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.
23:36 - Overrwatcher I'd say that MS is generally somewhat close to the general consensus, with exceptions. Melodeath gets overrated, metalcore underrated. And there is a notable difference in modern album scores.
23:28 - !J.O.O.E.! One could argue that that album's appeal is underground =V
You might remember that last year, Earache Records took down from streaming sitesDecapitated's entire catalogue of music released by the label in retaliation to various disputes brought forth by the band. The Polish death metallers will now be taking legal action against their former label, Earache Records, over unpaid royalties. To raise money for legal fees, the band is selling a limited edition of a brand new '20 Years of Madness' t-shirt.
Decapitated just premiered a brand new video. The Polish death metal masters are showcasing the song "Veins" from their latest album Blood Mantra, out since the 26th of September 2014 under Nuclear Blast Records.

Essentially, you can't buy or stream these albums from iTunes or Spotify now.
