Valume Nob - The Most High - Crash Music 2004 Reviewed by Axeman

Track Listing
1. Pleasant Memories

3. Together As One
4. Boots
So, members of Graveyard Rodeo, New Religion and Crowbar decided to get togeather and jam some full-on hardcore. Must be all that sludge music has them feeling "down" because this is pit-mongering mosh-metal mayhem at it's best. With a sharp production, bullying lyrics and a few live cuts thrown in, I liken this 5 song ep to a typical street fight...wild haymakers flailing in the wind and then it's over before you know it. I don't see the whole point of it all myself but any hardcore fan will enjoy the hell out of this.

Bottom Line: What you see is what you get with this band. Straight up anarchy. This is not the kind of music that will "grow on you". Either you like this style or you hate it.

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.
