Maximum Metal Rating Legend
5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
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.

Extreme metal that suffers a little in the production department
So with 'Omnipotence', I was a little disappointed overall with this 5-song EP. The music is pretty decent, a good mix of chunky and technical with a bit of melody thrown in. The vocals are a mix of growls, rasps and snarls, just what you would expect on an extreme metal release. The production is where things really hit a snag. The overall tone is fairly muddled with everything sounding like it's being played at a lower frequency and makes it really hard to hear anything clearly at all. If the production was more crisp and clean, this would be a damn good EP but with the production issues present, it was hard for me to really get into.
