Rating:
9.0
In what can only be described as a natural progression of one of the most highly regarded melodic death metal albums of the decade in Stone's Reach, Be'lakor have taken to the studio once more with the hopes of building on their already unrelenting momentum.

How did this album get rated so low? It's nearly on par with Stone's Reach -.-

8.6 low? You must be trippin'

Maybe he's new to the rating system?

Well he's never given a single rating under 6, so that might explain it.

I realise it's a good rating in comparison, but then again most bands' efforts are worthless.

I rate albums in comparison. 10 not being perfect, but an album that I can listen to repetitively with no complaint.

In addition I don't bother rating albums that are lower than a 6 because the first song puts me off so much it's impossible to give it a fair rating.

I admit to exaggerating the amount of praise this album deserves, but my rating proceeded only after a few spins at which point I had yet to tire of it. I am still in the process of re-rating most of the albums to a lower level But yes, this is the album that had the greatest impression on me this year; I'm a sucker for melodies as opposed to complexity, as much as I love a good amalgamation of the two

That's sad. This is pretty average when it comes to their style

If you don't like this album to the core, then you have no ears. Nothing else can explain it

But there is nothing special or interesting about it, I could predict how most of the songs would go on, it's repeating the same old style of all the other melo death in the most imitating way, I mean following exactly the same musical path as all the other melo death did

Be'laBore ran over my dog and punched my daughter. That's my legitimate reason for not liking them.

I guess you don't waste enough time on MS like me since you didn't get the reference.
I agree with what you said about this album, though I put this band above most other melodeath bands these days.
