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.
Point Zero Solution
Melodic death metallers Deals Death are quite an interesting group. Falling into the death metal category, the band is quite different from that category. Musically you can definitely tell that death metal is a big influence. But the similarities end there. The vocals are barked and delivered in more of a black metal shriek as opposed to the guttural grunts and growls. Most tracks also feature backing choral melodies which adds an eerie element in the beginning. After working through the album however, the choral parts become increasingly annoying and take away from the album. Preview this album before buying.
