5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
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.

10/14/2017 - Review by: Greg Watson
An array of styles and entirely too many instrumentals
Bands that throw in a mish mash of styles really keep me interested to see what's coming next and Burning Dogma definitely keep the interest levels high on 'No Shores of Hope'. From early 90's death and black metal, prog, modern melodic metal, Swedish Death and a few others, you won't be lacking for variety. The vocals tend to follow a clean/growl formula and the track "Skies of Grey" features female vocals that are just superb. The big drawback on the album is the overtly huge amount of instrumentals. It seems each song is followed by an instrumental and it really disrupts the flow and ability to get into the music fully.
