The album is alright, but it's unremarkable next to their previous two albums, it doesn't stand out in any way, and in truth feels quite half-assed at most times.
Dark Fortress Eidolon3.0

Converge All We Love We Leave Behind4.0
A great follow-up to Axe to Fall, Converge serves another journey through extreme human emotions, and does so with quality.

If an album should be judged by the emotions it invokes in you, Stab Wounds is definitely top of the game. Fantastic, morose album that makes you wanna kill yourself and think it's fun.

Katatonia The Great Cold Distance4.0
Katatonia Viva Emptiness4.0
The Monolith Deathcult Triumvirate4.0
An album that feels somewhat quirky due to all the themes it encompasses. This can detract from the listening experience moderately, but overall it's a very solid piece with many highlights.
Cannibal Corpse The Wretched Spawn4.0
Amazingly brutal, full of gore, heavy, catchy, groovy and lyrically abhorrent. What a fun album!
Animosity Animal4.0
Burning Skies Desolation4.0
Ne Obliviscaris Portal of I4.0
Whoa, what an album. Sounds like a fresher Opeth with violins. The only bad point are the clean vocals, which sound bad.
Abnormality Contaminating the Hive Mind3.5
Solid brutal death metal with plenty of groove and no hardcore influences at all. Should appeal to the purists, but not only to them.
Cattle Decapitation The Harvest Floor3.5
All Shall Perish The Price Of Existence3.5
Greatly made deathcore with a lot of variety, ideas and musicianship. Some breees are there, but they aren't too bad. They do detract from my personal listening experience, though.

Fantastic album full of aggression, melody and loneliness. Definitely a great follow up to No Heroes, beating its predecessor.
Vildhjarta Masstaden3.5
A very decent Meshuggah clone which breaks the trend of melody-oriented djent bands. And pulls it off pretty decently.

It's pretty good, but you need several listens to appreciate this album. Not very heavy unfortunately but oh well, you can't have everything.
Deicide Amon: Feasting the Beast3.0
Deicide Insineratehymn2.5
Pretty fun, but definitely not the strongest point in Deicide's discography. Bible Basher is lots of fun and the best track here, rec'd for any Deicide fan, that's for certain.
Vader The Beast4.0
Vader Necropolis3.0
This album is the epitome of "been there, done that". Probably the least groundbreaking and varied out of all of Vader's releases. Still, it's just as pleasant as any of them.
Vader Welcome to the Morbid Reich4.0
Omnium Gatherum New World Shadows4.0
Assemblage 23 Defiance4.0
Assemblage 23 Failure4.0
A huge step up from the previous album. This is enjoyable through and through. Awesomeness, highly recommended. Also, the best album by Assemblage 23.
The Contortionist Exoplanet4.0
This is the best album bearing the tag of "deathcore" that I've ever heard, it's a musical masterpiece that puts the whole shallow genre to shame. And I like it.
Daath Daath3.0
Dethklok Dethalbum II3.5
The best death metal band in the world doesn't disappoint in the slightest. This album is full of American-flavored melodic death metal with cool neo-classical solos and humorous lyrics, but hitting hard nonetheless.
Assemblage 23 Contempt3.5
The Faceless Planetary Duality3.5
Wonderful album giving off a great futuristic vibe, a very pleasurable listen if you like tech death and sci-fi themes. Plus it has cool artwork. It's not as good as Akeldama though.
The Juliet Massacre Demo1.0
wee dee dee doo, wee dee dee dee dee dee doo! wee dee dee doo, wee dee dee dee dee dee doo!
Tragedy Vengeance4.5
Beyond Creation The Aura4.5
Omg, it's probably the best tech death album in quite a long while to be honest. A bit one-dimensional and not very futuristic feeling (has more of a classical feel actually), but dammit it's a good album! Freaking awesome.
Emmure Speaker of the Dead1.5
Sylosis Edge of the Earth3.5
Oceansize Effloresce4.5
One of the best debuts and albums overall in the prog rock/metal scene, filled with utterly amazing moments and melodies. A magical, captivating album.
The Red Chord Fused Together in Revolving Doors4.5
A superbly chaotic, technical and experimental album which is still probably their best. Highly recommended for fans of deathgrind.
Glass Casket Desperate Man's Diary4.0
Amazingly good band. Definitely the best deathcore album next to TRC's "Fused together in revolving doors". Check this out :3
Daath The Concealers3.5
The album is less varied than the previous effort, but pulls off certain quirks better than "The Concealers" did. Doesn't quite live up, but still isn't to be overlooked.
Daath The Hinderers3.5
Dark Tranquillity The Gallery4.0

Dark Tranquillity Character4.0
Dimmu Borgir Enthrone Darkness Triumphant3.5
Dimmu Borgir Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia3.5
Dimmu Borgir Death Cult Armageddon3.5
The album has less flair than its predecessor, instead incorporating some industrial, nihilistic-sounding themes and being more misanthropic overall than P.E.Misanthropia, ironically enough.

