Eighties Meets Nineties... Oh, the nostalgia...
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hades is just one of those bands no one really hears about. Split in the late 80's, Dan Lorenzo and Alan Tecchio formed a very cool band in itself: Non-Fiction. Dan decides to focus once again on the political, almost satricial pun-like Hades with songs such as "In The Words Of The Profit" and "To Know One" and of course the title track "$avior$elf". Maybe losing a little of the Non-Fiction quality, but still grounded in the old Hades sense, $avior$elf is a solid ball of steel. Not as brutal as "Resisting Success", "$avior$elf" finds itself a little more thought out, a little more mature in most areas. Well thinking and more politically incorrect than Bill Maher, it probably won't please the nineties Korn/Limp Bizkit-junkies or those who still believe metal should be played and growled through at Warp 5, it will please the 80's metal maniac and might even surprise a 90's fan here and there. To knock it down a notch, I believe there is more room for production improvement (maybe I'm nitpicking) and one or two more songs would've done nicely. And with track #3 being a meat by-product filler interlude, "$avior$elf" is a solid 4 stars, definitely worth a measely test drive on your CD player."
