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.

Thrash is back in style apparently.

This is Dew Scented's sophomore release and is chock full of old school thrash. Lots of people will say "Oh they just sound like somebody else" or "I can think of five other bands that sound like them". Well so fucking what!! Nowadays, there isn't much variety floating around in the metal world and you just stick with what you like. If you don't like it then don't listen to it. But enough with the small rant.

Dew Scented is fast and brutal. If you are planning on driving and listening to this album, use extreme caution because this album will cause you to speed and become enraged while playing ensues. Fast, melodic guitars, bombastic drum beats and Haunted style vocals comprise this CD. For fans of thrash this something you will thoroughly enjoy. The best thing I can say for those of you who are looking for something heavy but not repetitous is to give this CD a listen.

If you are a fan of The Haunted, then you will definitely like this album. It is very reminiscent of "The Haunted Made Me Do It". So much so that there is a song that almost resembles "Bury Your Dead" that appears on the aforementioned album. Check out this CD if you want something fast and melodic.
