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.
Long time no see Dark Fortress or at least new releases from the band. The black metallers' latest album Ylem came out in 2010 but the return is near. The German band has recently started recording their upcoming album. For now, we know that the plan is to release it in early 2014. Let the anticipation begin...
Some words from the band: "Dark Fortress have just started tracking drums for their (yet untitled) new album. The album is roughly scheduled for a release in early 2014. More news will follow soon..."
A first festival is already confirmed for 2014:
13.-16.06.2014 (GER) Weismain - Legacy Open Air (Waldstadion)
