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.
Burn the Serum
Razor & Tie
Southern California rockers Kyng have delivered a damn good rock album with their latest release. With a sound that's an amalgam of Clutch, Fireball Ministry and their own, this album is awesome. Great riffs, killer vocals and some face melting solos will have you pumping your fist in the air. Tracks like "Lost One", "Electric Halo" and "The Ode" will have you tapping your feet and bobbing your head in no time. While considered Stoner metal, Kyng is just about rocking and delivering a good time. They've succeeded tenfold with "Burn the Serum". Go get this album.
