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.

Poland's Hate return with "Crvsade:Zero", a blistering 12 tracks of...well...hate and anger fueled DM. Tracks like "Death Liberator", "Leviathan" and "Hate Is The Law" are classic, cut and dry death metal. It's hard not to hear a little of Behemoth in the band but Hate are their own entity, through and through. While the album isn't anything new from the band, it is a bit more polished and a little less predictable than some of their prior releases. The production is very tight and makes the guitars, vocals and drums sound brutal. If you're looking for a good, solid death metal album, you could do with a listen to "Crvsade:Zero".
