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.
Circle of Silence
The Rise of Resistance
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.
