Maximum Metal Rating Legend
Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
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.
Fantastic blend of both bm and industrial styles
When it comes to industrial black metal, I tend to think of Kovenant and cringe mightily. But with Gorgonea Prima, I've found some industrial black metal that I can totally get behind. 'Brownfields' and its subsequent songs will worm its way into your head, take up residence and refuse to leave whenever you try to evict it. The industrial portions are used to enhance the black metal roots of the album and the songs are a fantastic blend of both styles. You really get some quality black metal as well and the vocals seal the deal. I highly suggest giving this album a spin.
