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.
House Of Heavy
House Of Heavy
House Of Heavy come by way of Sweden with their debut on Metal Blade Europe. The group rounds out a hard rockin' style that is best suited as a modern Winger sound crossed up with some heavier straight forward riffs. I had high hopes for the band after hearing some brief song samples and honestly this release isn't bad...but it isn't great either. These days if you are a hard rock outfit from Sweden...you better bring it! The country is clogged full of the Hardcore Superstar, Crazy Lixx, Crash Diet bands and House Of Heavy isn't quite on that level.
