With members from Dark Funeral, Sanctification, Project Hate and Vomitory making up the nucleus of this band you'd be hard pressed to guess exactly where they were going to go with their music on "World Wide Death". HAHA, just kidding. Another tribute to Sweden's old-school style, these guys just throw down the gauntlet and charge head on like a wild bull. There's death metal out there with no soloing that absolutely bores me and than there's bands like Vicious Art and God Among Insects who muster up such a groove-laden sound that you care not if the string noodling ever rears it's head. Recording this monster at the now infamous Abyss Studios certainly helped this band immensely as the sound is thick and clear...and did I mention heavy? Damn. I have to question this style's lasting power as this isn't something I'd spin day in and day out but it's certainly good enough to keep at the front of the collection of grind cds I spin on occasion. Sorry Bolt Thrower, there might just be a new sheriff in town!!!

Maximum Metal Rating Legend - Click for Full Details
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.
