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.
01. Herald Of The Aeon Of Darkness 02. Those That Wander Amidst The Stars 03. Cyclopean Temples Of The Old Ones 04. Incantation Of He Who Sleeps 05. Guardians Of Gateways To Outer Void 06. Ceremonies To Awake Thy Ageless Hate 07. Morbid Black Dreams Bringing Madness 08. The Gate Of Nanna [Beherit cover]
There are some pretty cool songs on this album. You'll find other bands doing a lot of the same stuff, but I personally really like Blood of Kingu. If it fits your tastes (Drudkh-esque , cold, atmospheric metal with an occult edge) you might like this. The first album is actually better for the sake of those qualities.
