Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
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.
Heavy melodic rock from Norway
This Norwegian act formed in 2014, releasing their debut album, 'Shanghaied', in 2015. Ammunition is singer Age Sten Nilsen (ex-Wig Wam), drummer Magnus Ulfstedt (Eclipse) and guitarist Jon Petterson. The band have already found success in 'Wrecking Crew', a charting single in Europe. Overall, this is heavy melodic rock, dipping into the 80s AOR sounds. Kudos to the flavorable 'Freedom Fighter' with it's April Wine feel. I like this, but not sure how much I'd spin it. Any other decade...this is probably remarkable.
