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.
La Voie Du Sang
Black metal debut that is sure to turn some heads
Diktatur have captured my attention with their debut album 'La Voie Du Sang'. The songs range from 3 to 9 minutes in length and the band does a decent job at keeping your interest throughout songs that reach the 6 minute mark or longer. There were a few times I found my mind straying only to have it brought right back to attention with a slight little adjustment to the guitar tone and pace. I was quite impressed with Diktatur's debut release and have a feeling that fans of the black metal genre will soon be taking notice of this band and deservedly so.
