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.
This retro doom movement is possessing most of my listening of late. Ghost B.C., Noctum and now Black Wulf. This Oakland band will be a much talked about affair this year based on the validity of debut record "Mind Traveler". The genre's mandatory thick drums and thicker riffs makes for a glue that holds fast for this mid-tempo build up. This is probably smarter than Grand Magus but still possessing the same metal authority and self confidence. Grab this one early so you can say you were there in the beginning.
