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.

Canada's thrash metal veterans return once more for a speedy romp through the yards of 80s past glory. Props to the band for never giving in for a second, maintaining an actual consistent line-up for two consecutive records on Massacre. "Death Machine" unfortunately is just wretched, an album that sounds one dimensional in blender form. This is void of any highs or lows and the same speed from power on to off. Some may really love this considering it is the day and age for this kind of retro fare. For me personally this is just grueling on the ears and begs for a change of pace somewhere throughout the ten track presentation. Color me bored.
