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.
Brazilian traditional power metal that sounds German
If you see the term the "Brazilian Power Metal" you think of neo-classical shredding and really sharp rhythm guitars. Brazil's Grey Wolf doesn't do that particular sub-genre. Instead this is more akin to the German brand of Teutonic heavy metal, which for the most part is influenced by US act Manowar. Metal is truly a global phenomenon. Somewhat rough vocals, battle-march percussion and a mid-tempo charge are the tools of the trade for this act's third full-length. Recommended!
Recommended for fans of: Grand Magus, Manowar, Amon Amarth, Bathory, Iron Kobra
