OK OK, So this record has been out for awhile, but I want everyone to know that these guys are seriously left in the dark by all fiends of metal.

At first listen to Neck, I was confused, And I mean really confused. So many different styles merged into one, only gets me to scratch my head. But like a cancerous boil, it grew on me. Now I have not been able to get this out of my cd player. Which isn't a bad thing.

Grouped into hardcore for the hardcore-ish vocals, I seriously wouldn't know what style to put this monstrosity of a band in. This album sees the band getting tighter and tighter. Like a Dolphin's ass, Water tight. Stingmask 2 opens this album up with a numetal style of playing but then just gets creepier as the song continues. Crawl Away has a really good acoustic opening that just leads to craziness, also with clean singing in it too!! Shun Fist is just a wacky song with little hoots and yells with a out of tune sounding sludge guitar. Although my beef with this album is that it has Three Crosses on it again!!!!!! Its the second time they have recorded the song, albeit its better this time around. But how many times can you rerecord a song? Open Window makes me cry. It reminds me of the good times..............(insert pussy comment here). Old Teeth is also a very deserving song as well. It just makes me upset that these guys haven't got any attention. Ah alas, the metal world and their ignorance.

Rating 10 of 10 (gave the 10 because of the overall wackiness and originality)

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.
