00:03 - Korah Yeah, MS ratings on new albums are totally f****ed! You just have to watch ratings from 2000 and ratings from 2016! Metal was'nt so much better than today releases.
23:53 - Czerny Reiter There's a dearth of reviewers on the site and most of what gets reviewed ends up getting a good grade (on the grounds that pro-bono reviewers mostly review what appeals to them).
23:48 - Overrwatcher I feel as if SSUS's review backlash is a perfect example of this. When he gave a 2/10 people didn't say much. When he gave a 9/10 people questioned his review integrity.
23:42 - Overrwatcher I will always bring up BMTH's "There Is A Hell" in this regard. Very well received literally everywhere but MS. Here it's one of the lowest rated albums in the database.
23:38 - Overrwatcher Bands can put out similar quality records to 10 years ago yet get over 1 point less. People have been much more negative recently. And MS also seems to shit on some albums at random.
01. The Tragedy Within 02. Beyond Inner Sleep 03. A Deadly Path 04. Passage 05. Dead Emotion [Paradise Lost cover] 06. Hypia 07. 2nd War In Heaven 08. A Desire To Leave 1 - Obscurity 2 - Surrounding Hell 3 - ...Of Leaving
Summoning The Bygones is another one of those releases that feels like it's a lot of really interesting, well-thought out components, combined together make an underwhelming experience, all things considered.
I understood that this is a re-recording of their debut plus a couple of new songs (and Dan Swano as a guest vocalist). should be interesting but I kinda wished that they would move on from their older stuff and build upon the great Sudden Death Syndrome
The drumming on this album sucked for me. boring as hell, i love the guitar playing and general atmosphere but the drumming killed it for me. you keep thinking "oh man this would be a great time for a nice black metal fill here or there" and it never comes.
