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.

Napalm Death has enjoyed a lengthy 33 year history and it definitely doesn't feel as if they've lost the extreme edge that has always made them a great band. On "Apex Predator-Easy Meat", Vocalist Barney Greenway's voice is recognizable but there's a bit more going on than on previous albums. Ranging from scary screams, to more a death metal range, this listener is liking the different ranges that Barney provides here. As always, there's a classic punk vibe to a lot of Napalm Death, coupled with grinding parts or intense speed. While there is variation in "AP-EM", it's not enough to add to the collection of great grind releases.
