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.
Within Temptations have posted the following update:
"We know you're all very curious on what will happen surrounding our new DVD. To start things off, we posted 2 clips online in high resolution quality. As the quality of Youtube isn't great, we wanted to put these online, for you to see how amazing "Black Symphony" looks!
You can check out these clips in various bitstreams depending on your internetconnection, but also send them to your friends and family. Those of you who send out the video the most, will win a signed "Black Symphony" DVD! Enjoy"
