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.

11/28/2018 - Review by: Eric Compton
Moshing the Earth with Slayer-esque thrash
These Ontario Canada thrashers formed in 1985, and remarkably still have three original members in the band. The band went on hiatus in 1990, breaking the silence in 2016 with their first studio album, 'No Peace'. This new one, 'Saviours', is your standard Slayer-esque thrash, not doing much of anything original. But, it's still enjoyable and entertaining, moshing the Earth with cuts averaging six-minutes in length. 'They Kill for Gods' is my favorite, a moody cut that builds in intensity with a doomy vibe that transcends into a faster temp around the four minute mark.
Recommended for fans of: Slayer, Exodus, Blessed Death
