Maximum Metal Rating Legend
Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
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.
Raw and fast-tempo thrash metal from Denmark
Man, I know you don't judge a book by it's cover but Mario Lopez's (Iron Kobra, Game Over) artwork is sheer perfection. Love the old-school Indiana Jones look. But, what's inside? Intensity. Bottled intensity. This EP features two original tracks and two covers (Misfits, Maiden). "Megalodon" is an over-the top opener with some rougher vocals and fast-as-lightning riffs and drums. The highlight for me is the second cut, "Styx Demon", which has a more traditional new wave feel in a Motorheadish way. Killer video btw for "Styx Demon".
Recommended for fans of: Older Kreator and Sodom
