Comments:
 

While I'm a pretty diverse Metalhead, liking "Mallcore" and radio music within genres like Nu, Alternative and 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; varying from Traditional, to Technical/Progressive, to Brutal, to Atmospheric/Experimental.

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

How I base my ratings:

100% - Absolute perfection
90%-99% - Good... with a twist
80%-89% - Objectively good but still something missing
70%-79% - Not bad
60%-69% - Getting in there
50%-59% - Half good
40%-49% - Disappointment
30%-39% - Things aren't in proper order
20%-29% - Sucky-sucky
10%-19% - What did I just listen to...
0%-10% - Nu-Depressive Suicidal/Experimental Powercore/Djentgrind/Christian Rap

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

Afterbirth: 76%
Baphomet + Banished: 58%
Ceremonium: 60%
Demilich: 45%
Rivers of Nihil: 74%
Suffocation: 58% (okay, that's kinda vague...)
Whitechapel: 25%

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

The lists below contains the bands I'll be reviewing that are available on the site, based on full-lengths, demos, EPs and even compilations (not reviewing singles, live albums and others) that contain unheard material or releases that were complied together, which helps in reviewing entire bands' discographies altogether.

Keep an eye out that thanks to some compilations and records which their editions have included other material; new or old have already been reviewed automatically. For examples: Suffocation's newer Human Waste EP editions that include the band's first demo. Ceremonium's and Demilich's compilation albums that are quite identical and 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 or reviewed by my pick, which will be specified.
