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.

  • Bone crushing death metal



  • Whenever I am given material from labels that I've never heard of or that I've been given warning about, I enter into the experience with a little trepidation. As the title track for My Own Grave's album started, I began to think that I was going to have a very short listen on my hands.

    However, as the first notes of "Necrology" begin reverberating through my speakers, I was hooked. While this may sound like typical death metal to most, I was pulled in by the vocals of Mikael Aronsson. I don't know how to describe it other than full of venom and emotion. You can feel that he puts the emotion into his singing.

    The musicanship on the album is pretty tight with the trio of Anders Hrn on guitar, Max Bergman on bass and John Henriksson on drums. This quartet blasts out a quality, head banging dose of death metal. Filled with blood soaked lyrics, crushing guitar riffs and blast beats to satisfy even the most brutal death metal fan.

    The album progresses quite nicely with very little feeling of repetition. There are a few songs that sound similar but that is usually par for the course with this genre. Overall though this album is a damn fine piece of death metal.

    For those of you metal heads that are looking for something to pulverize your bones into dust, look no further. My Own Grave delivers a bone crushing death metal release with "Necrology". Go online or to your local metal store to pick up your copy now to begin the aural assault that this album will deliver to your metal craving system.
