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.

Circle of Silence is a great power metal band hailing from Germany. Reminiscent of Cage and Dream Evil, Circle of Silence delivers a great European power metal release with "The Rise of Resistance". Full of galloping, catchy riffs, blistering solos and guitar work, "Resistance" is the power metal album I've been looking for. Throughout every song I found myself banging my head along in absolute elation. "Blood of Enemies", "One Moment of Hate" and "In the Absence of Your God" are my favorite tracks. This is definitely a must listen for you metal heads out there.
