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.

6. Sick Man
What is going on around the Northern U.S. and the Canadian area? I keep expecting a certain sound from that area, but each disc I hear is completely the opposite.

Drillpoint's 6-song CD is all about super-chunky riffs and shrill guitars and you're about as apt to find a melody line in here as you'll find a virgin on a porno set.

"Snapperhead" stands out as the best track for me with a rapid fire vocal delivery that sounds like Dave Draiman on crank. The middle set of songs tended to lose me somewhat with their medium pace, but the faster rhythms of the last song "Sick Mind" give it a lot of more punch that the others.

Bottom Line: It's all about the E-string, baby.
