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.
War Of Ages
War of Ages has long been a band that I've been a huge fan of. Supreme Chaos is an album that will definitely become a staple in my standard rotation. The album kicks off with one of the catchiest songs I've heard from the group, "From Ashes". The chorus alone is enough to get stuck in your head on repeat for days on end. There are plenty of heavy moments on the album as well, "Renegade", "Lost in Apathy" and "Chaos Theory" to name a few. They offer up fat, chunky riffs that have a good bite to them. Overall another well done album from this long standing member of the metalcore movement.
