About Us

One site to review them all...

Sick of crawling the web looking for heavy metal reviews? Tired of not knowing what the critical consensus is for a particular album? That's where we step in!

Our mission

We strive to make it easy for you to suss out what the critics have to say about your favourite music. Our team scours web and printed publications to aggregate critical opinion into an easy to understand rating (i.e. the Metalscore). In other words, we do the hard work, so you don't have to!

What is the Metalscore?

We tried to think of the most metal rating system we could, and this eventually led us to go with the tried-and-true Gold, Silver and Bronze system. Releases are awarded these ratings based on their Metalscore, a weighted average which is calculated automagically using our top-secret proprietary algorithm. We have no say in the rating of any release, it is all based on the data!

Let's get critical!
