5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

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.

Throwback band to early 80's and 90's era black metal
Omenfilth are a throwback band to early 80's and 90's era black metal infused with just a touch of thrash. The first four tracks are all in this vein and read like a manual for your classic black metal track. It works really well and the band are clearly able to play this style very well. The vocals are particularly wicked with that classic bm shriek and some rasps thrown in for good measure. Everything moves along fine until you hit the final track, 'Black Ritual of Demonic Possession'. The song started out with this really cool, eerie atmospheric sound to it that I was waiting to fade into more bm wonder. I kept waiting and waiting and finally looked down to see that this track was nearly 27 minutes long. So I skipped ahead a few minutes to more atmospheric horror music. It continues this way for the ENTIRE track! This one song is longer than the four other songs that comprise the rest of the release. I really enjoyed the album up to this song and would have scored it damn near perfect but that final track both for the length and the absurdity of it.
