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.
Are you back? Good, because I'm about to get started. The basic structure of this album is a fun, simplistic and catchy industrial album. This is nothing you haven't seen before; your standard forty minute album with thirteen, three-ish minute tracks. The only thing that differentiates this from any other industrial album is the awful album title, and immature album cover. Apart from those two differences, this is just another, sub-par album: repetitive songs, cheesy synths, and even worse lyrics.
What's not to love?
I mean really, this is a catchy slab of music that makes my toe tap. Sure I probably wouldn't pick it off my shelf and play it every single day, but this is far from being terrible. In fact, I'm even going to go out and say, I like Satanic Pop Metal. There, happy now?
But really, if this album was titled anything but, I'm sure it would not be getting the rap that it has. It's funny to see that something as small as the cover, or title, can sabotage a perfectly fine album. It's almost saddening to think that most of the people bashing this, probably haven't even heard it past the second track. In the end, Satanic Pop Metal is decent, if you give it a chance.
If that video is anything to go by then this is far too straightforward and functional to be given less than 5 really. It's so straight up and inoffensive that it practically begs for an average score, rather than a negative one.
