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.
Solid self-titled debut of Scandinavian BM with a little bit of a twist
Nordjevel materializes out of a blizzard of ice and frozen winds. The band offer the best of Scandinavian black metal with a little bit of a twist and deliver a really solid self-titled debut. Icy soundscapes and frosty vocals really pull the album together and deliver a great genre offering for fans of both current and old school BM. Standout tracks are 'The Funeral Smell', 'Denne Tidlose Krigsdom' and 'Blood Horns'. An extra bonus of their version of 'Raining Blood' ends things on a very blackened thrashy note.
