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 Swedes Martyrdöd have shared new music. The band will release their fifth album, Elddop, later this month, and the title track is now streaming through the Soundcloud player below. Elddop comes two years after the band released Paranoia. Go ahead and enjoy the new tune here.
Southern Lord will release the CD/LP editions of Elddop in North America on July 22nd, with a special European version of the vinyl coming out on La Familia and D-beat Raw Punk. Directly after the album's release, Martyrdöd will take on Europe on tour supporting Converge.
