Maximum Metal Rating Legend
5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 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.

Debut solo album from Astral Doors vocalist
This talented frontman has released his first solo record to date. Power metal fans will know Johansson's voice from Astral Doors, Wuthering Heights and Lion's Share. Joining the singer is Lion's Share guitarist and bassist Lars Chriss (producer) and Andy Loos. Johannson makes it a family affair by adding his son Nils Fredrik Johansson on drums. There's guests ranging from Grave Digger to Bloodbound...but the question is how good is it? Well, I think I've started to become saturated with Johansson's voice over the years and I'm just not that enthusiastic about hearing more material and projects from him at this point. Overall, this is an average power metal release and that might be good enough for most fans.
Recommended for fans of: Wuthering Heights, Astral Doors, Lion's Share, Dio
