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.
French Death Metal that will give you whiplash
Gohrgone churns out some of the grooviest death metal I've heard in a long time with "Finis Ixion". From start to finish, you will be banging your head with passion and consistency and might want to keep a supply of aspirin on standby. Well-constructed songs replete with the previously mentioned riffs makes this album a pure joy to listen to. I found myself throwing this on when I was looking for that album to provide me with an outlet for any built-up aggression. And if the riffs weren't enough, the vocals, production and overall quality are on point. Hail the horns for this album! \m/
