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.
The Last Sunset
Overall this one is rock solid
The seemingly endless stream of new bands and albums continues to flow. Adastra washes up from Finland with their debut album, 'The Last Sunset'. This group is formed from the ashes of Breaker and features a clean and precise traditional sound similar to Heaven's Gate and Pegazus. The band possesses the prototypical European flash, mostly evident on the hard rock exhibit 'Back to the Ring' and auriferous 'Stood My Ground'. Overall this one is rock solid, yet once again, I have no time or space for it with this much inventory.
