I am not going to hide my bias. Alexander Von Meilenwald is a crafter of some of the finest blackened doom metal on the planet, and I am most definitely a fanboy for The Ruins Of Beverast. Having been somewhat disappointed, however, with the project's previous Blood Vaults effort, I went into 2017's Exuvia with some pretty high hopes of the music redeeming itself. And by the grace of Nyarlathotep, those hopes have been met.

This guy is obviously judged differently than other bands. Even if its impossible - imagine if someone else had done this.
Someone should try to figure out the derivatas for rating TROB. If I give a 8 to TROB its like a strong 10 for any other band. A 9 means like 11.5, so even if I rated this with a 9 it means 11.5.

His albums still exist in the sphere of all music releases so the rating is still being compared to previous albums as well as anything that might be similar sounding. I think any fanboy of a band might think their most favoured artists are judged differently to others, but arbitrarily giving them higher universal scores still sounds a bit silly. It's not something you can "figure out" because there's no objective metric in which to do so. It's just fanboy inflation all the same Besides, there's rarely a better way of gauging an artist than against their previous works, and while this is a great record he's done better so giving them all flat 10s because you might think it's still better than something that might sound similar isn't very useful in a 10/10 system.

Most music exists in a sphere where its possible to compare it to the previous and the past. TROB exists in a sphere where it is being compared to the future. And as you cant compare things with what hasnt been done TROB exists in a sphere of its own forthcoming.
