Imagine Circus of Power and Lemmy meeting up at a Norwegian biker rally, shooting a few whiskeys and deciding to cut a few tracks, form a band and you have Chrome Division's Doomsday Rock and Roll. It's high octane, unleaded, strapped in with a spiked leather strap, "rock and metal" that is made to increase your heart rate and move your volume dial to the right. Eddie Guz, formerly of The Carburetors, smashes through each track with his gut knot lead vocals and never let's up for 12 tracks and is complimented by impressive slayers Ricky Black and Shagrath on guitars. Luna and Tony White on bass and drums respectively, are in a lint free pocket throughout the entire cd.

Notable tracks are Serial Killer, Here Comes Another One and We Want More--which you will after listening to this release.

Shagrath - Guitars
Luna Bass guitar

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise 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.