Kalmah They Will Return4.0
Kalmah Swamplord4.0

Kalmah 12 Gauge4.0
The Acacia Strain Continent3.0
There are one or two good songs on this one, but that's too few to warrant it a stellar rating. This feeling may change when you listen to it for enough times, though. It gets better - as opposed to Wormwood, which gets worse. This album can grow on you to become something really good.
The Acacia Strain Wormwood3.0
An album that walks the fine line between legitimate music and food for bros. Enjoyable in small doses, but a chore to listen to for long. Well, that, at least, are the first impressions. The album can grow on you to the point of being thoroughly enjoyable.
Veil of Maya The Common Man's Collapse3.5
This album is pretty sweet when you're listening to it at the time, but it leaves absolutely no lasting impression, that's how devoid of emotion the songs on it are. Still, very cool at the time of the listening.
Born Of Osiris The Discovery4.0
This album is really fun at first, but it loses its charms relatively quickly and feels like it's not that good compared to bands like BTBAM. But then it recaptures the mood and strikes at you with furious anger, a real grower. Takes time to appreciate but the rewards are substantial.
TesseracT One4.0
A pretty solid debut from a djent band with ambient inclinations. These guys aren't as poppy or groovy as Periphery, but they're more contemplative and ethereal. If you dig that kind of stuff.
Between the Buried and Me Colors4.0
A very interesting and fresh album that connects a whole plethora of music influences, a fair dose of humor, tasteless wank licks and ass-kickery. Lemme tell you, I like it a whole deal. It unfortunately does suffer from some bad songwriting issues.
The Devin Townsend Project Deconstruction3.0
Honestly, I expected more when Devin said he would make the heaviest album he ever has... this shit sounds like Ziltoid, even worse at times. Heard all that a million times already.
Despised Icon Day of Mourning3.5
Guano Apes Walking On A Thin Line3.5
This album is a grower - at the start it's hard to notice anything worthwhile in the may songs it contains, but it grows to be a very enjoyable and light-hearted album containing powerful emotions.
Metallica St. Anger2.5
Divinity Allegory4.0
Like Into Eternity on steroids, Divinity delve into a unique branch of progressive melodic death metal. Guess those Canadians really are something else after all.
Divinity The Singularity4.0
Decapitated The Negation3.5

Chimaira Resurrection4.0
Justin Bieber My World 2.01.0

Swallow The Sun New Moon4.0
More of the stuff that made Swallow the Sun good in the first place. Sad melodies etc. This album focuses more on clean vocals though.

Devin Townsend Terria4.0
What an awesome album. A pure joy and pleasure to listen to, at any given moment. Love love love.
Devin Townsend Ocean Machine: Biomech4.5
Some of the best and most heartfelt music I've ever heard, it's quite awesome. Captures many unique moods and showcases a great deal of Devin's songwriting and instrumental potential.
Devin Townsend Ziltoid the Omniscient3.5
The Devin Townsend Project Ki3.5
Quite a captivating album indeed. Not much replay value here, but the perfect thing if you're in the mood for it.

