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.
Since 2013, Italian stoner/doom metallers Ufomammut have been slowly working on a video project which will be released on DVD this October via the band's Supernatural Cat Records. The DVD features over 3 hours of live footage, interviews and outtakes: a documentary about these first15 years of the band called XV and also Magickal Mastery Live, a 12-song live act. A preview trailer of what the XV DVD has in store has been released.
This audiovisual experience will also be available as a special wooden 8GB USB drive.
On the subject of reaching this milestone, the band commented: "Oro was a particularly ambitious album for us, and the Magickal Mastery Tour was a great chance to revisit all of our favorite songs in front of really great crowds. When we took some time to reflect on what we had accomplished we knew that the best ways to celebrate our first fifteen years, was a DVD release, something for our fans to contribute towards and to treasure. We're excited about what the next fifteen years has in store..."
In addition to this DVD release, Ufomammut has confirmed that they will be heading into the studio to record their new album this September. The opus should see the light of day in spring 2015 via Neurot Recordings.
