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.
German power metallers Helloween have broken the silence and announced that they have just entered the studio to work on their new album, which they plan to release in the beginning of 2013.
The band issued the following statement on their official website: "Watch out for news and reports from the studio as the Helloween-machine is on a roll again.... The recordings for the 7 Sinners - follow-up will be running until the end of 2012 with a release being looked at in the beginning of 2013."
Says guitarist Michael Weikath: "Right now we are busy with finalizing the songwriting process and are getting ready to take the accumulated ideas into a final selection for the new record. Everybody in the band is excited and eager to take what we have worked on so far to the next level."
"The new production will again be helmed by long-term producer Charlie Bauerfeind and will of course contain all the trademarks. Already in this early stage the new effort promises to be much more than a fine follow-up to the highly acclaimed Gambling With The Devil - and 7 Sinners - albums. Bombastic epic pieces have been worked on as well as ultrafast heavy songs and mid-tempo anthems. After the major 7 Sinners world tour and a well deserved break the boys have just entered the studio to work on their new studio album."
"Bombastic epic pieces have been worked on"..i like that cos till now epic songs was rerserved for Keeper albums and as we know they wont do anymore Keeper albums so this is great news Just hoping that Sascha and Weiki will be more inspired on solo parts!