Deicide The Stench of Redemption3.5
Some of the best Deicide around, excellent melodies, brutality and overall awesomeness. Pretty fun to listen to, that's for sure.
Deicide Till Death Do Us Part3.0
Avenged Sevenfold City of Evil3.0
Torchbearer Death Meditations4.5
A very, very solid album dealing lots of melody, aggression and beauty within its running time. Definitely a plus for fans of melodic death metal.
Strapping Young Lad The New Black4.0
Strapping Young Lad Strapping Young Lad3.5
Fantastic album, I love many tracks off it and it definitely deserves a listen. Highly recommended for fans of extreme metal. Not quite as epic as Alien or City, though.
Strapping Young Lad Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing3.0
Strapping Young Lad City4.5
Pat Metheny Group The Way Up4.5
A great sonic journey with a theme in mind, more emotional than a symphony most pompous - a definite must listen for all fans of jazz in all forms.
Robbie Williams Escapology3.5
The Eternal Suffering Miasma3.5
Into Eternity Into Eternity3.0
An album of much potential, some of it unrealized or overshadowed by bad production and vocal lines. Still worth checking out for sure.
Into Eternity Dead or Dreaming4.0
Into Eternity Buried in Oblivion4.5
Into Eternity The Scattering of Ashes4.0
Into Eternity The Incurable Tragedy2.5
This album gets way too much bashing. Most of the songs are enjoyable, except for the awfully sad title tracks. And the lyrics, they're too overbearing to be enjoyable. Make you think about terrible stuff.
Scar Symmetry The Unseen Empire3.5
A step up from Dark Matter Dimensions and a very pleasurable listen, but it cannot get close to the sheer impactfulness of the previous albums.
Vital Remains Dechristianize4.5
Miseration Your Demons ~ Their Angels3.5
An awesome album with many great influences. Crushingly heavy, but not foregoing melodies and hooks, filled with a unique atmosphere.
Omnium Gatherum The Redshift3.5
A very good album, albeit suffering a bit from bad lyrics and vocal delivery. Songs like "No Breaking Point" or "Chameleon Skin" are freaking hits, though!
Katatonia Night Is the New Day4.0
Mors Principium Est Inhumanity3.0
A fair melodic death metal album. Gets boring pretty soon, but "Into Illusion" is a great song. Listenable, but nothing to wow about. Seriously.
Unmoored Indefinite Soul-extension4.0
This album's production takes getting used to, but the melodies themselves are breathtaking. A very worthwhile listen by any means.
Sonic Syndicate We Rule the Night1.0
Therion Sitra Ahra2.5
Has a few true hits, pleasant to listen to, but has some weak tracks on it too (just like Lemuria and Sirius B). Basically only Kali Yuga III is worthwhile.
Pendulum Immersion3.5
A very fun and listenable album shifting towards a more vocal approach than the previous ones. Contains some great tracks, but it's not recommended over Hold Your Colour.
Torchbearer Yersinia Pestis3.5
The first album by Torchbearer, being the least melodic and varied of them all, but possessing very prominent influences from the three heaviest brands of extreme metal - a textbook effort on how to mix thrash, black and death. Not to mention it's good.
Vader Litany3.5
Vader Revelations3.5
Vader Impressions In Blood3.5
Soilwork Natural Born Chaos3.5
The album's fairly enjoyable, but has its dose of the ailments that soilwork would continue having for all their following albums - bad melodies, subpar instrumentation and overal so-so-ness.
Soilwork A Predator's Portrait3.5
Soilwork The Chainheart Machine4.0
The apogee of their old sound, and their best album overall. If you're an emo faggot, don't touch this and go for Figure Number Five instead.
Soilwork Steelbath Suicide3.5
Opeth Blackwater Park4.5
Like with most albums rated so high, it tends to come off as overrated first, but after many many listens it finally affirms that its rating is fair and just.
Soilwork The Panic Broadcast3.5
Too emotional as always. I give good grades to albums too early and then have to lower my rating. This album is great, really great (especially for Soilwork), but 4 is all it could get, as it tends to get on the boring side real quick.
Soilwork Stabbing the Drama2.5
In Mourning Monolith3.5
A decent progressive melodic death metal output. Its sound can get very tiring after several listens, though.
Torchbearer Warnaments4.5
Solution.45 For Aeons Past3.5
Only half of the songs are actually good, but good enough to win this album a 3,5. These guys are nowhere near as good as Scar Symmetry, though.
Woe Of Tyrants Threnody4.0
Very melodic, very heavy.. this is probably the finest example of modern American melodath. Like The Black Dahlia Murder but more varied, symphonic and engaging.
The Devin Townsend Project Addicted4.0
Miseration The Mirroring Shadow3.5
This is some immensely good death metal. Even more brutal than The Few Against Many, and much, much more brutal than their debut. Less melodic, without cleans, but colossal nevertheless.
Dark Tranquillity We Are the Void3.0
DT doesn't sell out. In Flames and Soilwork, you should watch them, admire them and follow their example.rThey change, but they do not sell out.
Sonic Syndicate Burn This City1.5
Teenagecore. The new singer has a pleasant voice, but that does not justify playing teenager punk and labelling oneself as melodic death at the same time.
Battered Battered3.5
