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.

If you're a diehard Hate Eternal fan like I am, the first thing you'll notice about Infernus is the awesome production something that was really lacking on the last two HE releases. Eric Rutan & company really bring the thunder on this one, creating some of the most epic death metal that I've heard in a long time. New drummer Chason Westmoreland absolutely kills it with his precision blast beats and double bass mastery. Eric's vocals are as sick as ever and the riffs throughout Infernus are some of his best ever. J.J. Hrubovcak's bass is as audible as ever and his efforts are the backbone of this album. This is death metal at its best.
