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.

This Brazilian act continue a dominating performance on this third album to date. Hard to imagine this band soaring so far below the radar with these excellent vocal lines and polished riffs. The band sound better than ever on "Blind Ride" but are slowing to a degree with each release. Drums are maniacal yet still glue it all together in a heavy handed hard rock persona. This pleases Helloween and Megadeth fans with its powerful prowess verging on melodic or classic metal.