A very good thrash metal effort with a bleak, dystopian, industrial vibe to it. Also props for the vocalist Siggy Olaisen for not sounding like your typical thrash metal "daddy", but having more of a "pissed teenager" (in a good way) vibe to his voice.
Meshuggah obZen4.5
This album is close to perfect, it doesn't have much cons to it, almost none at all to be honest.
Old Man's Child Vermin4.0
Phenomenal album, different than In Defiance but that just makes the discography richer.
The Prodigy Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned3.5
The Prodigy The Fat of the Land4.0
Dimmu Borgir In Sorte Diaboli3.0
I have to admit I was a bit hard on this album. It can be enjoyable, very much at it. Doesn't copy the grandeur of their previous works AT ALL, but in small doses it's very enjoyable even.
Dimmu Borgir Stormblast (Re-Recording)3.5
Edge of Sanity Crimson II4.5
Amazing album, the quintessential listen for anyone who's into death metal. It should change many things about your perception of the world.
Dark Funeral Attero Totus Sanctus3.0
Vader The Art Of War4.0
Rammstein Mutter4.0
Rammstein Herzeleid3.5
Rammstein Reise, Reise4.0
Zandelle Vengeance Rising3.0
A worthy Iron Maiden clone. But a clone to the core.
Sonic Syndicate Only Inhuman1.5
Blinded Colony Bedtime Prayers3.0
An average yet pleasant album of the new softer soilwork-like melodeath trend. Props for antireligious themes and decent vocals. This sounds like what Sonic Syndicate would be had they had talent.
Soilwork Sworn to a Great Divide2.0
The Few Against Many Sot4.0
In Flames Reroute to Remain2.0
It's a ver ver ver ver ver ver veeeeeeeeery average album. Poor, that's what it is.
In Flames A Sense of Purpose1.5
Old Man's Child In Defiance of Existence4.0
An overall wonderful album which unfortunately suffers of some riffs that fail to carry the song to its apogee. Highly recommendable and contains some undeniable hit songs, but not as well-rounded as Vermin.
Old Man's Child The Pagan Prosperity4.0
A very good melodic black metal album delivered by Galder. Some of 90s best in this particular genre. Not for the kvltest of black metalheads, but otherwise very good.
Old Man's Child Slaves Of The World3.0
It's pretty enjoyable but tends to get stale and boring after a while. In any case, it's much more raw and less symphonic than their previous efforts. Still, worthwhile, recommended to fans of the band.
Strapping Young Lad Alien4.5
Used to be my favorite album by SYL, but got surpassed by City. Be that as it may, tracks like Imperial, Skeksis, Zen and We Ride speak for themselves. EPIC
Red Harvest A Greater Darkness4.5
Dark Tranquillity Fiction4.0
Kalmah The Black Waltz4.5
System of a Down System of a Down4.5
Their debut is their most musically mature and concrete piece of music. Ironically, each following album was worse and shifted ever more towards the mainstream.
Soilwork Figure Number Five2.5
Steve Vai Real Illusions: Reflections3.5
Amon Amarth With Oden on Our Side3.5
The softest Amon Amarth album to date, but very good nevertheless. Filled with many very catchy songs and emotional melodies, it's probably the best album to get you into the band.
Amon Amarth Versus the World3.5
A very good album by Amon Amarth introducing hits such as Death in Fire or the monumental ...And Soon the World Will Cease To Be. Just an Amon Amarth album, not the best, but neither of theirs is the best since all are great.
Swallow The Sun The Morning Never Came4.5
A fantastic debut for a fantastic band that has started to establish them as a leading force in today's death/doom metal. Grips you by the balls right away and never lets go.
Swallow The Sun Hope4.5
Lacuna Coil Shallow Life2.5
Lacuna Coil have become comfortable with their new mainstream direction, which produced an album that is indeed poppy, but doesn't feel like it's ashamed of its poppiness like Karmacode did.
The Beloved Failure On4.0
U2 The Best Of 1990-20004.0
Gunther Pleasureman5.0
Scar Symmetry Pitch Black Progress4.5
Their best album with no single song straying even a little from perfection. A trademark release for the "new melodeath" trend, there is not so much as a single mischosen riff or vocal line on this album.
Scar Symmetry Symmetric In Design4.5
It's great - probably even better than PBP - more emotional and ethereal sounding. It boils down to preference, but I think both of these albums rule hard.
Scar Symmetry Holographic Universe4.5
This album is really something, although the lack of heaviness doesn't deserve it a 5.
Joe Satriani Strange Beautiful Music4.0
I love the oriental influences this album has. Some overall fun music, many moods and atmospheres, great to listen to whenever you feel like listening to some good instrumental rock music.
Scar Symmetry Dark Matter Dimensions3.0
Damn, looks like I got too excited when I wrote this review. The album essentialy has all that made the previous ones good, but unlike those, it feels hollow and unessential.
Satariel Hydra3.5
This album deserves a higher rating. It's really grown on me, mainly because of its unique ambience and atmosphere. This band deserves to be known better.
Tristania Beyond the Veil4.0
Therion Lemuria4.0
Beautiful, goddamn beautiful. Along with Sirius B this is a real masterpiece. Some songs are boring, though. But not many.
Kreator Hordes of Chaos3.5
A fantastic album giving a melodic approach to thrash metal. The highlight of this is the outro song, Demon Prince, a must for any fan of the band.
