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.

Even if you canít pronounce their name or have ADD and hate songs that take 7-12 mins of your time, itíll be worth it to give these German Metal purists a listen. Boasting 9 nine tracks that carry you away on a journey through European mythology under the notion that all religion is spawned from Occultism. Aside from heady subject matter the album comes complete with top notch vocals from Markus Becker whose tendency towards melody fits well with crunchy riffs and a clean rhythm section. Itís a must for diehard fans of Traditional Metal.
