
