05:18 - deadone It'd be a 9 if songs like Sacrifice or Heavens On Fire were better. It'd be a 10 if these were excellent.
05:17 - Fearmeister Yea, and so do I. I can fucking sing, air guitar and air drum Black Metal (the album) from start to finish. If that's not evidence of a 10, idk what is
05:15 - deadone Actually you are applying my scoring to your thinking.. Also something can be soulcatching and imperfect - I like Venom FFS.
05:09 - Fearmeister Exactly, you can't have 'unused' numbers. To leave 10s empty is simply stating that there is a level beyond soul catching
05:07 - MetalDoomMaster I think it's easier to think of 10s as "best of the best" instead of perfect. By your rating standards, there shouldn't even be a 10 on the scale. There must be some of those 9s you like more than other 9s.
05:04 - Fearmeister see? You're simply proving my point more and more. In fact, that is pretty much the same thing I do, just bump the numbers up by 1
05:01 - deadone I buy 8s (generally essential). I buy 7s if they have the odd great song or offer a specific experience (non-essential). I don't buy 6s. A 7 can have repeat value (it is good after all)

About the front art, vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga commented: "So it's finished, ready, done and dusted as they say. The cover was done again by our by now resident art executioner Paul McCarroll from Unhinged Art. Simple I think you will admit but definitely one that we argued least about through all the years, dark, macabre and beautiful it perfectly portrays the themes of the new album, which I will get into shortly."
