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.

BM meets shoegaze in this album that deals with a person becoming a tree
Germany's Nemus offer up one of the more intriguing concept albums I've heard in a while with 'Wald-Mensch'. Conceptually, the album deals with an individual out taking a nap in the woods, only to be pulled under the earth and brought back as a tree. It's one of the strangest concepts I've ever heard of. But strangeness aside, this album is a great listen. Taking some cues from classic black metal and mixing in elements of shoegaze, I was nodding along to the slower paced riffs and shredding some serious air when the tempo picked up. The album is entirely in German so I had to look for a translation of the songs but even without that, just listening to the album, you can feel the story progress based on the emotive and powerful vocals. Definitely a different feel for black metal but it's a feel I'm totally good with.
