05:17 - Fearmeister Yea, and so do I. I can fucking sing, air guitar and air drum Black Metal (the album) from start to finish. If that's not evidence of a 10, idk what is
05:15 - deadone Actually you are applying my scoring to your thinking.. Also something can be soulcatching and imperfect - I like Venom FFS.
05:09 - Fearmeister Exactly, you can't have 'unused' numbers. To leave 10s empty is simply stating that there is a level beyond soul catching
05:07 - MetalDoomMaster I think it's easier to think of 10s as "best of the best" instead of perfect. By your rating standards, there shouldn't even be a 10 on the scale. There must be some of those 9s you like more than other 9s.
05:04 - Fearmeister see? You're simply proving my point more and more. In fact, that is pretty much the same thing I do, just bump the numbers up by 1
05:01 - deadone I buy 8s (generally essential). I buy 7s if they have the odd great song or offer a specific experience (non-essential). I don't buy 6s. A 7 can have repeat value (it is good after all)
04:57 - deadone What certain albums? See an 8 to me means I enjoy it a lot but it doesn't get mu blood pumping. 7s are generally "ok to listen to and enjoy to some level but no spiritual connection." 6s are "innoffensive background music."
I've kind of developed a taste for deathcore lately and now non ironically enjoy Suicide Silence, Carnifex, Whitechapel, and even some Emmure (Speaker Of The Dead is good, everything else is still pretty lame) but this band just always came across as horrible to me and this EP has not helped their status... Who the fuck is their target audience? Its not "metal" enough for the 16 year old's who want to piss off their parents, it has screaming vocals which makes it off putting to hard rock fans, and its really just horribly written and uncatchy.
