What are some of your favorite metal review websites or websites in general?

I don't really look around that much so I only have two mainly...
http://www.bnrmetal.com
http://teufelstomb.com (don't click yet, read below)

Just a quick note I want to make. Teufel's Tomb has reviews of bands with very violent or "obscene" album art. It's very easily an "X-Rated" site and even has some artwork that has been banned in America. Wait, did I say even? Well take out that emphasis, no need to be surprised there.

BNR Metal is just an encyclopedia of metal. I know it's some sort of crime but I like it more than that one popular metal encyclopedia that I forget the name of.

Teufel's Tomb is kind of a fun website for me because the reviewers there are very entertaining. They are complete ass holes and proud of it. Both bands they hate and love tend to be good for me to check out.

well, for more mainstream metal music, there is my favorite

www.live-metal.com

goof reviews of some of the more popular items. not the underground death/black metal that most of you seem to like, but some good advice if you can judge the validity of some of the reviewers there. Jeff Makai is my fav

I guess every metal album in the world is on Encyclopedia Metallum, and since they have a review feature for each one you can go check those out. That's really the extent of my review knowledge - I just listen to an album and make my own mind up. Very Happy

The lame reviews rate each song out of five
They just pick there favourite band and give every song 4/5 and 5/5

Well I do read reviews for mainly two reasons:
1. Entertainment value, and
2. Learning about new bands and albums.

If I want to decide on whether to get an album or not I can almost always just go *listen* to it somewhere on the web. "Good" music ultimately comes down to personal taste. When I hear about a band that sucks, unless it looks really hideous or something, I can usually still check it out and often times I will enjoy it.

I just go on youtube and start listening to a playlist and if something sweet comes up I'll investigate that band

That's a really good idea. I'm trying it out right now. Whoa this bound sounds cool...Cannibal Corpse? Never heard of them, checking it out right now. Haha no out of this list of 16 I see 2 that I've never heard and 1 that I haven't given a try. Works good.

I actually used to review a fair bit. Me and some guys from another forum would write up reviews for stuff we liked and put it on a Blogspot. I guess we all just got quite bored with it and it became too tedious.

You run out of things to say if the album isn't top notch
