    Metal Music Archives, aka MMA, is a fresh metal database that is looking for new members to join in. Monthly gifts (such as Amazon gift cards) are given randomly to those who collaborate: write reviews, add releases and so forth.

    Posting my latest informal yet hopefully informative reviews here also.

    NOTE: The last two reviews of this 'issue' date back to last June when I first released those reviews in MMA. I found it useful to post some of those 'oldies' here too.

    Vordr - III
    Vordr has always been an odd bird in the Finnish black metal scene - so odd that I never got really interested in it. But after getting my hands on the third Vordr full-length and listening to the music closely along with the lyrics, it did open my eyes more wider.

    When compared to earlier works, this third album doesn’t differ much from them: over a dozen of short, fast, and almost punkish songs with high-pitched cleanish vocals that inevitably remind me of some young lunatic boy. …

  • A Running Tally, Phaze II - 2008

    Pretty straightforward. If you can't figure it out for yourself, you are a stupid person and I don't want to converse with you.

    90+ = buy it, d/l it, steal it, borrow it and conveniently forget to return it, step over your own mother to get it
    80+ = killer, wholeheartedly recommended
    70+ = Good, but not exceptional. Only for fans
    60+ = somewhat enjoyable, but flawed
    50+ = so so, fodder for completists
    40+ = pretty bad, but some redeeming features
    30+ = the sound of boredom
    20+ = I've heard farts with more musicality
    10+ = the band/artist deserves a sound beating for this turd
    0+ = shit by any other name would smell as foul
