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.

This album marked the departure from Nuclear Blast and also marked them to slow down their pace from crazy to just midpaced. What once was Northern Hyperblast is no longer on this album.

I remember when it came out and all the critics were calling this album "hardcore". They are right, partially. Now the guitar riffs do sound somewhat hardcore-ish. Other than that the vocals are still intact from the older albums. The music that is churned out is still Kataklysm but like I said its slowed down, so to me its not the goddamn same.

Pretty much the only track that stands out for me on this is "World of Treason II", and that's a friggin instrumental track. The track that utterly horrifies me is "(god)head". It has a nice little groove beat at the beginning, YAY! ok so that was sarcasm folks.
Thats all I have to say about this.

Rating 3 out of 10
