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.
Blut Aus Nord
Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue With The Stars
I think it's almost safe to say that Blut Aus Nord are finished with the discordant, manic noise mayhem that was present on such releases as Thematic Emanation of Archetypal Multiplicity and Mort and have returned to their true Black Metal roots with Memoria Vetusta II. Whereas Odinist saw them shifting gears toward a more typical approach to Black Metal song writing, Memoria Vetusta II shows a full return. Although not quite as good as The Mystical Beast of Rebellion, Memoria Vetusta will please Blut Aus Nord fans that have been waiting for their return! Wait no longer - Blut Aus Nord are back!
