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.
Chariots of the Gods
Chariots of the Gods
Chariots of the Gods are Canada's latest export into the metal world. They are a hybrid of traditional & NWOAHM styles. The album is full of Hatebreed-esque breakdowns, traditional metal riffs & thrash styled solos. Musically the band is technically sound & polished. Vocally the album has death/clean & metalcore style vocals. The one issue I had with the album was the lack of variety in song style. Each song sounds the same as the last without much variation at all. For this album being self released though, the production is phenomenal. This is definitely a band to keep an eye on & the album is one to sample before going out & buying it.
