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.

Blackened death that offers up some fine metal
Ordoxe is labeled as a black metal band and I'd like to go ahead and state that is somewhat of a misnomer. They have elements of black metal to them but would fall more in the blackened death metal genre than just traditional black metal. Nitpicking aside, 'Towards Eternity' which is the band's sixth album, provides plenty of enjoyably listenable moments and lots and lots of riffs. The guitar work on the album uses a mix of thrash, black, and death metal, each clearly definable by the tone and style of guitar playing. There are some really chuggy riffis and some pretty nifty noodling that happens on the album. The vocals are a mix of blackened thrash and death growls layered over top of each other, giving you a push/pull effect of sorts. Production is pretty decent and this is just a fun album to throw on when you're moving stuff around or just want something that's high energy.
