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.
Aside from Autumn I (which I dislike due to the vocals) this is one great EP. Looking forward to the full-length album a lot, which will be released this year according to Jake Rogers himself (I've read it on the Facebook page). Obviously he's heavily influenced by Agalloch as I never heard music more similar to Agalloch before. But that's definitely a good thing in case of Gallowbraid.
Seriously, Salt Lake City, Utah is becoming a great place for bands seeing as both Gallowbraid and Caladan Brood are from there.
