Comments:
 

While I'm a pretty diverse metalhead, liking "mallcore" and radio music within genres like nu/alternative/groove metal and metalcore (not the British emo ones, the real hardcore-based ones), I mostly adore distinctive and extreme metal genres like progressive, gothic, doom, and almost every subgenre of death metal; ranging from old school/traditional, to progressive/technical; even if some are more atmospheric and/or experimental, deathgrind, and brutal. Blackened isn't so bad either.

---------------------------------------

How I base my ratings:

100% - I SEE THIS AS AN ABSOLUTE WIN
95% - Good... with a twist
90% - Objectively good
85% - Not bad at all
80% - Solid
75% - Above average
70% - Standard
65% - Getting in there...
60% - Decent
55% - The good kind of bad
50% - Half good, half bad
45% - Disappointment
40% - Not quite my tempo
35% - Things aren't in proper order
30% - Boring
25% - Sucky-sucky
20% - Are you kidding me?!
15% - What did I just listen to...
10% - Yeah, no
5% - A molecule of any goodness
0% - The equivalence of worthlessness

---------------------------------------

My average ratings for each band (that has more than one release based on whatever I reviewed):

**Important note: split albums, singles, and videos.

-I might like a split that is based on the current band I'm listening to but didn't want to listen to the other band/s on the split at hand. According to the rules, I can't skip and just focus on the one band I'm listening at the moment, so I'll individually rate all the bands in the split and in the end give a final rating for the entire split record. The individual ratings will accumulate to the average rating for whatever band I'm reviewing and treated as if it's full-length of its own.

-As for singles that were solely released, as I'll be reviewing such singles, however, I won't include their ratings with the band's average rating (because assuming the single is perfect/100% and an album might be way less, it wouldn't be right to have it accumulate.

-Live videos aren't something I would've touched at all, but if it's something that I've already watched, then sure I'll throw my two cents at them. Of course, they won't end up in the bands' average rating either.

So the purpose of this "average band rating" is to only focus on the full-lengths, demos, EPs, and compilations of my choice since they're (especially full-lengths for obvious reasons) the primary discography of bands.**

Afterbirth: 80%
Aftershock: 70%
As I Lay Dying: 67%
Baphomet & Banished: 58%
Bolt Thrower: 74%
Ceremonium: 60%
Corrin: 85%
Deicide: 48%
Demilich: 45%
Diocletian: 49%
Killswitch Engage: 73%
Light the Torch (first two albums only as Devil You Know): 75%
Lykathea Aflame & Appalling Spawn: 90%
Memoriam: 85%
Nocturnus AD (including the old names): 74%
Origin: 51%
Rivers of Nihil: 74%
Seemless: 60%
Suffocation: 58% (fuck math, that's vague)
Vital Remains (Glen Benton era): 55%
Whitechapel: 25%

---------------------------------------

The lists below contain the bands I'll be reviewing that are available on the site based on full-lengths, demos, EPs and even compilations that contain unheard material or releases that were compiled together, which helps in reviewing entire bands' discographies altogether. Singles and splits will be reviewed if only they're a necessity to a band's entire discography. Live videos/albums and others will be either skipped or reviewed just for fun.

Keep an eye out that some records that have alternative editions may include other material; new or old, have already been reviewed automatically. For example: Suffocation's newer Human Waste EP editions include the band's first demo; Ceremonium's and Demilich's compilation albums (that the two are quite identical) both include old materiel from demos and/or EPs in the past. That's what I mean.

Supposedly, I'll be reviewing in chronological order since that's the right thing to do, and bands without any specific notes (in brackets) means they're either entirely reviewed based on everything they've released (to my knowledge) or reviewed by my choice, which will be specified. And you'll see inside the brackets what I've officially reviewed; as in status, and what is being written at the moment.
