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.
Raw and thrashy metal from these Ohio veterans
These Ohio rivetheads have been around since 1983, but much more active since their break from hiatus in 1999. Since then the band has put out a couple of EPs and three full-length efforts including this new one, 'Decibel Casualties'. Like last year's album it is released by Pure Steel. Fans of the early days of Overkill, when Blitz and the boys were dirty and raw power metal, will worship at the metal mantle of Destructor. Fast riffage, semi-thrashy vocals and a firm grasp of 80s Midwest traditionalism. Watch the ear drums!
Recommended for fans of: October 31, early Overkill, and Axemaster
