0 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.

BM with a decidedly old school feel that will thrill some and annoy others
New York based One Master take a trip back in time to when bands like Emperor and Darkthrone were exploding on to the scene. You don't get anything envelope pushing here but what you do get is an old sound that is familiar yet also specifically attuned to One Master. The injection of the band's own interpretation of what black metal is to them really helps the album stand on its own. The old, muddled production will be familiar to many fans of the genre. Some fans will write this off as copycat metal and others will really relate to the sound. Either way, you should definitely give this one a shot.
Recommended for fans of: Emperor, Nightbringer, Nazxul
