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.

10. Why Would the Capture Set Free the Flies?
It didn't suprise me at all to see this band was from Sweden.

Heavy, riff-laden chops combined with mid to fast paced tempos have been done to death by countless bands from that country already...but it's a tried and true fomula that wins me over every time. Featuring former members of such big name acts as Entombed, Dark Funeral and Grave, it should be no suprise to anyone that you're going to be treated to some high-class groovin' death metal. Vicious Art does not disappoint as tracks such as "A Whistler And His Gun", "The Poet Must Die" and "War" exibit some clear, intense pummeling honouring the old Gothenberg sound while not coming across as some second-rate wannabe. All 10 tracks held my attention and almost caused me serious whiplash. I'm a sucker for the combination of heavy, aggressive music that still allows you to headbang instead of staring at your stereo wondering if the cd is skipping. THIS STUFF SMOKES!!! Not much else to say other than if you love the groove/grind of heavyweights like Bloodbath and Grave than this will knock you on your ass as well.
