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.
"The Silver Asylum", a brand-new track from Norwegian black metallers Sworn can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
"The Silver Asylum" comes off the band's as-yet-untitled new album, tentatively due in late 2011/early 2012 via an as-yet-undetermined label.
Sworn previously stated about the material: "Earlier there's been a mix between very melodic/atmospheric tracks and straight forward almost thrash-like tracks on our albums. We do this because we have a passion for both styles, and love to incorporate them into the Sworn sound.
What we've done on this third album is to make each song represent our sound a lot more, with both melodic and hard-hitting parts, while still being unique in themselves. This defines us a lot more."
Other songtitles set to appear on the next Sworn album include "Corridors Of Dark Salvation", "The Keeper" and "Mot Stupet".
