4.5 superb
Beherit Engram
Beherit returns with an ambient/black metal crossover CD that uses many small ideas in collaboration to silhouette a big picture. Vicious, simple riffs build into trance-like, ritualistic songs whose subtle moods belie their primitive atmosphere. Come for the brutal darkness, stay for the emotional depth like the sudden descent of nightfall.
Profanatica Profanatitas de Domonatia
A development of the American black metal style that stays true to its roots but is not afraid to seek varied moods and techniques.

4.0 excellent
Birth A.D. Stillbirth of a Nation
Awesome thrash but not retro. It's alive! And it reminds me a lot of DRI, especially the vocals, but has its own style.
Blaspherian Allegiance to the Will of Damnation
Thunderous, primitive old school death metal with a voice of its own.

1.0 awful
Absu Absu
Absu return with an album lacking direction. It mixes death metal, heavy metal, black metal and progressive rock at random, never really managing to write a song but throwing every riff in the book at the listener. It's impressive technically but boring musically.
Pestilence Resurrection Macabre
Pestilence based their reputation on well-crafted riffs and songs. This has neither. It takes The Haunted style two-chord rhythm riffing with lots of complex edges, simple pop song structures, and repeats them ad nauseam. It's not heavy, it's boring.
