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.

Blasphemous, venom-spewing black metal here that just pummels your eardrums into the ground with their barrage of blast beats and structural changes. From the onset it is obvious that Throcult are highly capable musicians but I was lost at times with the majority of the album cruising at light speed. Slowing it down was definitely not in their battle plans as this wall of sonic brutality levelled me. Like a student of the secret sciences, more and more was revealed to me with repeated listens. These tunes were not penned with your run of the mill, two-chord template and with lyric sheet in hand you will be sucked into the realm of the Nighthorde!!!

Bottom Line: Extreme metal fans should gobble this up!!!
