Maximum Metal Rating Legend
5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
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.

Its only the end of the world again!

Dax is back with another band. The trademark Acid Bath sound is here somewhat but the songs are more centered around a depressive theme. The lyrics are very poetic seeing as how none of them make a damn bit of sense. A remake of the old song Dead Girl is on this one from Acid Bath's Paegan Terrorism Tactics. A lot slower and just mellow as fuck. I think if our other reviewer EC heard this he would say "oh it sounds like Pink Floyd".

Granted this album is experimental and soft in many terms its still good to just sit back and take it in. The rest of the band seems to flow just as well as Dax's singing which complements the whole feel of the album. All in all I would have to say that this is one of those cds that when you leave a metal show and need something to relax to you could just pop this one in your cd player.
