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.

Atmospheric black metal done right with cool lyrical inspiration
Six albums in and this is the first time I've heard of Raven Throne. After listening to their latest opus though, I'll be going back to check out their back catalog for sure. With their newest offering, the band blisters through some seriously tight and nifty atmospheric black metal. Their playing is a formula that is tried and true to most black metallers but the mixture of guitar sound combined with the tremolo riffing is really well done. The thing that struck me about the album though came from part of a statement I read by the band. The band was inspired by poems from Belarus, their stomping grounds and utilized that as their lyrical base. Just a really cool touch.
