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.
Don't Metal With Evil
This is a legendary metal album from the glory days! Originally recorded in '84, the album has been long sought after by collectors worldwide. This is a fantastic US metal release in the vein of Malice, Metal Church and Motley Crue with a good dose of horror drenched themes throughout. The album was reissued back in 1997 via Molten Metal and now Pure Steel has reissued with 3 bonus tracks lifted from the 1990 demo. The album is also remastered by famed producer Bart Gabriel (Iron Cross, Deceased), making this a must-have for fans of old school American metal.
