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.

No nonsense black metal that is sure to please
This is an album that you can listen to from start to finish without having to skip a track, a rarity these days. From opening track "The Alpha of the Antichrist" to closer "To Dare the Tower", the band mashes their foot down on the accelerator & sends you hurtling at full speed towards a giant concrete wall. Musically, you get a great mix of vintage black metal combined with the more current sound. Atonal chords, tremolo picking & heavy distortion make you feel right at home. The only drawback I had with the album was that the vocals seem to be hit and miss. This album is definitely one worth giving some time to listen to, you won't be sorry.
