Maximum Metal Rating Legend
5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

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.

France's Aosoth is back with album #4, one of Black Metal's most anticipated releases of 2013! An Arrow In Heart is the follow up to 2011's 'III' one of the best BM albums of that year. Although An Arrow In Heart is not quite as good as III, it's still light years above most other BM acts around these days. There are plenty of epic song lengths, blast beats, and discordant riffs much like Blut Aus Nord. Standout tracks include the title track and Ritual Marks of Pentinence. However, AAIH is a bit more polished and accessible than III, which may turn off some fans. In the end, AAIH is a very solid album, worthy of a listen or two.
