Personal text: My reviews are rated according to Metal Storm's rating system (1-Worst Ever, 2-Pure Shit, 3-Very Bad, 4-Bad, 5-Not Good, 6-Average, 7-Good, 8-Very Good, 9-Excellent, 10-Perfect). Additionally, I rate considering that the reader actually buys albums (8-10 for digital, 12-15 for CDs, 20-25 for vinyl) instead of streaming music for free or by paying a few euros a month. I also try to predict and take into account how an album will age, and if it will still be listened by anyone in ten years' time.

9-10 (green): must buy if you are a metal fan.
7-8 (yellow): should buy if you are a fan of the style(s) the band plays.
5-6 (orange): may buy if you are a fan of the band and/or a collector.
1-4 (red): various degrees of telling you to stay away.

Whole numbers are enough, no decimals needed.

Latest Staff pick

Witches Hammer - Damnation Is My Salvation
30.04.2020 | Pit riffs
Bandcamp music player

Imagine a band forming in 1984 only to release their debut album in 2020. Witches Hammer throw early Slayer, Possessed and '80s Canadian hardcore punk attitude in the grinder and what comes out is spat on the face of the clean-cut, sweet-smelling, contemporary thrash.

Teenage riot music played by dudes who are well past their teenage years.
