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
Hail Of Bullets have launched a video teaser for their new album with bits of new music and also revealed the album title and artwork. The Dutch death metal giants will release III: The Rommel Chronicles via Metal Blade Records and a new song will be launched on September 9th. For now, you can see the band's new album cover on the video and the first taste of what is to come.
Dan Swanö said about the new HOB longplayer: "Hail Of Bullets return for their 3rd album, armed to the teeth with a thunderous death metal onslaught that combines the raw ferocity of the 1st album with the more expanded arrangements of the 2nd. A death metal masterpiece!"
