Osheaman's The Number of the Beast review is a review that I enjoy reading. Great writing technique and pretty funny.

UltraBoris' Kreator reviews. Emotionally charged and funny enough to make me buy most of thier albums instead of burning them, without listening to them first. No regrets on those purchases...

My reviews. My reviews kick ass. You wish you could write reviews as good as mine :P


I like OSheaman's review on Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra's "The Keys to the Gates of Apocalypse". Actually if i remember correctly he suggested it to me to begin with.

The review for the Rodovest demo was pretty good and got me to check it out.

Mortiis' Fodt Til a Herske reviews.

Falkenbach reviews i've read...especially the ones on the second LP.

There are more...Just need to remember.

Abominatrix's reviews for Blut Aus Nord's 'The Work Which Transforms God' and Ved Buens Ende's 'Written In Waters' are quite enjoyable reads.
There was a few reviews for Destroyer 666's 'Unchain The Wolves' I thought were quite good as well. I think it was Pyrus's I liked the most (sorry if I got the wrong person).

All the Unchain the Wolves reviews are very good, including mine. :) I think someone made a thread about that once.

Yeah, I think I saw something a while back when I was an non-poster. And yeah, I really need to get that D666 album. The connection I'm on is lagged to the shithouse today because my friend is using it to get some Battlefield Lan Pack. No bandwidth equals slow speeds, no downloads and lots of frustration.

You can bring up an old review if you feel like it.

What that just a bad Passion of the Christ joke, or am I missing something?

Boris's recent review of Motörhead's Inferno really makes me want to get that album, especially since I've been on a huge Johnny Cash kick lately.

You know bad stuff is going to happen when a jew asks for a crucifixion.


If old reviews can be pointed out as well:
The aforementioned Grim&Frostbitten's Carnivore review
Most of Snxke's reviews (save perhaps the earlier ones)
Example of a justified '100': Abominatrix' review of Master's Hammer's Ritual
OlympicSharpshooter's early-Metallica reviews, although most are 100's, are well supported by what he writes.
For an interesting thesis: UltraBoris' Master of Puppet's review.

I must say, PainMiseryDeath's latest review induced a few good laughs from me:

Even I laughed at it, and it's my Demo.

PainMiseryDeath = Winnar!

I can thank my shitty 4 track for the problems with this demo.

I quite like Sacraphobic/GoD's new review for Nokturnal Mortum's 'Goat Horns.' Not trying to be 'clevar' or anything, but it's quite well-written and extremely informative. If only I could say the same for the other 30-odd reviews I just went through...

And I accepted it. ;)

At the time of the last post, I'd gone through about half of the waiting reviews. At the time of this post, I've gone through all but one (well, five, actually, but I'm leaving a certain group of four to simply languish/rot).

So you were the one that accepted the two reviews I wrote for Chimaira and Soul Embraced?

I don't really recall the Soul Embraced review, but yes, I accepted the one for Chimaira. In fact, I should thank you--that particular review served to greatly relieve the tedium. :thumbsup:

I can see what you mean. From now on I'll be writing reviews that describe the music, and have some flair to them. Thanks :thumbsup:

Thanks again. I'm also quite proud of my Glorious Burden review, as well as Scream Bloody Gore. I really need to go over my old reviews and edit the fuck out of them...cause a lot of them are terrible.

I've been touching up a few older reviews as well. I'm thinking of redoing my review for Elvenking's wyrd.

I just deleted a bunch of older ones. I will rewrite them sometime. I'll probably delete some more and do a total tear down.

Indeed. 'Twas me. Love all of those reviews - especially chaossphere's and Grim & Frostbitten. Incidentally, does anyone know where Grim is these days?

Favourite reviews and must reads are Abominatrix's Pernicious Enigma, Vim Fuego's Hell Awaits, and most of the Nespithe reviews.
