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.

Black metal stew that is tasty, meaty and marinated in atmosphere
One of the things that immediately struck me about Myrholt's 'Med Samme Naal, Under Samme Maane' was the intent to suck you in to a sense of expectant normalcy before pulling the rug out from under you, wrapping you up in it and beating you for assuming you knew what was coming. While the band has roots in early 90's black metal, they also utilize pacing very well to help break things up and add little moments of surprise throughout the album. Take "Mikrokosmos" for instance. The song starts off with this wicked little riff that leads in to an explosion of blast beats. But then just when you think you know where the band plan to take things, this jazzy little breakdown comes in and catches you off guard. Little nuances and touches like that really make this album unpredictable and thoroughly enjoyable. I highly suggest giving this one a spin, you'll definitely enjoy the journey.
