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.
Dutch symphonic rockers Within Temptation have revealed today that Tarja Turunen will be the guest vocalist on their new single Paradise (What About Us?) and posted a trailer showcasing the video for the song. You can watch it below. The official release for the single and video will be on September 27th. You might know Tarja from a little band called Nightwish and now with her own solo career.
Also, Within Temptation announced earlier that the new single would be released as an EP, including three demo versions of brand new songs in addition to the single, and the band had this to say: "By releasing these demos we want to invite you in our home studio and show how we capture song ideas at an early stage of creating a new album. These demo versions are far from their final sound on the album, but will give you a hint of what we're working on. It will be fascinating to hear what the end result will sound like, once the album is released."
This is not "The Heart of Everything" like I thought they might do, but still sounds very good, and with Tarja here, AWESOME
They also said that one of the songs might have some growls in it, so fingers crossed!!
