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.
I've kind of developed a taste for deathcore lately and now non ironically enjoy Suicide Silence, Carnifex, Whitechapel, and even some Emmure (Speaker Of The Dead is good, everything else is still pretty lame) but this band just always came across as horrible to me and this EP has not helped their status... Who the fuck is their target audience? Its not "metal" enough for the 16 year old's who want to piss off their parents, it has screaming vocals which makes it off putting to hard rock fans, and its really just horribly written and uncatchy.
