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.

Their rock is indeed not our rock, with Fireball Ministry playing favortites with the most sincere old school metal mentality. Sure the band receive glorious critical praise and applause, and enjoy the beneficial package tour or three, but for the most part Fireball Ministry play a brand of metal that surely will be enjoyed by all spectators across the metallic realms.

Their ability to weave in and out of 70s neon lights and black exhaust is the core for the group, that rich, flamboyant background for which the band is known for. Creating walloping guitar devastation while entrancing the most "hippy" of Sabbath extremes, this LA band is really on par with the likes of Sheavy, C.O.C, and The Obsessed in terms of sheer metal grit. "Their Rock Is Not Our Rock" is the band's third effort to date and one that rumbles down the blacktop with the most slicked back, easy rider approach to metal since Stephenwolf screamed "heavy metal thunder". Just look at wicked stomps like "Sundown", "Under The Thunder", and the titanic "Spill The Demons" as exhibits for the cause, really freeing themselves of all corporate ring ropes and throwing down those massive, deeply tuned slabs of fuzz in a quest for world domination and acceptance.

Bottom Line - Fireball Ministry are probably one of the most important bands of the current state of metal affairs. Those who disagree, well they were probably never part of the brethren to begin with.
